Setting up shop at the circuit
The Koreans are invading Germany! Hyundai is undertaking final preparations ahead of moving into its new vehicle test centre at the iconic Nürburgring track in Germany.
The purpose-built facility will be a permanent base at the track for Hyundai, providing a dedicated resource for evaluating its vehicles on what is widely recognised as the toughest circuit of its kind in the world.
Due for completion by August, the new test centre has been designed specifically to meet Hyundai’s needs. Covering four floors and 3 622 m2, it will include new workshops, office space and a VIP hospitality area.
Allan Rushforth, senior vice president and COO of Hyundai Motor Europe, says: “Quality is one of Hyundai’s core values and it is a key aspect of achieving customer satisfaction. The Nürburgring test centre is the ultimate location to test vehicle durability, and we’re able to apply what we learn there to all of our vehicle development projects.”
He adds: “Our new facility will increase our testing capacity and bring direct benefits to our customers in terms of vehicle quality and performance.”
