Hyundai launches new smart urban mobility hub
This will facilitate Hyundai’s aim to advance the production of EVs.
Hyundai launches Hyundai Motor Group Innovation Center Singapore (HMGICS) to advance the delivery of its human-centric future mobility vision.
HMGICS introduces a new ‘smart urban mobility hub’ concept that includes an automated flexible production system and provides ways for electric vehicles (EV) buyers to interact with their vehicles and the Hyundai brand.
HMGICS will lead Hyundai’s future in the electrification era over the next 50 years as part of its challenge to become a 100-year company.
The facility is a 7-storey building capable of manufacturing up to 30,000 EVs per annum. Since early 2023, HMGICS has been producing IONIQ 5 and the fully autonomous IONIQ 5 robotaxi and will add IONIQ 6 to its portfolio of models built on-site next year.
The facility will also serve as a testbed for developing future mobility solutions including Purpose Built Vehicles (PBVs)
About 50 percent of all tasks are carried out by 200 robots, with humans, robotics and AI systems collaborating.
“Hyundai Motor Group is leading the mobility paradigm shift, but we are determined to deliver even greater levels of innovation. HMGICS will enable us to shape the future of mobility production, and indeed, the manufacturing industry, in collaboration with the culture of open innovation and forward-looking policies that Singapore is renowned for globally,” Hong-Bum Jung, Senior Vice President and CEO of HMGICS said.
