Hyundai Motor to Unveil H350 Fuel Cell Concept at the 2016 IAA Commercial Vehicle Show in Hanover
No. 49921-09-201669 hits
  • Hyundai Motor demonstrates light commercial vehicle application for hydrogen fuel cell technology
  • H350 Fuel Cell Concept takes under four minutes to ‘refuel’
  • Zero-emissions powertrain has no impact on load space

 

Sept. 21, 2016 – H350 Fuel Cell Concept at the 2016 IAA Commercial Vehicle Show in Hanover taking place from September 21 to 29. The powertrain study shows the potential for the company’s advanced hydrogen fuel cell technology in the light commercial vehicle (LCV) segment.

Providing a glimpse into the future of the LCV, Hyundai Motor’s H350 Fuel Cell Concept shows the suitability of the company’s pioneering Fuel Cell powertrain for commercial application.

Unlike a conventional electric vehicle, which requires a number of hours to recharge, the 175-litre hydrogen tank can be filled in under four minutes – similar to the time it takes to refill a tank of gasoline or diesel in a vehicle with a traditional internal combustion engine. The H350 Fuel Cell Concept has a total range of 422 km, and emits only water.

The Lab will explore four key areas: freedom to use mobility whenever and wherever; freedom to connect to everyday life while on the move; freedom from accidents and inconveniences; and freedom from environmental pollution and energy exhaustion.

The powertrain is intelligently packaged in such a way that its installation has no impact on the H350’s load area. Depending on wheelbase, the H350 provides 10.5 m³ or 12.9 m³ space – sufficient to accommodate five standard European pallets – or room for a 14-seat passenger compartment.

The Fuel Cell driveline enables almost silent operation of the vehicle contributing also to a reduction in noise pollution what makes it especially suitable for night deliveries in urban areas. The H350 Fuel Cell concept would be suitable not only for door to door and urban missions, but also to extended mileage missions thanks to the improved autonomy.

With the Fuel Cell powertrain capable of producing up to 100 kW (136 ps) and 30.6kg.m, the H350 Fuel Cell Concept is able to reach speeds of up to 150 kph – similar performance to LCVs powered by an equivalent internal combustion engine. Propelled by a near-silent electric motor, it also produces significantly less noise than conventional vehicles.

The H350 Fuel Cell’s powertrain is formed of a hydrogen tank, fuel cell stack, high-voltage battery pack, inverter, and electric motor. The 700-bar high-pressure hydrogen tanks, located under the floor of the vehicle between the two axles, store 7.05 kg of compressed hydrogen, which is then broken down into protons and electrons in the fuel cell stack. The electricity produced by the fuel stack is then stored in a compact 24 kW lithium-polymer battery pack, with the inverter converting the energy to an alternating current to power the 100 kW electric motor.

World leader in hydrogen fuel cell technology
Hyundai Motor is a world-leader in the development of hydrogen fuel cell technology, opening the world’s first mass production facility for Fuel Cell vehicles in February 2013. The company’s Fuel Cell powertrain represents a truly viable form of propulsion for everyday vehicles, from passenger cars to LCVs, and is the product of Hyundai’s commitment to sustainable transport.

The Hyundai ix35 Fuel Cell is the world’s first mass-produced and commercial available Fuel Cell vehicle, and is available to order from Hyundai’s dealer network. There are currently 50 units of ix35 Fuel Cell in use for members of the public in Munich, Germany. Hyundai’s Fuel Cell powertrain was demonstrated successfully during the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany, with the company’s Fuel Cell city bus used as an official vehicle throughout the tournament.

The 2016 IAA Commercial Vehicle Show is the world’s foremost exhibition for mobility, transport and logistics in the commercial vehicle segment. Hyundai Motor’s press conference takes place on Stand C61 in Hall 13, and begins at 11.00 CET, September 21.

02. Coherent and Timeless Design

The New Generation i30 evolves Hyundai's design language with a timeless and sculptural design combining precise, tensed lines and refined rich surfaces. The combination of excellent functionality such as roominess, good visibility and comfort is complimented by a sensuous and confident expression of design. Hyundai Motor is introducing a new design element at the front: the Cascading Grille, which will become the new family identity for Hyundai models in the future.

Exterior Design

The upright front of the new Generation i30 is confident and expressive, celebrating the new Cascading Grille that is characterised by a downward tapering gesture inspired by the flow of molten steel. The grille features chrome-plated dots for a sophisticated appearance that enhance the satin chrome surrounding on the standard version. In combination with the three-projector LED (low and high beam) headlamps and the vertical LED daytime running lights with indicator function, the New Generation i30 has a strong visual presence. To further enhance this, projector-type front fog lamps are integrated into the air curtains.

