In Hyundai's new factory, robots are in charge and customers can drive home in their new car six hours after placing an order. You hardly meet people there. Is this the future of the car factory?
A factory run by AI and where robots assemble the entire car: it is no longer a thing of the future. Hyundai is already working hard on this at its factory in Singapore, where the Hyundai Ioniq 5 will be built from 2024 onwards Hyundai Ioniq 6. If everything goes according to plan, other factories will also be set up in this way. Customers are very welcome. They can go by and see a new car rolling off the production line within six hours.

The new factories exclusively produce electric cars and are accessible to customers. Factory boss Alpesh Patel mentions the concept Autocar not a factory, but a 'center for customer experience'. Simply put: you visit and drive your personalized new car out of the factory within six hours.
It all starts in the 'Ioniq lounge', where customers are received. Here they can design their electric Hyundai completely to their own taste. Customers are then taken to a virtual reality room, where they see a simulation of their new car. After this, the screen raises and the factory floor and the actual car are shown to the customer.

Before they get the keys, customers eat products grown on site in a restaurant. Once again, it is robots that do that. The car is then tested, which customers can also view on site. Finally, the completed car is delivered by robots.
Performance reviews hardly need to be conducted, because the factory's workforce consists largely of robots. This is still a test, but Hyundai aims to make robots ultimately responsible for daily business operations. Hyundai wants to achieve this within three years. The robots are no longer controlled by people. The only thing that still involves people is checking the cars.
