On June 13, Hyundai Motor Company and Kia Motors Corporation announced they have invested in Aurora Innovation Inc. to accelerate the development of autonomous vehicle technologies.
The move will strengthen the strategic partnership formed between the companies in 2018, under which Hyundai, Kia, and Aurora have been collaborating on self-driving technologies on Hyundai’s flagship fuel cell vehicle NEXO.
With the new investment, the companies will expand research into a wide range of models and optimize Hyundai and Kia autonomous vehicle platforms.
Integration of the Aurora Driver system, which is comprised of LiDAR, radar, cameras, and software modules, will enhance the ability of Hyundai and Kia vehicles to monitor, react, and adapt to different surroundings.
Hyundai Motor Group’s future mobility plans include commercialization of Level 4 autonomous vehicles by 2021 with the pilot launch of a fleet of autonomous robo-taxis in smart cities.

On June 11, Kia informed that the new Kia XCeed urban crossover will be available with Kia’s first fully-digital 12.3-inch Supervision driver instrument cluster when it is launched across Europe later this year.
With a high-resolution 1920x720-pixel display, the digital cluster replaces the conventional speedometer and tachometer dials found currently in the brand’s passenger cars. Its single, seamless display incorporates pin-sharp digital dials for vehicle and engine speeds, with a fast frame-rate enabling it to react quickly and smoothly to instructions and inputs from the driver.
The new Supervision instrument cluster is available as an option in the new Kia XCeed, depending on market and vehicle specification. It replaces the physical dials and 3.8-inch mono-LCD or 4.2-inch colour TFT LCD screens available with different specifications of vehicle.
In developing the digital instrument cluster, Kia is proofing its in-car technology against future technological developments.

On June 4, Kia Motors announced that ‘Seltos’ will be the name of its new global compact SUV.
The name of the Kia Seltos represents the brave and assertive spirit of Celtos, the legend and the son of Hercules in Greek mythology, and the ‘S’ in the vehicle’s adapted name implies speed and sportiness.
The Seltos has been created for the millennial generation, standing apart from its rivals with a combination of sophisticated, sporty design and the space and capabilities of a traditional SUV – all in a compact package.
The Kia Seltos will be revealed later this month, with sales in Korea and other regions to follow in the second half of 2019.
