Hyundai Motor Company has showcased its smart mobility ecosystem model in the lobby of its Seoul headquarters and will remain available until June 12 in order to further communicate its future mobility vision. The 1:8-scale model on display is a miniature of the exhibit shown at CES 2020 and includes integration of its Urban Air Mobility (UAM), Purpose Built Vehicles (PBV) and Hub (Mobility Transit Base) smart mobility solutions as part of a dynamic human-centered future cityscape. To realise its vision for smart mobility solution, Hyundai added a dedicated team to its design organisation for UAM design and enhanced collaboration between UAM Division, Design Center, and Strategy and Technology Division.

The miniature model demonstrates Hyundai’s vision of a future mobility ecosystem in urban use. The UAM is shown with its rotors tilting, enabling vertical take-off and landing and rotating horizontally for flight. On the ground, PBVs can be seen running on the road, traveling around the Hub, becoming part of the building when connecting to the Hub’s docking station. The Hub is not only a space that connects UAM and PBVs, but also serves as a new concept for connecting people, reflecting Hyundai’s determination to give people more quality time while providing seamless freedom of movement and the opportunity to enjoy diverse experiences.

In addition, mirrors are installed on the ceiling of the exhibition space to allow an immersive viewing experience from various angles. Videos of a future city transformed through smart mobility solutions will also be shown on large displays installed on adjacent walls.

Jaiwon Shin, Executive Vice President and Head of Hyundai’s Urban Air Mobility Division.said the UAM Division is leading necessary technological developments and working towards realising the introduction of Urban Air Mobility, which has been people’s dream for decades.

The exhibition aims to inspire Hyundai employees as well as other audiences with the company’s vision for future mobility as it aims to become a smart mobility solution provider. After the current exhibition ends on June 12, the model will also be showcased at major events around the globe.
