Every motor show is filled with creative innovations, dreams, and aspirations from car manufacturers around the globe. The 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show is no different as there have been many interesting projects and concepts including the new Hyundai Electric Race Car.
Hyundai is leading the tech news once again as they unwrap their new electric scooter prototype. This comes after Hyundai first presented a concept at CES in 2017 and adds further impetus to last-mile mobility, something that has become rather mainstream in America, Europe and China.

Hyundai has thrown its technological and financial weight behind IONITY in Europe. It is now a full partner in this game-changing initiative with BMW, Daimler, Ford and Porsche (Volkswagen Group).
What is IONITY? Let me demonstrate with an experience we had a few years ago.
Clean air in your car is not to be sneezed at. But how do you know how clean it is and what can you do about it if it is not?
Good news is hard to come by these days but perhaps this is a great place to start. Hyundai Automotive South Africa has announced that the new Hyundai Venue will be available in South Africa late 2019.
First introduced at the New York Motor Show by the Hyundai Motor Company, this brand new Hyundai Venue will join the line-up already consisting of top quality cars such as the Kona, Creta, Tucson and Santa Fe.
Hyundai’s 2020 Sonata Hybrid gives you the best of both worlds, with a cherry on top. It shares the sensational styling of the conventional sedan recently launched in New York. It gives you the fuel economy of a hybrid. And six hours in the sun will fully charge the battery.
The Hyundai Tucson Sport needs no introduction as it has certainly made a mark. However, they only sold 516 of the previous model which means the new Hyundai Tucson Sport has to be even better (and it is). Not only does the new Hyundai Tucson range in South Africa feature new sporting design changes but it also has improved performance and added diesel power.
Car accidents happen and they are nasty to the victims and often confusing to the responders. The lag between the accident and help arriving, the responders assessing the victims and then getting them to an emergency room can be critical.
Now imagine your car not only telling emergency services that you had an accident and where it happened but also telling them of your likely injuries and suggesting the best facility nearby to treat you.
The launch of the 2020 Hyundai Sonata at the New York Auto Show earlier this year underlined just what South African motorists are missing with this mid-sized sedan. Sadly the Sonata is no longer available here. This is why it’s sad.