With its harmonious proportions, short front and rear overhangs, a long bonnet and a tapered roof silhouette, the car gets a sporty appearance and solid stance on the road. The New Generation i30 features a sophisticated sleek character line that flows naturally from the headlamp along the almost horizontal belt line to connect with the LED rear lamps and further wraps around the rear for a timeless appearance. The black rear spoiler enhances aerodynamics and makes the New Generation i30 look even more dynamic and compact. With a Coefficient of Drag of only 0.30, Aerodynamic performance is enhanced through several measures including an Active Air Flap behind the front grille and Air Curtains on each side of the front bumper to enhance airflow and reduce turbulences in the wheel housing.

Its muscular wide rear design with a sculpted and 3-dimensional appearance and the signature light graphic incorporating the high-positioned reflectors and fog lamps set the car apart on the road.

The New Generation Hyundai i30 is available with 17-inch two tone 10-spoke alloy wheels, 16-inch two-tone 10-spoke alloy wheels or 15-inch alloy ro steel wheels.

In order for every customer to pick their favourite colour there are in total twelve exterior colours consisting of three pearl choices: Stargazing Blue, Micron Gray, Phantom Black; and seven metallic choices: Demitasse Brown, Intense Copper, Moon Rock, Fiery Red, Platinum Sliver, Ara Blue andWhite Sandplus two solid choices: Engine Red and Polar White.

Interior Design

Getting into the New Generation Hyundai i30, customers are greeted by a clean and intuitive interior with a horizontal layout that conveys an elegant impression and a feeling of roominess. Chrome surrounding and high quality interior materials round up the calm and sophisticated atmosphere. The floating screen of the optional eight-inch navigation touch screen on the dashboard integrates all navigation, media and connectivity features and allows drivers to stay always tuned to the traffic ahead thanks to its ergonomic position. The new multifunction three-spoke steering wheel allows easy and intuitive operation of all functions through an ergonomically positioned operation controls and can be heated for enhanced comfort. The climate and temperature control is positioned conveniently in the centre console and can be easily operated through the dials without distracting the driver.

The New Generation i30 offers plenty of space for passengers and luggage alike and does not compromise on interior roominess for its sporty exterior design. The i30 makes driving comfortable for all passengers with segment-leading roominess. The feeling of space is enhanced by the optional panoramic glass sunroof which allows to tilt or to slide open.

The front seats can be heated or cooled in three stages and the power driver's seat comes with a memory seat function with two programmable seat positions.

03. Driving Performance

Choice of Powertrains

The New Generation i30 is powered by a range of small-displacement turbo charged petrol and diesel engines delivering a dynamic and efficient driving experience. There are three petrol engines and one diesel engine. Customers can choose between the new 1.4 T-GDI turbocharged four cylinder engine – a Hyundai first - with 140 PS, the 1.0 T-GDI turbocharged three cylinder engine with 120 PS or the 1.4 MPI four cylinder with 100 PS and one diesel engine: the 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine, available with three power outputs: 95, 110 and 136 PS and CO2 emissions starting from as low as 89g CO2/km (target value). Mated to the engines is either the six-speed manual transmission (6MT) or Hyundai's efficient and direct-responding seven-speed dual-clutch transmission (7DCT).

New 1.4 T-GDI – Light, Frugal and Fun to Drive

The 1,353 cc four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine is significantly lighter than its predecessor, the Gamma 1.4-litre engine. The unit's base weight has been reduced by 14 kg and it also boasts greater efficiency and power, delivering 140 PS and 242 Nm of torque.

The new engine incorporates a high-pressure single-scroll turbocharger integrated in the exhaust manifold to improve operational efficiency. The relocated and re-engineered turbo means throttle response time and low-end torque have improved. The new design injects fuel directly inside the cylinder, improving combustion rates for better power and fuel efficiency.

The new, turbocharged 1.4-litre T-GDI petrol engine is offered with the 6MT or the 7DCT, which gives a choice of fully automatic operation or manual gear changes.

The 1.0 T-GDI – Three-Cylinder Dynamism

The 1.0 T-GDI engine, developed by the Namyang Technical Centre in Korea in collaboration with the European Technical Centre in Germany, with 120 PS and 170 Nm provides a perfect combination of dynamism and efficiency.

A turbocharger with an electronically-controlled waste-gate actuator improves fuel efficiency by lowering pumping losses as well as improving throttle response and low-end torque. The unit features a six-hole GDI injector, pressured to a higher-than-average 200 bar, securing a clean combustion and improving fuel economy and emissions.

