Hyundai's second solution is PBV's electric multipurpose ground transportation. When developing the concept, the company's designers were inspired by the iconic cable car in San Francisco. The uniqueness of the PBV concept is that it can function as a mobile restaurant, hotel, first-aid post, as well as urban public and freight transport.

Thanks to the modular design, PBV can easily be transformed into a passenger or cargo version, and the interior of the concept can be personalized to suit individual needs. Equipped with artificial intelligence, PBV can plan a route, charge on the go from a mobile charger or from a solar panel located on the roof. The concept is also equipped with an innovative interior air purification system, an interactive screen on which weather data, news and other useful information are displayed online.

Hub Transport Station

The third mobile solution Hyundai introduced at CES 2020 was the Hub multifunctional transport station. It has a rooftop runway for the Hyundai S-A1 and a docking station for PBV. It can also be used in various ways, for example, for conferences or cultural events.

In the future, Hyundai plans to make intelligent mobility more affordable by deploying similar hubs in the cities of the future and creating a new mobility ecosystem.
