Hyundai Modern Jeepney Class 1: The Filipino’s Modern Workhorse For Smart Mobility

Hyundai Asia Resources Inc. (HARI) recently unveiled the Hyundai Modern Jeepney Class 1 at the Roads & Traffic Expo Philippines last October 1 to 2, 2019. Inspired by the President Rodrigo Duterte Administration’s “Build Build Build” modernization program which aims to improve the infrastructure and transportation sectors in the country, the Hyundai Modern Jeepney Class 1 is the product of the collaboration of the world’s 5th biggest automaker, the Hyundai Motor Company (HMC) and HARI.

It goes beyond serving as a fusion of the Filipino’s legendary ingenuity and Korea’s renowned technology, since it also ushers in a fresh new take for the “King of the Philippine Road.”  Indeed, the Hyundai Modern Jeepney Class 1 is made people-centric, fuel efficient and innovative.

The Hyundai Modern Jeepney Class 1 is engineered to have ample seating capacity that can accommodate 12 passengers (plus 1 driver) comfortably. What’s more is that it possesses a long wheelbase, which means two things: more passengers and cargo can be carried without putting too much stress on the vehicle (which can affect fuel economy), and it lowers the center of gravity of the vehicle, thus keeping it steady and firmly planted on the road.

Fuel efficient
Powered by a 2.5L CRDi diesel engine, the Hyundai Modern Jeepney Class 1 is packed with enough power (maximum output of 130ps) and torque (26 kg-m at 1,500 rpm), making sure that it can deliver good fuel economy and sufficient power output to get you through the day. Plus, it’s also mated to a 6-speed manual transmission that fits the strict Euro 4 regulation, proving that its topnotch engine performance, supported by the driver’s efficient driving and eco-friendly engine operation can let its driver save up on fuel and enjoy more savings, while helping minimize adverse impact on the environment, as the engine emits less particulate matter in the air.

Staying true to its promise of smart mobility, the Hyundai Modern Jeepney Class 1 is also engineered to have a load-sensing proportional valve (LSPV) control, which provides optimal braking stability as fluid pressure is controlled according to the loading ratio, and semi-elliptical leaf springs for rear suspension, which allow exceptional durability and resistance against lateral rolling for optimal suspension, regardless of cargo carried.  Aside from those, the Hyundai Modern Jeepney Class 1 can also be fitted with optional features such as a modern digital signboard that provides better visibility for potential passengers, CCTV monitor, surveillance cameras and reverse cameras that enhance both the passengers’ and driver’s safety and security when out on the road, optional Wifi router for better connectivity, and two (2) AFCS systems for easy payment and collection of the passengers’ fare.

Indeed, the Hyundai Modern Jeepney Class 1 is ready to bring smart mobility that can enable Filipinos to experience a better, smarter, and safer commuter experience.
