Next-Gen Fuel Cell Coming for Hyundai in 2018

Friday, September 2nd, 2016

CWay Hyundai 6 shutterstock_325899980-1

For green drivers in northern California near CardinaleWay Hyundai, there is news to celebrate. According to folks at Hyundai headquarters, the manufacturer is looking to unveil next-gen fuel cell in models beginning in 2018.

Back in 2013, Hyundai took the lead as it became the first automaker to offer a mass-produced fuel cell vehicle when it brought out a special version of the 2013 Tucson crossover. Now, Hyundai is taking steps to assure it’s ready to take its fuel cell technology further by 2018.

That’s when Hyundai will unveil an all-new fuel cell vehicle. Details are sparse but based on comments from Hyundai’s leadership, the vehicle is expected to fall somewhere between an SUV and a CUV. CUV stands for crossover-utility vehicle. That generally refers to a utility vehicle that uses a unitized platform, more like a car, instead of traditional SUVs, which use classic body-on-frame construction more in line with a pickup truck.

This new vehicle will contain a smaller fuel cell but a larger battery, so the electric motor will boast a higher output but will actually be smaller than the one in the Tucson Fuel Cell. Because they’re smaller, Hyundai’s new fuel cells will use less platinum. They will be paired with a new electric motor that is more powerful and smaller. To date, Hyundai has produced under 1,000 copies of its fuel cell vehicle.

Headquartered in South Korea, this new fuel cell from Hyundai is scheduled to debut just in time for the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea. The Winter Olympics are offering a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and Hyundai is looking to take full advantage of the timing. Plans to market the new vehicle at the event are in development and Hyundai may be looking to introduce a fuel cell bus at the games.

We’ve got the right model in our showroom at CardinaleWay Hyundai. Drop in for a test drive with one of our amazing staff members today!

Three Problems Drivers Overlook That Can Ruin a Car

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

CWay Hyundai 5 shutterstock_137953622

Your owner’s manual lines out the manufacturer’s recommendation plan for your vehicle, but sometimes life gets in the way. Maybe it’s working long hours at the office that makes you shrug off some maintenance need. Maybe it’s a cost concern. Whatever the reason, here are three of the biggest problems drivers ignore that eventually lead to the death of their car. If you’ve got any maintenance issues, contact CardinaleWay Hyundai today to get your repairs done!

Don’t Ignore the Check Engine Light!

No matter when it might flash on to alert you of an impending issue, your Check Engine Light is basically the heartbeat of your car. Sure, it can elicit a groan when it comes on unexpectedly, but ignoring it will do nothing but harm to your vehicle. As hard as it can be to cram an unexpected service appointment into your schedule, you need to do just that. Just think, the longer you wait the more damage you could be doing to your car, which will in turn cause repair costs to increase. Taking a little time now could save you a lot of money in the future!

Ignoring TPMS Light/Not Checking Tire Pressure

If you just give your tires the eyeball test, they might look properly inflated. Then you pull out onto the highway and accelerate only to blow a tire or wind up with a flat within seconds. Don’t judge tire pressure by appearance. Even if your tires are properly inflated, even just one stutter over a pothole could put you below the recommended pressure.

If your vehicle is equipped with one, your TPMS light serves as a warning system letting you know right when one or more of your tires is deflated beyond what is considered safe by your car’s producer. If this light comes on while you are driving, pull over as soon as is safely possible and fill your tire with air..

Neglecting Fluid Checks or Skipping an Oil Change

There’s more than just motor oil and gasoline that keeps your car riding smooth! While motor oil and gasoline might indeed be the most critical fluids to monitor, items like brake fluid, engine coolant, transmission fluid and power steering fluid are all important.  Run low on one, and it could severely impact your driving experience. With newer vehicles, you may not need an oil change every 3,000…it could be double that for newer models. Oil changes are essential in ensuring the long engine life for your car and monitoring other fluids responsibly is also key to keeping your car road ready.

