Hyundai is opening a technology research center in Germany aimed at advancing its future European capabilities focused on safety and convenience features for its products.

Ground has been broken on the Hyundai Motor Europe Technical Center which is to become the automaker’s R&D hub on the continent.

Its focus is on battery-electric vehicle development tailored to meet the preferences of European customers. The labs also will target new developments in advanced driver-assistance systems and infotainment functions.

Planned facilities include the group’s largest 4W NVH Dyno, capable of measuring a complete vehicle lineup in one platform, along with two Chassis Dynos and a Powertrain Dyno, enhancing testing capabilities.

In addition to existing office and research space, the new facility will aim to offer more job opportunities for professionals across various roles in the automotive sector. The automaker says it is actively seeking talented individuals who share a passion for innovation and sustainability.

Located in Germany’s Rhine-Main metropolitan region, the center is planned to be fully functioning by 2025. With 82,020 sq.-ft. (7,620 sq.-m) of floor space, the new building will more than double the center’s office and research space. It also will integrate energy-efficient designs and advanced renewable energy systems in a bid to reduce its carbon footprint and promote zero-emission solutions.
