Hyundai, Rolls-Royce sign MOU for air mobility development

Hyundai Motor Group signed an initial pact with Rolls-Royce to develop advanced air mobility (AAM) at Britain’s international air show.

The partnership is aimed at bringing all-electric propulsion and hydrogen fuel cell technology to the AAM market, Hyundai claimed.

Hyundai expects the combination of its hydrogen fuel cell technologies and Rolls-Royce’s aviation and certification expertise to accelerate the development of hydrogen fuel-cell propulsion systems, according to the South Korean News Agency (YONHAP).

“Hyundai successfully delivered hydrogen fuel cell systems to the global automotive market and is now exploring the feasibility of electric and hydrogen propulsion technologies for aerospace integration,” Hyundai AAM business President Shin Jai-won.

“We believe this will be the key technology to support the global aviation industry’s goal to fly net zero carbon by 2050.”
