Hyundai Mobis, a renowned player in the global automotive sector, recently introduced “MOBION,” an electric vehicle (EV) featuring advanced ‘e-Corner System’ technology, at CES 2024. This event marks the first public showcase of MOBION. The vehicle’s unique abilities were on full display, offering attendees and potential buyers a chance to witness its distinctive movement capabilities.
This introduction of MOBION by Hyundai Mobis is a significant step in the evolution of electric vehicles. The ‘e-Corner System’ integrated into MOBION is what sets it apart. This technology redefines the way vehicles move, breaking free from conventional forward and backward motion. Now, with the ability to glide sideways or diagonally, MOBION offers an innovative solution to common urban driving challenges, like tight parking spots or navigating crowded streets.
The vehicle is equipped with two electric motors, providing a total of 448 kW and 740 N⋅m of torque. However, Hyundai equipped the Ioniq 5 N with an N Grin Boost mode, allowing a maximum output of 478 kW and 770 N⋅m of torque being released for 10 seconds. Hyundai claimed a 0–100 km/h acceleration figure of 3.5 seconds, or 3.4 seconds with the N Grin Boost mode activated. The lithium-ion battery for this variant is also extended to 84 kWh.
At CES 2024, the MOBION turned heads with its demonstration. Visitors experienced something quite unique – a vehicle executing movements that seemed almost unthinkable until now. The ability of MOBION to pivot on the spot is particularly noteworthy. This feature could revolutionize urban mobility, making it easier for drivers to manage in densely populated city environments.
