Hyundai Launches New Electronic Leveling Control for Most of its Vehicles

For mild off-roading or track, Hyundai's electronic leveling control suspension will heighten driving experiences

  • The electronic leveling control (ELC) is a height-adjustable suspension.

  • It can increase the range for electrified models and handling for performance vehicles.

The only questions that remain following this announcement are: When will it arrive? And, on what models? Hyundai Mobis and Hyundai Motor Company have introduced the Electronic Leveling Control (ELC) and its impact will be wide-ranging.

Park Jung-hun, Vice President, Head of the Safety Parts Lab, at Hyundai Mobis, said, “ELC is a technology that has been developed to be applicable not only in the EV and the PBV market but also in high-performance cars. We expect ELC to attract a huge amount of attention in the future mobility market as it will materialize different new features.”

The ELC’s purpose is to improve not only safety but drivability by increasing capability. The ELC’s system adjusts the vehicle’s ride height by up to 6 cm in various circumstances, including rough roads, highways, and parking lots. In other words, the technology, which can be fitted to all of Hyundai’s vehicles, the vehicle’s undercarriage, batteries included, will benefit from extra protection. And there’s more. Lowering a vehicle’s height while driving on highways has multiple benefits. Firstly, it minimizes air resistance, which increases the cruising distance. Secondly, it improves driving performance by lowering the center of gravity.

Essentially, the ELC is that it offers all the features one would expect from a high-end air suspension system, such as safeguarding the underside of the vehicle, better energy efficiency, increased ease when entering or exiting the vehicle, and maintaining a consistent height for the vehicle.
