Self-Charging EVs Top Future Mobility Wish List, Hyundai Study Finds

Hyundai Motor Company has revealed results from a survey demonstrating that self-charging electric cars, flying cars and public transport to space are at the top of the future mobility wish list for British children aged 6–10.

According to Hyundai’s poll of 1,000 children aged 6–10, 72 percent of British youngsters want self-charging electric cars to be invented, while just over half would like a flying car (51 percent).

In addition, almost two in 10 (17 percent) of the surveyed children want to go to space via public transport.

When asked about other inventions they would like to see, Hyundai reports that the children mentioned teleportation, flying school buses and robots.

According to the poll, 65 percent of children think technology can make the world a better place.

This outlook aligns with Hyundai’s research of British adults, which demonstrated that 62 percent of Brits recognise the role technology has played in their personal mobility.

Echoing the younger respondents, when asked about the technology they were most excited about, the adults reported that robots, flying and autonomous cars and renewables were areas of future interest.

Hyundai’s research also showed that a number of adults were keen for mobility to become more sustainable, as 38 percent said they felt technology should be developed to improve transport’s environmental credentials.

Ashley Andrew, Managing Director Hyundai Motor UK said:

“It’s clear from our research that society is eager to embrace technology on a range of levels such as helping efforts to clean up the environment and offer clean mobility solutions, ultimately driving progress in the way we travel. Many of us are also intrigued by the potential capacities of robotics, and how this will determine the future of technology.”

These studies were commissioned by Hyundai to understand how adults and children perceive future mobility solutions such as electric cars and flying taxis.

Although several companies, including Hyundai are preparing to deploy autonomous flying taxis, more than a third of adult survey respondents imagined that such vehicles wouldn’t be available for at least another 20 years.
