Hyundai Mobis, Hyundai Motor Group’s (HMG) main chassis and cockpit systems and modules affiliate, has opened a new R&D facility dedicated to development of core electric vehicle (EV) drivetrain components.
The newly established Hyundai Mobis Electrification Research Center is within HMG’s main R&D complex in Uiwang in Gyeonggi Province.
The nine floor building, with four underground floors will focus on research and development, testing, performance evaluation and quality analysis of core electrification components. It will work closely with HMG and support the company’s growing global network of EV drivetrain plants.
The new centre consolidates at a single site Hyundai Mobis’ main electrification R&D operations which were previously dispersed at various locations including the Mabuk R&D Center in Yongin, and in Uiwang and Seosan. It will help improve the company’s operational efficiency in this increasingly important segment of the automotive industry.
The Mabuk R&D Centre will continue to lead the development of automotive systems such as autonomous driving, connectivity and chassis safety, while the company will continue to operate the Seosan Proving Ground where the company’s R&D achievements are applied to vehicles to assess performance and reliability.
At the inauguration ceremony, Hyundai Mobis’ newly appointed president, Lee Gyu Suk, said the centre was a “strategic hub for next generation electrification technology, equipped with an optimal research environment”.
