Hyundai missed its fuel-cell target massively, but it’s not giving up

Electric and hybrid cars may be most peoples' first thought when it comes to green travel, but Hyundai isn't letting underwhelming sales sour it on fuel-cells. After a year of sales, the company has sold or leased a little more than a quarter of the hydrogen-powered Tucson EV it hoped to, with just 273 cars reaching drivers since production began in 2013.

Hyundai patent outlines speed bump detection system

I'd wager at one time or another most of us have seen cars that have been customized by their owners or are so low from the factory that speed bumps can be a big issue.

Hyundai helps astronaut’s daughter send a message that could be seen from space

Hyundai has helped a 13-year-old girl named Stephanie send a message to her father. The reason sending a message is so hard is that the girl's father is an astronaut aboard the ISS.

Hyundai Genesis cars recalled over potential water leak

Hyundai Genesis cars recalled over potential water leak

Hyundai is back with another auto recall, this one due to a possible water leak and the electrical problems it could cause. This follows the auto maker's Hyundai Elantra recall from earlier this week, which was made due to problems with the electric power steering (it might stop working). This new problem, which affects some of its newest Genesis vehicles, is arguably less serious than the sudden loss of power steering, but it could cause problems with shifting.

Hyundai has introduced its 2016 Sonata Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle, marking the maker's first foray into the plug-in hybrid EV market.
