Hyundai and Kia Unveil Groundbreaking 'Active Air Skirt' Technology for Enhanced Electric Vehicle Performance

Pioneering Aerodynamic Innovation to Boost Driving Range and Stability in EVs

AAS technology controls the turbulence generated during high-speed driving by operating variably depending on the vehicle’s speed Installed between the front bumper and the front wheels, AAS is hidden during normal operation but operates at speeds over 80 km/h when the aerodynamic resistance becomes greater than the air resistance and is stored again at 70 km/h Taking into account the specificity of the E-GMP platform, it is positioned only in front of the tires without completely covering the front end Aerodynamic enhancements of the technology increase downforce, which improves vehicle traction and high-speed stability As a result of being tested in the GV60, it is expected to reduce the drag coefficient by 2.8 percent and improve the driving range of electric vehicles
