Hyundai opens data center in Guizhou
Automotive News China | 2017/9/29

Hyundai Motor Group opened a data center this week in Gui¡¯an city in southwest China¡¯s Guizhou province to support telematics services for car owners in China.

The center will analyze data uploaded from vehicles in China to offer connected-car services to Hyundai customers. It also will analyze driving patterns of local customers and help Hyundai to monitor and diagnose potential problems with vehicles.

On Tuesday, Hyundai also signed a memorandum of understanding with China Unicom, China's second-largest telecom operator, to jointly develop a predictive analytics platform for its vehicle fleet in China.  

Hyundai and affiliate Kia Motors Corp. are counting on the connected-car initiative to help prop up China sales in the wake of South Korea¡¯s decision to deploy U.S.-built anti-missile defenses. That move triggered anti-Korean sentiment among Chinese car shoppers.

For the first eight months, local joint ventures of the Hyundai and Kia brands suffered steep sales drop-offs.

For the year to date, sales of Hyundai¡¯s joint venture with BAIC Motor Co. plunged 40 percent year on year to 404,300 vehicles, according to the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers.

For the period, deliveries of Kia¡¯s partnership with Dongfeng Motor Corp. tumbled 53 percent to 172,674 vehicles.
