Hyundai presents AFVs, Blue Link connectivity

Hyundai hit on two major themes of the show as it talked about its alternative fuel vehicles and described the connectivity functions of its Blue Link smartwatch app.

Michael Deitz, Hyundai Senior Group Manager, first mentioned the new Azera, which has not arrived in all showrooms yet. The plug-in Tucson will arrive in dealerships by late summer, and the next generation Sonata hybrid will be available by late spring 2016.

Hyundaiês Blue Link smartwatch app has many features that can be merged in the car and on the phone: emergency assistance, automatic collision notification, remote start, remote door lock, remote climate control, maintenance alerts delivered to the phone or vehicle. Dealers can also connect with their customers through Blue Link.

The In-Vehicle Car Care App, introduced in January, delivers used car guides, service schedules and other resources for customers. The Vehicle Safeguard Alerts In-Vehicle App is designed for parents who want to coach their teens, with range and speed alerts.
