Hyundai and Motional have announced plans to produce the Ioniq 5 self-driving car at Hyundai’s new plant in Singapore. The self-driving car (AV) will be produced at the Hyundai Motor Group Innovation Center Singapore (HMGICS) and deployed as part of Motional’s U.S. commercial operations in 2024.

Motional’s self-driving Ioniq 5 cabs have been operating in Las Vegas, Nevada for the past two years. These vehicles serve as prototypes and have allowed Motional to refine its development efforts. The company plans to offer driverless service by the end of 2023.

The Ioniq 5 self-driving car will be manufactured in Singapore and will come off the production line with all software and hardware fully integrated. This is in contrast to many other self-driving cars, which come with modified equipment.

Motional says this integration ensures the highest quality and international scalability for the Ioniq 5. It also makes the cab one of the first Level 4 self-driving cars to be certified to the U.S. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard, which was developed by the Society of Automotive Engineers.

Hyundai claims that HMGICS is one of the most advanced facilities of its kind, utilizing cutting-edge technologies such as automation and real-time data monitoring to “push the boundaries of production” for testing and calibrating self-driving cars.

Commercial production of the cab is underway, with the first models already in service at Motional in the U.S., and will be tested and validated before deployment in 2024.

“We are honored to produce the Ioniq 5 Robot Taxi at this facility and look forward to rolling out the first FMVSS-certified self-driving cars to the world,” said Karl Iagnemma, Motional’s president and CEO.

“Through our partnership with Hyundai, we have developed an industry-leading robotic cab that meets stringent federal standards and is ready for mass commercialization.
