Keeping it electric, Hyundai is taking big strides in that particular market place, promising a car that can go 500km (311 miles) on each charge.

The South Korean manufacturer already has an electric model on the market, but its range lags behind its competitors’ models. Along with its affiliate Kia, Hyundai is planning 31 eco-friendly models by 2020.

Hyundai’s environmentally-conscious new additions will include three plug-in hybrid vehicles, eight battery-powered cars and two fuel-cell vehicles.

The company also has plans to develop its first dedicated facility for pure electric vehicles, which will allow it to produce a variety of cars with longer driving ranges. Its current electric model, the Ioniq, has a range of 280km, less than GM’s Bolt or Tesla’s Model 3, which both have ranges in excess of 350km.
