Hyundai Cars will begin selling emergency services in cities around the country, the company has announced.
The new ‘Hyundai Emergency Response’ app will allow users to call for help in emergency situations in the areas of accident prevention, disaster response, road safety, public transport and more.
This app will also include a ‘911’ option, which will allow owners to call on an emergency number for a specific person or location.
According to the company, emergency services can be a “key element of an autonomous driving experience”, and it plans to release the app for Android devices by the end of the year.
Hyundai Cars will also start offering emergency service on the platform of the company’s autonomous vehicles, which are already available in select markets in Europe, Japan, and the US.
