Hyundai is at the forefront of electric vehicle tech, as evidenced by its latest smart features.
The latest function of its smartphone app allows EV owners to control performance settings via their phone. The app lets users tweak performance aspects like acceleration, deceleration, responsiveness, ignition, and maximum torque. It also lets users fine-tune energy-related settings such as the vehicle’s climate control energy use and regenerative braking capacity.
This added tool will let Hyundai drivers optimize performance based on trip length and how much energy they’ll need along a certain route. Per The News Wheel, the brand also plans to enhance the tool so it provides the user with recommended settings for certain terrain and weather conditions.
Hyundai will use blockchain technology to encrypt sensitive information. Drivers will have the freedom to create custom profiles and save their preferences to a server and access them in different Hyundai vehicles without worrying about cybersecurity breaches.
This new Hyundai tech comes as no surprise considering the brand’s focus on progressive technologies and enhancing its EV models. It hopes to deploy 23 electric models by 2025.
