Hyundai recently developed a high-end EV charging system concept that can pair with autonomous vehicle technology. This system allows you to not only save money on fuel, but it also works to make driving more convenient. With features like the Automated Valet Parking System (AVPS), you can squeeze into even the tightest spots.
According to Hyundai, users of the future will be able to essentially pair their vehicle with a smartphone app and command it to charge. Then, the system will drive itself to a vacant wireless charging system. Once it finishes charging, it will move to another vacant spot and return to the driver when called. In short, you won’t have to worry about parking and charging again.
“The system will offer a convenience to drivers who are faced with an overcrowding of both parking and charging locations as electric vehicle numbers grow steadily. It relocates fully charged vehicles from charging stations and allow other awaiting electric vehicles to charge,” reads the Hyundai press release.
While just a concept vehicle Hyundai has recently introduced alongside Kia, the new AVPS system is just one of many things that sets this brand apart. Whether you want the latest high-tech gadgets or you’d simply like to decrease your carbon footprint, Hyundai has everything you could ever want.

It’s no surprise that the crossover segment has been at the top of the auto industry for a few years now, with solo drivers and families alike flocking to the class for its seamless combination of capability, reliability, and style. And with more and more effort going into technological innovations, a new electric crossover was bound to make its way to the market eventually. Hyundai recently announced plans to bring the Kona Electric, an EV variant of the brand’s popular Kona nameplate, to Europe.
Electric crossovers and SUVs are on the itinerary for several automakers, though most brands are projecting the release of said vehicles to fall somewhere between 2020 and 2025. But Hyundai is ahead of the curve – with the Hyundai Kona Electric hitting European roads soon, it’s only a matter of time until the EV model makes its way to U.S. shores, as well as around the rest of the globe.
Because the Hyundai Kona is already a compact crossover, many of its fans are already drivers looking for the spaciousness and versatility of an SUV combined with the fuel economy of the compact class. With a new electric crossover on the way, Hyundai is giving drivers the option of an even more fuel-efficient crossover.

Over the years, as in-vehicle safety tech becomes more advanced and innovative, the IIHS has raised their standards, making it harder for automobiles to achieve the coveted Top Safety Pick+ rating.
In order to obtain it, vehicles have to score top marks in every crash test category while having available crash avoidance technology and good quality headlights. For the 2018 model year, the Hyundai Sonata managed to pass the IIHS tests with flying colors and attain the Top Safety Pick+ title.
The IIHS has five different crashworthiness tests: small front overlap, moderate front overlap, side impact, roof strength, and head restraints. The 2018 Hyundai Sonata earned a top rating of “good” on every test.
The Sonata also was also equipped with the optional automatic emergency braking system and high-quality headlights. This is the second time the Hyundai Sonata has managed to grab the Top Safety Pick+ rating, following the 2016 model year.
The 2018 Hyundai Sonata’s Top Safety Pick+ safety rating makes it a great choice for a family sedan. If you’re interested, stop by Tipton Hyundai for an up close and personal look at the Hyundai Sonata and its new, top-of-the-line safety technology.
