THE LATEST HYUNDAI TECHNOLOGIES ARE ABOUT TO CHANGE DRIVING FOREVER
Though the styling of automobiles has changed drastically over the last few decades, they've fundamentally remained the same vehicles, at a structural and mechanical level, for generations… Until now. As the world moves deeper into the 21st Century, a new wave of revolutionary automotive technologies, of which Hyundai is at the forefront, is set to not only change how cars operate, but even how people live their lives. From new propulsion systems to smart safety features that can intercede to prevent accidents from occurring in the first place, innovative Hyundai technology is set to completely alter the nature of transportation!
The New Generation of Hyundai Technology Features Smart Safety Systems That Can Help Prevent Accidents
The standard definition of an automobile 'safety system' was something that helped protect passengers during or after an accident. With the newest generation of models, Hyundai vehicle technology has gone far beyond that limit, as smart/active safety features can now not only prepare an equipped auto for a crash, but even help it avoid one in the first place. One of these innovative Hyundai technologies is Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection. Incorporating a low-power radar system and optical sensors, AEB can sense when an impact is about to occur and stops the vehicle before the driver can react. A similar system, Smart Cruise Control, can even maintain a pre-set distance between an equipped Hyundai and other vehicles on the highway while at high speeds. As this Hyundai technology features radar-based sensors as well, it also works day or night and in all weather conditions.
Many of the latest smart Hyundai safety technologies are also designed to make driving easier. Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Lane Change Assist, for instance, can help with both normal highway driving and backing up in a parking lot, while the Rearview Camera system that's now standard on many Hyundai models can prevent fender-benders.
As Gas-Piston Engine Technology Reaches Its Zenith, Hybrid, Plug-In Electric, and Hydrogen Fuel Cell Systems Step Up to the Plate
Due to advances in valve timing, forced induction, and other technologies, the conventional gas-piston engines that power many Hyundai vehicles can now achieve higher fuel economy, power output, and even reliability ratings than what was ever thought possible a few short years ago. The most intriguing and exciting Hyundai technologies that relate to propulsion, however, involve hybrid, plug-in electric (EV), plug-in electric hybrid (PHEV), and hydrogen fuel cell-electric powertrain systems. The EV version of the new Ioniq series of mid-sized hatchbacks, for instance, has a range of 110 miles on a single charge, while a plug-in hybrid electric version can draw from either a battery or conventional fuel for extended operation. Hybrid and plug-in hybrid electric Hyundai technology features have also already garnered the venerable Sonata nameplate a number of prestigious environmental and engineering awards.
An even more extreme example of innovative Hyundai technologies, however, are the fuel cell powertrain systems that are either currently in development or, like the Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell trim, available in select markets. Able to be completely refueled in less than ten minutes and sporting a nearly 300 mile range, this Hyundai vehicle technology combines hydrogen and oxygen within a secure cell to create electricity that drives a conventional electric motor, with harmless water vapor as the only byproduct. Used to generate electricity on NASA's Gemini and Apollo missions in the 1960s, hydrogen fuel cell technology is also extremely safe.
Staying in Touch and in Tune with Innovative Hyundai Technology Has Never Been Easier
The latest Hyundai technology features are also designed to work in a world where wireless communication and mobile devices are a part of daily life. Various integrated navigation, touchscreen, and calling systems mean that Hyundai drivers never have to be out of contact or off course, while Hyundai Blue Link® Telematics allows owners of equipped Hyundais to track a vehicle's location, view maintenance schedules and diagnostics, or start and shut down engines via smartphone, web, or even in-vehicle.
