CREATING A GREENER
WORLD WITH BLUEDRIVE

The strategy focuses on improving fuel efficiency and
driving the expansion of the green vehicle market.

BLUEDRIVE is
the philosophy of
Hyundai Motor to

lead the pollution-free
mobility era by improving
fuel efficiency and seeking
new energy possibilities.

We want to free people from environmental responsibilities and stress about fuel efficiency. We hope to pass on a beautiful environment for the next generation to breathe in pure air and enjoy driving cars without having to worry about fuel efficiency and pollution. We want to realize that dream by connecting our technology to an eco-friendly future. Our cars with high performance that consume less energy and smart eco-friendly technology that enhance fuel-efficiency provide effortless and comfortable driving. Likewise, we will enrich people's lives.

Challenge for the new
possibilities of the future by
seeking the various energy
source

People talks about the innovation of the eco technology, questioning new energy source and wants to enjoy advanced technology. The future eco mobility that we think starts from offering the various technology based on various people's needs.
Our creative perspective toward eco mobility, from pure and infinite Hydrogen, electricity and to the hybrid of energy source, opens the new possibilities in future mobility.

We provide higher efficiency by
securing highest levels of
fuel milage.

People talk about the evolution of eco-friendly technology, seeking higher efficiency, better performance through continuous technological development. We apply advanced technologies in all our models and pursue technological evolution of effiency and performance.
Through research on not only combustion engines but also on design and materials, we strive to improve effiency in all areas related to fuel milage. No matter what model people choose according to their lifestyles and tastes, this experience does not change.

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 a number of 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.

HYBRID
ELECTRIC VEHICLE

HEV

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 achieve 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

PHEV

Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) is an advanced hybrid vehicle with extended battery life and greater energy density for a 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

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

FUEL CELL
ELECTRIC VEHICLE

FCEV

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 world’s first mass-produced fuel-cell vehicles, Hyundai continues to lead the future of sustainable motoring technology.