To keep the engine unit as small as possible, the exhaust manifold is integrated in the cylinder head and can therefore be cooled efficiently using the cylinder head water-cooling system. These efforts result in faster warm-up of the catalyst and ultimately in improved real-world fuel consumption and emissions.

The 1.0 T-GDI is offered with the 6MT.

1.6-litre Turbo Diesel: One Engine, Three Outputs

For customers looking for a diesel engine, the New Generation Hyundai i30 is offered with a 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder turbo engine with three outputs: the 'standard power' version with 95 PS, the 'mid power' version with 110 PS and the 'high power' version with 136 PS, delivering a maximum torque of 275 Nm. Both the mid power and high power version can be selected with the 6MT or 7DCT.

The Seven-Speed Dual-Clutch Transmission

Hyundai Motor introduced its first seven-speed double-clutch transmission in 2015, combining the benefits of automated and manual transmissions. The 7DCT provides an improvement in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of up to 20 % compared to a conventional six-gear automated transmission, while acceleration performance could be increased by up to 10 %.

The 7DCT consists of two dry clutches and an actuator for each clutch. Engine power is transferred independently into the odd and even gear train to always be ready to shift into the next gear without any torque interruption. For optimised responsiveness the electric motor-driven actuator is applied, while external dampers improve the noise, vibration and harshness during driving

Ride and Handling

The New Generation i30 has been developed and tested in Europe performing accelerated durability tests and dynamic testing on the most demanding race track in the world, the famous Nürburgring Nordschleife, as well as undergoing rigorous public-road testing throughout Europe from the coldest winter testing conditions in Sweden to trailer testing in the Alps and hot weather testing in the south of Spain to ensure that the high expectations of European customers are met.

The development engineers have defined the characteristics of the New Generation i30; precise, natural and connected steering; agile, responsive and predictable handling; a dynamic ride without compromising comfort with good body control. Compared to its predecessor the steering is 10 % more direct and the vehicle response is 15 milliseconds faster.

The new chassis of the New Generation i30 has been completely reworked to provide a dynamic and compliant driving experience with high levels of ride comfort. Contributing to this is the standard multi-link rear suspension for all versions with a dual lower arm and the performance-oriented shock absorbers.

Braking performance is optimised by an increased brake diameter size to 288 mm in the front allowing the driver to apply a stronger braking force especially in hot wheel conditions.

Strong and Lightweight Body: 53 % Advanced High-Strength Steel

Hyundai Motor is the only car manufacturer to make its own steel for the production of its vehicles globally with great benefits for the New Generation i30 featuring a strong and light body that enhances the dynamic performance and increases passenger safety.

The quantity of Advanced High Strength Steel has almost doubled to 53 % while at the same time reducing the weight of the body-in-white by 28 kg and increasing rigidity by 22 % in comparison to its predecessor. In production, the structural adhesives length has been increased to 112 m, improving stiffness while reducing weight.

04. Connected and Caring

Smart connectivity features that most customers require make the New Generation i30 a smart, rewarding choice. Customers can choose between the standard premium audio system with a five-inch capacitive LCD touch screen with integrated dynamic rear-view camera, Bluetooth connectivity and My Music functionality or the optional new generation navigation system with an eight-inch capacitive touch screen. For drivers who want to connect their smartphones with the eight-inch navigation system the New Generation i30 provides both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Both systems enable users to connect their devices to deliver and control music, telephone or navigation functions on-screen. Seamless connectivity allows drivers and passengers to stay connected while remaining focused on the road. To ensure that occupants' phones are always charged, the New Generation i30 also offers a wireless inductive charging pad (Qi standard) for mobile phones and a USB port located in the closed centre console.

The new navigation system comes with a seven-year free subscription to TomTom LIVE services. TomTom LIVE offers updated information in real time: weather, traffic, speed cameras and online searches for points of interest. The navigation system features 3D maps and is capable to display photos if you connect an USB stick.

Highest Active Safety

The New Generation i30 features the latest active safety features to comply with the highest European safety standards: Autonomous Emergency Braking with Front Collision Warning System, Smart Cruise Control, Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Keeping Assist System, Speed Limit Information Function and High Beam Assist. New to the Hyundai line-up is the Driver Attention Alert giving the New Generation i30 all available active safety features available for Hyundai Motor vehicles and making it the car with the most advanced safety package.

Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB)

The i30 is also fitted with AEB including Front Collision Warning System (FCWS), an advanced active safety feature that alerts drivers to emergency situations, braking autonomously if required. Using front radar and camera sensors, AEB operates in three stages. Initially warning the driver visually and acoustically, it controls the brake according to the collision danger stage, and applies maximum braking force right before the moment of collision. When a vehicle or pedestrian is sensed in front of the car, the system is activated, operating at speeds of 10 km/h or above and minimises damage when a collision is unavoidable.

Driver Attention Alert (DAA)

First in a Hyundai Motor vehicle is the Driver Attention Alert, a driver protection feature which helps monitor driving patterns in order to detect reckless or fatigued driving and prevent potential accidents. The system analyses various vehicle signals such as steering angle, steering torque, vehicle's position in the lane and driving time. In addition, the driver can adjust a user-selectable setting for the system's sensitivity. If the system detects inattentive driving patterns an audible sound and message on the instrument display panel will alert the driver.

Smart Cruise Control (SCC)

Using front radar sensors, SCC allows a constant speed and distance to be maintained from the vehicle ahead without depressing the accelerator or brake pedals; it is automatically cancelled when speed drops to 10 km/h or below.

Blind Spot Detector (BSD)

Also using radar technology, the Blind Spot Detector (BSD) with Lane Change Assist monitors the rear corners and, if another vehicle is detected, a visual alert appears on the exterior mirrors. If the driver then activates the indicators an audible signal is emitted. This also applies for a lane change situation when another vehicle is detected.

Rear-Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA)

Using the BSD sensors the RCTA system reduces the risk of collision with approaching traffic when reversing out of narrow areas with low visibility. Using a radar to scan a 180-degree area behind the vehicle for approaching cross-traffic, RCTA alerts the driver visually and acoustically.

Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)

The LKAS alerts the driver in unsafe movements at over 60 km/h by sensing the car's position. The LDWS sounds an alarm before the car moves over white, grey and blue lines as well as Bott's dots on the road, while the LKAS warns the driver acoustically and visually before inducing corrective steering to guide the driver back to a safe position.

Speed Limit Information Function (SLIF)

The SLIF uses the front camera and information from the navigation system to identify road speed signs and display the speed limit in real time. The information is displayed both in the navigation system display as well as in the TFT cluster.

High Beam Assist (HBA)

When switched to automatic mode, HBA detects both oncoming vehicles and vehicles in the same lane ahead at night and changes to low-beam as appropriate, reducing blinding effects on other drivers. Whenever there are no vehicles detected, the system automatically re-activates the high beams, maximising the driver's range of vision.

Highest Passive Safety

Featuring 53 % Advanced High Strength Steel, the New Generation 30 benefits from increased rigidity by 22 % and a high impact energy absorption and minimised distortion to protect passengers in the event of a collision.

Thanks to an improved hot stamping method, the side outer reinforcement of the New Generation i30 is manufactured as one single component. Previously, there were five combined components. The completely new technology reduces weight by 4.1 kg and increases rigidity and impact energy absorption.

Around the interior of the New Generation i30, a total of seven airbags are installed, including a knee airbag for the driver. Beside the six standard airbags (2 front airbags, two side airbags to curtain airbags from first to second row protecting both driver and passengers), the knee airbag is an additional safety feature for the driver in the event of a front collision.

  • New coherent and timeless design featuring the newly developed Cascading front grille

September 7, 2016 – The New Generation Hyundai i30 is the DNA car for Hyundai Motor representing the core of the brand. The New Generation i30 is Hyundai Motor’s answer to changing contemporary values and customer preferences toward technology driven solutions, individuality in style and flexibility.

The New Generation i30 delivers great value to single people, families, young and old. It is a smart and rewarding choice for those seeking an appealing design, an efficient and dynamic ride and a comprehensive safety package.

“We have listened closely to customer needs, redefining our offer to create a car for everyone. The New Generation i30 is our DNA car in Europe: accessible, appealing in design with innovative technology and great to drive,” comments Jochen Sengpiehl, Vice President Marketing at Hyundai Motor Europe. “With up-to-date infotainment and connectivity features, we offer everything that digital natives and today’s customers expect.”

The New Generation i30 democratises technology with connectivity features such as Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and wireless charging to enhance smartphone operation and functionality while driving. Latest active safety features such as Autonomous Emergency Braking, Smart Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist System, Driver Attention Alert and Blind Spot Detection increase passenger comfort to enjoy the ride with the New Generation i30 even more.

With design being the No. 1 buying reason for Hyundai customers, the New Generation i30 further evolves Hyundai’s design language with precise and tensed lines, refined rich surfaces and a sculpted body to create a timeless and confident appearance.

