Global automaker, Hyundai Motor Company has said it is committed to providing smart mobility solutions through new technologies.

- Ford, Lyft will partner to deploy self-driving cars
However, the automaker said a lot of “extensive work and research” needs to be undertaken for the auto enthusiasts to experience the “autonomous vehicles” also known as driverless or self-driving cars.
Vice President, Head of Middle East & Africa Operation at Hyundai Motor Company, Bang Sun Jeong, in a statement on Thursday stressed that autonomous vehicles “can pave the way for reducing traffic while shared transport will make commuting even more affordable.”
“Electric vehicles, which are already widely driven worldwide, are an obvious choice for improving local air quality and thus drastically cutting pollution,” it said.
“Technology has significantly transformed the automotive industry so much that the way we travel in the future will not be the same as how it is today.”
He however pointed out that a lot of extensive work and research still needs to be undertaken “before we are able to fully experience autonomous vehicles and shared mobility on a daily basis.”
He said, “It is clear that delivering vehicles for the future will not just be about design and luxury.
“Consumers will want vehicles that are intelligent and connected so that travelling becomes simpler and safer.”
