Hyundai opens new R&D facility

Hyundai R&D India

Over the past decade, Hyundai has moved steadily up the ladder of the worlds automakers and part of its success has come from better tailoring its cars to local needs. To help in that respect, the South Korean company has opened a network of technical centers in regions where it does business.

Last week, Hyundai opened its fourth R&D facility outside of Korea with the latest location in Hyderabad, India. The Indian center will focus on developing small cars and the home office has named it the Global Centre of Excellence for the segment.

The Hyderabad Center is starting off with 300 engineers and in addition to servicing local market products will also be providing support services to other locations in South Korea, Japan, Germany and the United States. The 300,000 square-foot facility took two years to build at a cost of $25 million USD.