If you run into any of the issues listed above or any issues regarding your vehicle, the Service Department at CardinaleWay Hyundai is always prepared to get your car back on the road as quickly as possible!

Hyundai Expertly Integrating Bluetooth and Voice Command Technology

Monday, August 29th, 2016

CWay Hyundai 4 shutterstock_425968585

Imagine walking into your garage and settling into your automobile. Speak a simple command and the navigation system automatically turns on. Directions are generated at a moment’s notice. This is a reality not too far in the future for Hyundai.

Perhaps the most incredible thing will be that your car can speak and understand more languages than any person on the planet. It can differentiate between dialects and accents. After speaking one command, you’ll be on the road, headed to your destination. It will be that simple.

Automakers like Hyundai are intently focused on integrating voice command systems. Voice command is an expectation of the modern automobile consumer. Other voice-command related features, like driverless cars, are also connected to these developments.

As technology continues to evolve and integrations are sought for vehicular implementation, companies like Apple and Google are vying for their systems to be a part of the game. But this technology has to be perfect before it becomes available to the public. One voice command error in a car could be the difference between life and death. Manufacturers have a long hill to climb before releasing the function to the market.

Hyundai considers its automobile IT laboratory staffs as “special ops troops.” The research center was created by Hyundai to rapidly accelerate the company’s voice command tech as soon as possible. Hyundai’s lab have rolled out a voice command system that simplifies the entire process by addressing common issues involving accents and dialects while also looking to streamline the process from a series of individual commands into a one command that is understood completely with no errors.

Be sure to check out all the great Hyundai technology at CardinaleWay Hyundai in Corona!

Hyundai 2 Standards to Meet so Hyundai Dealerships Can Sell the Hyundai Equus

The new 2016 Hyundai Equus has done a great job on their recent transmission systems, or the drivetrain of the vehicle. Hyundai has always ensured that they offer the best kind of drive quality to any driver for the best price possible. The company has been constantly pursuing the dream to create the best drivetrain that would fit and compliment the vehicle with the body and curb weight of the car. The new 2016 Hyundai Equus seems to have found that perfect balance between the transmission system and the body of the vehicle.

The launch of the new and renewed fluidic design across all Hyundai vehicles has also created a need for the best developed transmission systems. The new 2016 Hyundai Equus has ensured that their vehicle does not offer luxury at the cost of power, and power at the cost of luxury. The Korean car maker has based their empirical knowledge of car making and offered two variants of the vehicle transmission.

One of the variants of the vehicle is an all-wheel drive that allows the driver the control and power distribution in the best way possible, while the other variant is a standard rear wheel drive that allows the best engine thrust to the vehicle. However, the comfort of the luxury sedan is not compromised for this additional power.

Hyundai’s Safety Systems

Friday, May 27th, 2016

why_hyundai_safety_features_r2

Hyundai prioritizes safety during vehicle development to ensure its passengers are well protected from risky situations and conditions. Hyundai has included numerous safety systems such as ABS, VDC, EBD, and AGCS, giving the company the highest safety ratings of any automaker in the world. The company has ensured it adheres to the safety regulations of every country where it sells its vehicles.

Assessing safety systems

The assessment of safety system performance is carried out twice to reinforce the efficiency of the system before putting it into production.

  • Computer simulation. During the initial development stage, the engineers use vehicle crash analysis to reach a safety objective and predict crash safety performance. Every possible collision and condition are created on a computer and simulated to adjudge the vehicle’s performance. By recreating the body structure of the car and its corresponding safety system, engineers  are able to assess the protection devices aptly and deliver specifications to improve safety performance.
  • Car crash test. After the simulation has been analyzed, an actual car crash test is set up. The vehicle is put through different crash situations from all sides and angles. This will ensure the validity of the safety system and the development of these safety technologies could proceed.

Hyundai cars are fitted with a Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system which consists of a radar sensor. The sensor perceives pileups or collisions ahead and sounds an alarm to alert the driver. Vibrations are sent through the seatbelt to enhance the warning system.
