Hyundai Motor Group has come up with a whole new invention which not only improves the performance of their vehicles but is also eco-friendly or so it seems. The Hyundai Motor Group released an official statement on Wednesday stating that their team has been successfully able to develop a new engine technology which enhances the vehicle performance and fuel efficiency and reduces gas emissions.

With the rapidly increasing climate change crisis, every other company is looking for ways to reduce gas emissions so as to help the environment, and if this venture of Hyundai is successful, it would be a step forward to tackle the climate crisis.

Hyundai first plans to apply its own continuously variable valve duration (CVVD) system in its 1.6-liter turbo GDi engine. This GDi engine will later be installed in the Hyundai Sonata Turbo sedan which is yet to launch sometime later this year.

We will apply the more fuel-efficient and less-emitting CVVD technology in minicars, compact cars, midsize sedans, and sport utility vehicles – Ha Kyoung-pyo, a research fellow of the Gasoline Engine Research Lab 2, Hyundai

Hyundai’s vision is certainly worthy of applauds, and if they are successful in incorporating the CVVD technology with the upcoming Sonata sedan, Hyundai will be the first carmaker in the world to apply the eco-friendly technology to a mass-production model. The CVVD system is both practical and efficient in terms of performance also. A researcher explained how the system helps a motor engine to function more efficiently.

The CVVD technology is capable of flexibly controlling the valve duration time either to enhance fuel-efficiency or improve driving performance, which has been regarded as contradictory – Ha Kyoung-pyo, a research fellow of the Gasoline Engine Research Lab 2, Hyundai

Hyundai CVVD tech is a fuel-efficient engine apparently will help the driving performance and fuel efficiency to increase by 4% and 5% respectively. At the same time, the gas emission is expected to drop by 12% when compared to the continuously variable valve timing (CVVT) system.
