One of the reasons we love our product so much is the way Hyundai is manufacturing its cars with the future firmly in sight. Here’s a quick list of some of the ways Hyundai is designing cars to have a lighter negative impact on the environment.
Hyundai Engineers For The Future
Fuel cell technology is an ideal solution in many ways. Zero use of gasoline, no harmful emissions whatsoever. Powered by clean hydrogen. In fact, the only by-products are heat (which is used to power the car) and water. Hyundai introduced the i-Blue concept car at the 2008 Chicago auto show, showcasing a third-generation fuel cell engine and the first-ever Hyundai built from scratch around the fuel cell itself. The i-Blue is capable of running more than 370 miles before refueling and can achieve a top speed of more than 100 miles per hour.
Hyundai will be introducing a line of hybrid vehicles, starting with the ’09 Elantra in Korea, with production expected in the U.S. shortly after. The hybrid Elantra will be powered by liquid petroleum gas (LPG) and it will be the first vehicle to adopt advanced Lithium Polymer (Li-Poly) batteries. Both of these will lower the operating costs of the car by more than 50% over a typical Elantra. And Li-Poly batteries give the added benefit of durability while holding a high-density charge.
A total of 15 Santa Fe electric vehicles have been supplied to the state government of Hawaii for actual usage. An electric Santa Fe can travel just under 100 miles on a single charge with zero emissions and very little noise, demonstrating the impressive capabilities of Hyundai in electric advancements.
