Engineered for peace of mind.
Hyundai is on a mission to make driving as safe as possible. That’s why our entire range of cars includes best-in-class safety features to protect all passengers.
Technology you won't see. Safety you will notice.
To us, creating comprehensive safety means watching out for you, protecting you in case of accidents, and constantly looking for even better ways of doing just that.
Low centre of gravity.
Car batteries are not only well-encapsulated; in all Hyundai models, they are located in the vehicle floor and specially protected by design. A welcome side-effect of this is that because the vehicle’s centre of gravity is very low, it is less likely to roll over than a conventional car.
Automatic battery cut-off.
Electric cars must be “intrinsically safe”. This means that the power flow of the battery is cut-off as soon as a defect is detected. In case of an accident, the battery is automatically disconnected from the other high-voltage components and cables within milliseconds. The 12-volt electrical system, however, continues to operate and supply the hazard warning lights, for example. This safety measure alone makes a sudden fire highly unlikely.
No flammable fuel.
While liquid fuel spilling from a petrol or diesel car is a fire hazard, electric car batteries are generally slow-burning and allow ample time to evacuate from a crash site.
