Earlier this month, Hyundai Motor Company held an ‘EV Tech Lab’, a global workshop specialising in electric vehicle (EV) maintenance, to enhance its professional capabilities in the EV era.

The workshop was designed to help establish the Korean carmaker as a top EV company by placing global EV maintenance professionals through theoretical and practical trainings. The training focused on repairing EVs, with courses focused on typical maintenance cases and high-level repairs.

“This workshop will help Hyundai Motor take the lead as a global top brand in EV maintenance technology,” said Sung Nam Kim, Vice-President and Head of Global Channel and Service Sub-Division at Hyundai Motor Company. “We will continue striving to provide professional and advanced maintenance service for EVs to our global customers.” 

The EV Tech Lab workshop was held from June 28 to July 6, with 25 global key EV maintenance professionals in attendance from Europe, the U.S. and Asia. Service experts at Hyundai Motor, including proficient mechanics from Korea, led the training.

The workshop’s interactive courses included ‘EV Tech Training’ based on actual field cases and shared regional repair cases, ‘EV Tech Study’ on quality-related cases and lectures on EV trends, and ‘EV Tech Experience’ with field trips to EV-related sites, including Hyundai Motor’s Ulsan plant, , Hyundai Motorstudio GoyangGenesis Suji, and EV-specialized service bases such as the Hyundai EV Station Gangdong.

As more consumers choose EVs, the importance of systematic maintenance services and infrastructure is expected to increase. Hyundai Motor says it is focused on continuing the training of maintenance experts. To this end, the company plans to provide pre-emptive customer service by strengthening its EV maintenance data analysis capabilities in global service sectors.
