The technology first debuted at CES 2018, following its most recent appearance at CES 2021
Hyundai’s Mobis division has once again showcased its innovative e-Corner (crab walking) technology at the 2023 Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
First shown at CES 2018, the technology has now been incorporated into an Ioniq 5 EV and enables ‘crab walking’ movements allowing cars to move diagonally and rotate on the spot. This makes parallel parking and turning much easier than traditional vehicles.
Unlike a traditional suspension system, e-Corner technology allows the car’s wheels to turn in ways that would otherwise be impossible.
This enables drivers to complete maneuvers that would be difficult or impossible with traditional vehicles.
According to Hyundai Mobis, the technology is expected to go on sale in 2025, and it’s possible that e-Corner units will start appearing in production vehicles in the coming years.
The company plans to start production in 2025, and other car manufacturers may also incorporate this technology into their vehicles, and Mobis produces parts for other companies as well as Hyundai.
This e-Corner technology represents a major development in the automotive industry and will change the way we drive and handle our cars.
It offers a new level of control and precision, making driving more efficient and safer. Hyundai is pushing the boundaries of what is possible with electric vehicles and positioning itself as a leader in automotive innovation.
