SEOUL, South Korea and BEIJING, Sept. 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Today at the 16th Beijing International Automotive Exhibition (Auto China 2020), Beijing Hyundai Motor Company shares its game-changing electrification vision that is driving its transformation into a Smart Mobility Solution Provider.

Albert Biermann, President and Head of R&D Division of Hyundai Motor Group, announced Hyundai Motor Group's electrification vision through a virtual presentation. "It is our responsibility to save the planet, so that future generations can thrive in a clean environment," said President Biermann. "To achieve the goal of clean mobility, Hyundai has secured the capacity to develop all types of eco-friendly vehicles, including hybrid, plug-in hybrid, battery electric and fuel cell electric vehicles using Hyundai's own technologies."
Hyundai's booth at the motor show also features its Prophecy concept EV that captures the brand's electrification direction, which makes its China debut at the Beijing Motor Show. Hyundai is also promoting its recently launched IONIQ dedicated EV lineup brand that is central to its 'Strategy 2025' electrification roadmap.