“Our designers are driven by passion and enthusiasm bringing pride and joy to Hyundai owners. You see and feel this new spirit in the New Generation i30 – it is a proud statement,” explains Peter Schreyer, President and Chief Design Officer at Hyundai Motor Group. “With the New Generation i30 we are introducing our newly developed front grille: we call it the Cascading Grille. It will become the new identity of Hyundai.”

The development engineers of Hyundai Motor Europe’s Technical Centre in Germany enhanced the driving dynamics of the New Generation i30 in a rigorous testing programme throughout Europe and on the famous Nürburgring Nordschleife. The highly rigid and light body with 53 % Advanced High Strength Steel delivers the base for good ride and handling characteristics and combined with a 10 % more direct steering and a newly developed chassis the driver can enjoy dynamic driving abilities without compromising high levels of comfort.

The powertrain line-up consists of downsized turbocharged engines to enhance efficiency and responsiveness. Customers can choose from 1.4 T-GDI, 1.6 T-GDI and 1.6 U2 e-VGT in Korea, while three petrol engines and one 1.6-litre turbo diesel engine with three outputs are offered in Europe.

A Family of Cars

The New Generation i30 is more than just one model. It will become a family of unique products united by a timeless and balanced design coherent for every body type. The family offers the right car for everyone - for the ones looking for elegance or the ones looking for exhilaration. The New Generation i30 family will feature the first high performance model under Hyundai Motor’s N brand going into production in 2017.

The European Success Story: Hyundai Motor’s DNA car for Europe

Designed in Hyundai Motor Europe’s Technical Centre in Rüsselsheim, produced in Nošovice, Czech Republic, and tested on the Nürburgring, the third generation i30 is built on the infrastructure that Hyundai Motor has developed over the last 25 years in Europe. It aims to continue the success of the two previous generations of i30 that have sold more than 800,000 cars in Europe since 2008.

“The New Generation i30 is the most important car for Hyundai in Europe, supporting our objective to become the number one Asian automotive brand,” says Thomas Schmid, Chief Operating Officer of Hyundai Motor Europe. “With the New Generation i30 we want to continue our success story and achieve further organic growth in the years to come.”

  • The first Genesis dedicated brand space opens in Korea
  • The space is designed to stimulate customers’ curiosity about the brand
  • Genesis will continue to open various types of brand spaces in other major cities

 

September 5, 2016 – Genesis, the luxury automotive brand, will open its first dedicated brand space inside a newly built cultural complex ‘Starfield’ in Hanam, 30km east of Seoul on September 9. The Genesis Studio embodies the brand directions of Genesis and its core characteristics. Being located in the high traffic area, the space is expected to attract lots of visitors, evoking their curiosity around the brand.

“We are very excited to open the Genesis brand’s first dedicated brand space, Genesis Studio. Visitors can easily drop by the Studio, and get a chance to know about Genesis. This space, located in a busy area, will serve to introduce our brand, and to raise visitors’ curiosity around it. We have also developed diverse concepts of brand spaces that fit for different objectives, so you will see more exciting brand spaces to come in the near future,” said Manfred Fitzgerald, Head of the Genesis brand.

As a design-focused brand, Genesis focuses on making the space embrace the brand’s unique design directions. Located on the second floor of the complex, the Genesis Studio will host the range-topping G90 limousine, G80, and G80 Sport. In particular, visitors can have an opportunity to experience the G80 Sport ahead of its official launch scheduled later this year in Korea.

Visitors will also experience the luxury and attention to detail of the materials and technologies through hands-on exhibits. For example, the doors of the G80 and G90 are displayed in Genesis Studio in all available combinations of exquisite exterior colors and artisan interior materials.

Moreover, the Genesis Studio provides a one-stop, stress-free customer experience where brand experience, test drives, purchases and consultation are conveniently offered to each customer. Genesis experts will deliver interesting stories and values behind the Genesis brand along with detailed information on Genesis vehicles. Visitors can also experience the comfortable yet dynamic driving performance of the Genesis range by test driving the vehicles, even at high speeds, on a range of specially-planned routes.

Starting from Genesis Studio in Hanam, Genesis plans to open diverse concepts of brand spaces in major markets. As the first dedicated brand space for Genesis, the site in Hanam will inspire other Genesis brand spaces around the world.

Following the flagship G90 and G80, its variant G80 Sport, which was unveiled at the 2016 Busan International Motor Show in early June, will start selling in Korea later this year. With the launch of G70 scheduled next year, the Genesis brand’s fascinating product line-up will keep expanding.
