In 2016, Saudi Arabia established the “Saudi Vision 2030” strategy to transition from relying on oil exports and promoting economic diversification through strategic investments in key sectors. As part of this strategy, the country announced the “Saudi Green Initiative” in 2021, demonstrating its commitment to exploring cutting-edge technologies and innovations to achieve the net zero carbon emission goal by 2060.


Hyundai Motor Group (the Group) has consistently been at the forefront of driving the energy transition in Saudi Arabia. Their initiatives began with successfully exporting two ELEC CITY Fuel Cell buses to Saudi Arabia in 2020. The Group expanded its reach in the country by exporting the XCIENT Fuel Cell heavy duty truck in 2021.

These endeavors underpin the Group’s ongoing dedication to pioneering the adoption of clean and efficient energy technologies worldwide.
