The article discusses the Hyundai Ioniq 5 with a unique feature – magic wheels that can turn sideways. This innovative design allows for various driving maneuvers, such as effortless parallel parking by sliding sideways into a spot, spinning around in a parking lot, and diagonal driving to avoid obstacles. The technology operates independently for each wheel, providing enhanced maneuverability.
The author expresses skepticism about the system but acknowledges witnessing its effectiveness. The system is suitable for electric vehicles (EVs) and not intended for high-speed sports cars. The additional motors do not significantly impact battery life or tire wear.
Hyundai Mobis, the automotive supplier, plans to sell this technology to automakers globally beginning in 2026. They anticipate it will take 2-3 years for the system to be implemented and available for use.
The author hopes that this technology will become widely available by the end of the decade and believes it would be a significant selling point for electric cars. Additionally, the article mentions that Sony’s Afeela electric car could benefit from such a desirable feature.
The article contains some fascinating photographs and video clips to illustrate the system’s capabilities.
