Introducing Unique & Seamless Experiences Only for EV Drivers in Singapore
Today, Hyundai Motor Group and Komoco Motors also announced the continuation of their strategic partnership with the establishment of a unique and holistic EV ecosystem, including an end-to-end online sales platform and holistic EV care services. This aims to further support Singaporeans in the EV adoption journey.
With Singapore’s first End-To-End (E2E) online sales platform, Hyundai will provide price transparency and seamless experiences to empower the mobility of customers. To support each unique customer purchase journey – from order to production, to test drive, to servicing – this platform will provide vehicle configuration services, financing options insurance options and AI COE predictions.
As part of the EV ecosystem, Hyundai will introduce an industry-first – EV Care Services (ECS). By analyzing the patterns of the user’s EV usage, based on the data from Hyundai Motor Group’s global standardized Connected Car Services, the ECS will be able to offer a customized guide to improve EV battery quality and efficiency. A 10-year battery warranty and 10-year free service program will also be included.
Komoco is committed to be a lighthouse in Singapore’s EV eco-system
An early entrant to the EV scene, with six out of its nine current range models running on hybrid or electric power units, Komoco is committed to helping the nation embrace the EV future through its complete suite of tailored services.
On January 12, the Komoco Hyundai showroom will reopen its doors after renovations to welcome clients with a refreshed look. With a “Refined Simplicity” theme, the new Hyundai showroom sports a design language that is elegantly minimal, impactful and future-oriented.
In September 2022, a dedicated EV Service Center at Komoco Motors, which is the world’s first Hyundai-branded facility of its kind, was opened to provide customized maintenance services to customers as part of this ecosystem. The dedicated EV specialists, advanced EV diagnostic equipment, and tools with first-of-its-kind self-help services, will be available to Hyundai EV owners at the Komoco Service Centre.
A tripartite Memorandum of Understanding was also signed between Hyundai Motor Company, the Institute of Technical Education (ITE) and Komoco Motors during the EV Service Centre’s opening to lay the pathway for ITE students to train at Hyundai and gain work experience at Komoco.
These efforts to strengthen all aspects of Komoco’s operations reaffirms the company’s longstanding partnership with Hyundai. With four decades of experience in establishing Hyundai as a household name, the Singapore automotive group is looking forward to more years ahead as a cornerstone of the country’s EV eco-system, standing by the clients’ sides throughout the lifetime of the product as well as enlarging the talent pool of EV specialists to cater to the industry’s needs.
Mr Teo Hock Seng, Executive Chairman of Komoco Motors, said, “The car industry will undergo massive change in the next decade, and I’m glad that Komoco has already taken steps to be a lighthouse as Singapore navigates the many changes coming our way. We have the capacity to manage the growing demand for EVs and to keep them roadworthy. Komoco does not stand alone in this; we are collaborative as we work closely with Hyundai and stakeholders like institutes of learning to fill all the gaps in the eco-system. This collaborative EV ecosystem will make EV driving a more instinctive and informed way of life for Singapore, and take the nation on this journey towards achieving cleaner and sustainable growth.”
