Future KIA And Hyundai Cars Will Have Solar Charging Roof And Hood

Thinking out-of-the-box is a NOT thing with most automakers. Tell them the goal is to reduce emissions, they give you hybrid or electric vehicles. While KIA and Hyundai also does the same, their latest plan will make them stands out. KIA Motors and its parent company, Hyundai, has revealed plans to introduce ‘solar roof’ charging technology on select Hyundai Motor Group vehicles. The solar panels are specially designed to be incorporated into the roof of the vehicles, to support hybrid and fully-electric vehicles, and even internal combustion engine vehicles.

We Can’t Help But To Cringe At This Over-modded Elantra With Iron Man-inspired Paint Job

You know we have a tag called “Weird Stuff”? Yea. We do. Under normal circumstances, custom cars will never fall under this category. It is almost impossible to brand a custom ride as “Weird Stuff” unless it was one that looks like a dick, or to be precise, one that was intentionally modeled after a man’s penis. Unfortunately, this is the day we stumbled upon one that fits squarely into this “Weird Stuff” tag and the custom ride in question is this not-so-tastefully-done third-generation Hyundai Elantra. I mean, as if modding an Elantra isn’t bad enough; to make it look like this is borderline blasphemy. Man, it sure takes a unique mindset to even dream up with this.

Hyundai Fuel Cell Electric Cars Drove Itself From Seoul To Pyeongchang

To showcase the company’s fuel cell development, the company has commissioned a head-turning, very black pavilion that is part art installation, part education center that aims to entertain and at the same time, educate visitors about its fuel cell technology. But the darkest building in the world is not the only thing the company had going; the automaker also announced, on February 4, a fleet of Hyundai next generation fuel cell electric vehicles had successfully completed an autonomous journey from Seoul to PyeongChang.

South Korea public car parts company, Hyundai Mobis has reportedly developed the world’s first panoramic sunroof airbag that is designed to protect the occupants in an unfortunate rollover. Yup. You heard that right. Airbag now has found a place on the roof too. Boy, why do I get the feeling that it is going to be standard on premium cars in not too-distant-future? And Hyundai is going to win on this. Oh, I know why. Because, the company has no less than 11 patents filed when developing this new safety feature and it isn’t a concept; it will be primarily implemented on the South Korean automobile manufacturer’s premium SUVs, starting with the Genesis SUV.

Hyundai Augment Reality Owner’s Manual Will Teach You How to Check Engine Oil Level

Every new car owner will be familiar with the thick car owner’s manual found in the car’s glove compartment, but not many did really pick it up and study it diligently. Why? Lets face it: it is boring as hell. Unless you are already familiar with the concept of automobile workings, that book will more likely be like book on the topic of relativity. It’s like rocket science. However, come later this year, owners of 2015 Sonata will be spared the dreadful tiny words of details and still be able to pick up some knowledge about the workings of their vehicle with Hyundai Virtual Guide app that can recognize more than 45 major features of the Sonata.
