Hyundai Rotem Company, the group's pioneer for hydrogen society with hydrogen mobility solutions for rails and production infrastructure building, highlights its strong commitment to make clean energy more accessible by displaying the 'Hydrogen Fuel Cell Tram' (small scale model). The hydrogen tram does not emit pollutants other than water and not require electric power supply facilities, while producing enough clean air for 170 adults for every hour when it runs. Hyundai Rotem Company also introduced trains (small scale model) for Singapore's seventh MRT line, the Jurong Region Line, which will have a high energy efficiency with the use of regenerative energy and will be serving both existing and future developments in the western part of Singapore.
And Motional also showcases its autonomous driving technologies by displaying its first commercial autonomous vehicle 'all-electric IONIQ5-based Robotaxi'. The Robotaxi represents the convergence of the two most transformative technologies in mobility: electrification and autonomy. The fusion of these technologies can make transportation smarter, safer, and more sustainable in the future city life.
In addition, Visitors can better understand HMGICS' unique innovations to create an advanced mobility ecosystem that will enrich and revitalise city living with Singapore through advanced technological innovations such as automated and intelligent cell-based production system and customer-centered mobility lifestyle. Visitors can also experience Hyundai Rotem Company's state-of-the-art innovations to revolutionize the mobility landscape and bring the closer to the goal of an eco-friendly society.
