What is Hyundai Clean Air?
Hyundai Clean Air technology is an in-car ionization system that helps to purify the air flowing through a vehicle’s climate control system. It works by electrically charging the air with negative ions, which attach to dust, pollen, bacteria, and other contaminates. These negatively charged particulates then attach themselves to a vehicle’s interior air filter, helping to purify the air that flows into the cabin.
Hyundai has offered Clean Air ionization for years. More recently, Hyundai introduced an intelligent Smart Air Purification system that monitors interior air quality to filter the air inside a car automatically. The system constantly monitors the car’s air quality, activating the purification function if the air quality decreases below a pre-defined level.
Still, there is always room for improvement, and what Hyundai Clean Air ionization does not currently address is mold that can build up in the climate system and filtration of fine dust particles. To combat those problems, Hyundai has just announced two new technologies designed to improve the quality of air in its vehicles, and one new feature intended to create a more pleasant indoor environment for drivers and passengers alike.
The new Clean Air technologies are After-Blow, Fine Dust Indicator, and Multi-Air Mode. They will be introduced initially on select Hyundai Motor Group models in Korea and expand to upcoming Hyundai, Kia, and Genesis vehicles worldwide in the future.
