4-type of hyundai motor’s
green technology vehicles

Cars that do not require any fossil fuel to operate and emit zero CO2 are the ultimate goal of Hyundai Motor’s ‘Blue Drive’ strategy. More specifically, the ‘Blue Drive’ strategy aims to improve the functionality of automobiles such as performance safety, and convenience while reducing pollution and fuel consumption. Hyundai Motor has introduced several green technologies and developed green cars with the guidance of the ‘Blue Drive’ strategy. As of 2015, Hyundai Motor’s green models include a Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV), a Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) which can be charged using grid electricity, a zero-emissions battery Electric Vehicle (EV) and a Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) which is regarded as the ultimate green car.

As the word “combination” is implied, Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) combines two power sources of an internal combustion engine and an electric motor. As Hyundai’s innovative development of parallel hybrids achieves better fuel economy with improved packaging efficiency, the Hybrid Starter Generator control technology further assists the engine clutch control and reduces the tension between the EV mode and the engine mode for smoother hybrid driving.

Plug-in hybrid electric vehicle

Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) is an advanced hybrid vehicle with extended battery life and greater energy density for more fuel-efficient and long-distance driving in all-electric mode. Whether driven on EV mode or HEV mode, PHEV has a significant advantage of providing greater driving performance while reducing levels of emissions by restoring the energy from an external electric power source.

Electric Vehicle (EV) uses electrical energy sources of electric motors and rechargeable high-density battery for propulsion. Powered by an external source of electricity, EV helps reduce carbon emissions. Equipped with a 27kWh lithium-ion battery pack, Hyundai’s EV provides optimized solutions for better performance, higher energy density and speed.

By combining Hydrogen and Oxygen atoms in a fuel cell stack, Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) stores compressed hydrogen under high pressure in tanks and produces its own electricity for power with zero exhaust emissions. As the first developer of the world’s first mass-produced fuel-cell vehicles, Hyundai continues to lead the future of sustainable motoring technology.
