PORTABLE MOBILITY

Hyundai Motor launched an innovative portable mobility concept – IONIQ Scooter. The lightweight, electrically-powered scooter is stored in the front door of the IONIQ Electric and allows customers to continue easily to their final destination.

Enabling drivers to continue their journey after parking or helping them to travel to public transit stations, the IONIQ Scooter is an innovation from Hyundai Motor’s long-term research and development program, Project IONIQ. The compact scooter is charged while it sits conveniently inside the front door of the IONIQ Electric. The accessibility of the scooter is highlighted by the fact it is stored in the IONIQ Electric’s front door rather than the trunk.

Users can fold and unfold the scooter with just one hand, and its lightweight construction enhances its portability. The scooter is equipped with front and rear lights to aid visibility, and an occupant sensor detects when the rider is safely aboard before riding mode is enabled. Acceleration is controlled by the rider scrolling up their thumb switch, while braking is achieved by pressing a pad over the scooter’s rear wheel or scrolling down thumb switch.

Working to redefine future mobility through innovation, Project IONIQ is a long-term research and development project that is designed to enhance the lives of Hyundai Motor customers. Through Project IONIQ, Hyundai Motor strives to deliver freedom in mobility through four key directions – freedom to effortlessly access mobility whenever and wherever; freedom to connect everyday life while on the move; freedom from accidents and inconveniences; and freedom from environmental pollution and energy exhaustion.

Project IONIQ focuses on three main areas of research, aiming to advance theoretical and practical understanding of future customer requirements. This includes predicting changes in future mobility and studying possible scenarios; developing new types of mobility according to changes in society and people’s lifestyles; and creating new service models and mobility experiences that extend the role and definition of cars. The first step of Project IONIQ saw Hyundai Motor introduce the new alternative-fuel IONIQ model, the world’s first car to offer a choice of three electrified powertrains. In the coming years, Hyundai Motor will develop a wealth of innovations through Project IONIQ, each of which takes an innovative approach to future mobility.

Established in 1967, Hyundai Motor Company is committed to becoming a lifetime partner in automobiles and beyond. The company leads the Hyundai Motor Group, an innovative business structure capable of circulating resources from molten iron to finished cars. Hyundai Motor has eight manufacturing bases and seven design & technical centers worldwide and in 2015 sold 4.96 million vehicles globally. With more than 110,000 employees worldwide, Hyundai Motor continues to enhance its product line-up with localized models and strives to strengthen its leadership in clean technology, starting with the world’s first mass-produced hydrogen-powered vehicle, Tucson Fuel Cell and IONIQ, the world’s first model with three electrified powertrains.
