This production trick by Tesla should make electric Hyundais cheaper -

Tesla is pulling miles ahead of its competitors in some areas. Such as with its giant factories in which the gigantic injection molding press replaces 70 individual parts with 3 large ones. Now Hyundai wants to copy the idea of ​​the Giga Press.

Every student knows: if you copy someone else's homework, you have to adjust a few things. That is why Hyundai does not speak of a Giga Press and Giga Casting, as Tesla does, but of 'hypercasting'. That is a completely different way of aluminum injection molding. Really true. Wink.

Three large parts instead of 70 small ones

Hyundai filed the hypercasting patent with the US patent office last month. The usefulness of such a large injection molding press is clear: instead of producing dozens of small, individual parts that you then have to weld together, the enormous machine spits them out as one complete construction.

Tesla uses its Giga Press to speed up and simplify the production process. 70 individual parts are replaced by three large ones. The cost savings are approximately 30 percent. Not to mention the time savings. Both help keep future electric Hyundais affordable.

Zeekr also has a giga press

We don't blame Hyundai for copying production tricks from Tesla, we see it as a compliment to the Americans. Apparently Toyota, Volkswagen and Volvo are also interested in the production technology of the popular EV manufacturer.

Newcomer Zeekr is already using the advanced injection molding press. According to the subsidiary of the gigantic Geely group, this saves 800 welding points, fewer cutting errors are made and the car is also lighter and stiffer.

Hyundai private lease

Even without hypercasting, Hyundai cars are available cheaply via private lease. With our comparator you will find different ones Hyundai private lease deals. You can also contact us for all other cars private lease comparator.
