Hyundai Intros Smartphone-Based Vehicle Performance Controls

The Hyundai Motor Group has developed a system for pairing a smartphone with its electric vehicles so that the car’s performance can be controlled via the phone.

The feature allows drivers to adjust seven major performance features and is planned to be included in future Hyundai and Kia vehicles.

“Drivers can use this technology to adjust seven performance features including the maximum torque output of the motor, ignition, acceleration and deceleration abilities, regenerative braking capacity, maximum speed limit, responsiveness and energy use on climate control, Hyundai stated in the product announcement.

The application analyzes the remaining distance and electric energy requirements to provide optimized settings for a designated destination.

Hyundai plans to deploy 44 eco-friendly models by 2025, including 23 electric vehicles,

“We see the potential of technologies and services inherent in non-combustion vehicles,” stated research fellow JeongSoo Eo from Hyundai Motor Group. “By developing paradigm-shifting mobility technology like this one, we will continue to strive to improve user experience for electric vehicles customized to individual preferences.”
