Hyundai Motor announced its plan to introduce a solar power charging system that can be applied to specific models of the Hyundai range, and these solar panels will be installed on the surface of the vehicle and hood to compensate consumption in hybrid and electric vehicles with the aim of supplying more energy and raising efficiency Fuel consumption and mileage rate per shipment.


This technology is developed to support the main power source of the car and increase the mileage of the vehicle with the commitment to reduce the carbon footprint at the same time, and this technology can charge car batteries whether electric or hybrid as well as fuel engines to improve the efficiency Fuel dramatically.


The Hyundai Group is developing three types of solar charging systems: The Silconi Solar roof system, the semi-transparent solar roof system and the lightweight solar cover system, which is placed on the entire body of the vehicle.


The first type, which is applied to hybrid vehicles and consists of silicon solar panels and is shown on the roof of the vehicle, can enhance their capabilities, charging up to 30% to 60% of the battery per day, depending on the ambient weather conditions. The second system will support fuel cars, for the first time in the world, equipped with power transmission plates, and give the driver a sense of spaciousness and can be installed on the panoramic roof openings.

The application of solar charging systems to fuel powered vehicles will contribute to increasing automobile exports by enabling them to take into account the standards and rates of automotive carbon emissions set by international standards.

The third eco-friendly car system will be allocated and is still under study, which will increase the amount of energy generated by the maximum by installing solar panels on both the hood and the roof.


The solar charging system consists of photo-voltaic panels, a control device, plus a battery that is shipped when the solar panel converts light into electric power.


The Hyundai Group will implement the first system of this technology after the end of 2019 to help find ways to strengthen adherence to international standards and controls aimed at raising fuel efficiency in vehicles and reducing their carbon footprint.
