Hyderabad: Hyundai Motor Company has opened Hyundai Motor India Engineering Pvt. Ltd (HMIE),it's fourth overseas R&D center, at Hyderabad in India. The new 200,000 square-foot facility located in the HITECH City of Hyderabad has been set up with a US$ 25 million investment.

This newly created R&D center will serve as an important platform for the development of sub-compact cars. It will also support all back-end operations like computer aided engineering (CAE), computer aided design (CAD) and help the R & D work taking place across Hyundai’s car lineup.

The center currently employs about 300 engineers and Hyundai plans to gradually increase this number, while strengthening its operations.

It will provide vehicle development including styling, engineering design and vehicle test & evaluation for cars manufactured in India to satisfy the specific needs of the Indian customers. This is expected to accelerate local content development and enable Hyundai to respond even more quickly to changing customer needs.

The new facility, which is Hyundai's fourth overseas R&D center after United States, Germany and Japan, was completed in April 2009 following 25 months of construction activity.

Hyundai Motor Co. Chairman & CEO Chung Mong-Koo visited the company’s new R&D Center in the HITECH City of Hyderabad, India on Oct. 28. He toured the new R&D center and met local engineers.
