Hyundai Motor and its affiliate Kia Motors are preparing to launch a solar charging technology for some Hyundai vehicles to fulfill global emission regulation targets, the South Korean automakers stated.
Solar panels are going to be mounted on the roof or hood of the vehicles, the companies stated.
The companies are introducing three solar charging systems for several types of vehicles, consisting of hybrid and battery electric.
Several countries have in these years set ambitious goals to curb carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxide emissions, bringing automakers and truckmakers under greater scrutiny.
Hyundai is going to introduce the first generation of the technology for its vehicles after 2019.
