The South Korean automotive supplier announced the vehicle will be in the spotlight at the national auto show in Munich, Germany from Sept. 7 to 12 as part of a larger overall strategy in Europe.

“Hyundai Mobis is continuously expanding its electrification capabilities in Europe,” the company confirmed in a press release, “and has established new production lines for core electric vehicle parts.”

The all-electric four seater can be controlled by voice and gesture recognition through a central cockpit, or completely autonomously. And while passengers aren’t worried about driving, they can be entertained by 360-degree experience where all windows are capable of turning into interactive displays.

“The M.Vision X offers highly innovative technology solutions and a unique reinterpretation of the automotive interior,” the company added.

“This integrated centre cockpit communicates with passengers in a contact-free fashion using the gesture recognition functions. As a result, passengers can control all driving-related functions, e.g. the autonomous driving mode, AI speakers and infotainment.”

An important distinction for the vehicle is the lack of contact necessary with the actual interfaces to operate. In a world still navigating through the COVID-19 pandemic, the M.Vision X is taking all precautions into account with the touchless controls and a new interior sanitization feature.

“There is also a sterilization function that uses UV lighting to automatically sterilize the vehicle once the passengers get out of the car,” the company said. “This new technology is also a feature of M.Vision X.”

Along with the M.Vision X, Hyundai Mobis will also showcase a suite of technological enhancements at IAA, including specific details around the all-electric IONIQ 5.
