Hyundai Future Powertrain Strategy Announced

For decades now, a lot of the focus on what future vehicles will be like has concentrated on the way they might look. Nowadays though, the main focus is quite clearly on their powertrains as sustainability and emissions are now the overriding priority. It's therefore no surprise the Hyundai Motor Group decided to clearly outline its future powertrain development strategy at its International Powertrain Conference in Korea this week.

The two-day event saw more than 1,200 engineers and academics from some of the world's leading powertrain companies taking part, and it featured presentations looking at the grand main theme of "Knock the Limit of Powertrain Technologies: To Enhance Value for Customers."

Hyundai took the opportunity to showcase the first four engines and two transmissions from an upcoming lineup of what it describes as "Smart Stream" powertrains. The concept brings together a number of advanced technologies designed to help Hyundai meet its long-term global emissions goals.

Paddon reinstated to Hyundai team; 'can't wait' for Rally GB

After missing a World Rally Championship (WRC) round earlier this month, Hayden Paddon is back on board with Hyundai Motorsport, as the team fields a four-car entry in Wales Rally GB this week. Paddon and British co-driver Seb Marshall rejoin the team for the penultimate event in the 2017 WRC and the final round in Europe. They are among Hyundai's three, point-scoring teams, along with Belgian Thierry Neuville and Andreas Mikkelsen, of Norway.

Following a series of disappointing events, the team is focused on securing a strong result on the Welsh gravel roads, consequently leaving tarmac-specialist Spaniard Dani Sordo driving the fourth car but ineligible to score Manufacturer Championship points.

"Hopefully we can put together a good result and build up to a positive conclusion to what has been a tough season," Paddon said.

He has recently returned to Europe after a month-long break back in New Zealand, where he competed in the national championship Rally Coromandel and the Ashley Forest Rallysprint. Putting the disappointment of being dropped by Hyundai for the Spanish WRC round three weeks ago behind him, he is looking to end the 2017 season in competitive form.

"It's Rally GB week and I can't wait to get back in the car - [it] has felt like a long time. Naturally the goal is always for a good result, but more importantly this week is about enjoying the rally and driving," Paddon said on Facebook yesterday.

Hyundai announces future powertrain strategy

SEOUL, Oct 26 — For decades now, a lot of the focus on what future vehicles will be like has concentrated on the way they might look. Nowadays though, the main focus is quite clearly on their powertrains as sustainability and emissions are now the overriding priority. It's therefore no surprise the Hyundai Motor Group decided to clearly outline its future powertrain development strategy at its International Powertrain Conference in Korea this week.

The two-day event saw more than 1,200 engineers and academics from some of the world's leading powertrain companies taking part, and it featured presentations looking at the grand main theme of "Knock the Limit of Powertrain Technologies: To Enhance Value for Customers".

Hyundai took the opportunity to showcase the first four engines and two transmissions from an upcoming lineup of what it describes as "Smart Stream" powertrains. The concept brings together a number of advanced technologies designed to help Hyundai meet its long-term global emissions goals.

The company expressed its view at the conference that it believes the internal combustion engine will remain a key component in the market until 2025, and that's because plug-in and electric powertrains will need that long to gain wider acceptance and uptake.

The South Korean auto giant therefore plans to produce a larger proportion of electric, hydrogen fuel cell, and plug-in hybrid powertrains in the future, which will sit alongside extremely efficient Smart Stream combustion engines in the brand's model range.

The "Smart" in Smart Stream is defined as being smart in design, in control, and in operation, while "Stream" corresponds to the dynamic movement of mobility.

To our valued customers;

You might be hearing a lot about our products and, at times, we might also be filling your email box with special offers, but this message is not selling anything. We want only to tell you how much we appreciate the fact that you spend your hard earned money with our dealerships. It is a busy and tumultuous time in our country and sometimes we don't often enough simply say we appreciate you and thank you.

We also realize that there are times that you want to communicate with us and, although we do our best to respond promptly to messages, sometime our response might not be quite timely as either of us might wish. So, we have built a system through which we can communicate like we are doing right now. We can send messages to you that we think and hope, are pertinent and you can do the same with each and every one of us. We call it our Long autoWALL. You see, this is a community of all of us, you the customer and us the service provider and each of us have a profile through which we can communicate. So, check yours out, look it over and send a message to us. If you do not know your credentials, then contact us at lilly@longofchatt.com.

Also, through the same system, if you like, you can pay for your vehicle services online, prior to picking up your car. Once work is completed and your vehicle is ready, a detailed invoice will be sent to your computer or mobile device. We hope that this will be more convenient for you and will save you time. We use PayPal as the transaction facilitator simply because that is the safest payment system available and no, you do not have to have a PayPal account to use it. Just go ahead and use your credit card. And, even if you pay online, we hope that you still will take the time to say "Hello", have a hot cup of coffee and fresh baked cookie with us. You know that cold weather is on its way.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
