Last month, Hyundai Motor Group announced its new Smart Air Purification system, which could be implemented in future Hyundai and Kia models, to deliver truly purified air to passengers on the go. The system is designed to monitor the interior air quality of a vehicle and actively filter the air until it is completely pure. The automated monitoring system will continually check the quality of the air until it achieves “Excellent” status.
The system not only purifies air while drivers travel but also removes fine particulates before the driver and passengers even enter the car, so they enter to enjoy an already clean breathing experience. This technology is crucial to keeping us healthy, as particulates, especially in areas with heavy traffic, can be detrimental when breathed in regularly.
Focus On Comfort
“Enabling our customers to breathe the cleanest air, even in highly-polluted areas, is a demonstration of how Hyundai Motor Group strives to care for its customers,” explained YongSuk Shin, head of FR Interior & Exterior System Engineering Design Team. “This innovation is just one of many projects we are working on to provide our customers with the best in-car environments.”
This system will be used in conjunction with high-performance air filters, which generally collect between 94 percent and 99 percent of fine particulates. We look forward to seeing this technology improve our driving experiences in future Hyundai models. When the future arrives, you’ll be able to experience it right here at Gossett Hyundai South.
