Hyundai - the latest entrant to the 'Blue' league, is ready to flaunt its i-range with eco technology at Geneva Motor Show. The concepts, dubbed i-Blue range combines existing technologies in innovative ways to show what can be done to make a green car - today.

Hyundai's 'Eco technology' strives to reduce emissions by:

  • Increasing motor efficiency
  • Reducing driveline friction
  • Focusing on aerodynamics
  • Including stop-start ignition
  • Employing low-rolling-resistance tires
  • Lowering the suspension

Hyundai i30 will feature a Stop-Start system

  • Engine stop-start system from Germany's Bosch
  • System uses an advanced starter motor connected to the ECU
  • Joined by low-rolling resistance tires and a few aerodynamic enhancements
  • Results in 15% lesser fuel consumption in city and 7% lesser on the highway(compared to standard i30)

Also accompanying the i30 Blue will be the HED-6 which is in essence, the next Tucson.
