In addition to the comprehensive proving ground in Seosan, Korea, there are three winter proving grounds (Sweden, China and New Zealand).
They are engaged in in-vehicle verification of new technologies, such as chassis, trim,
autonomous driving, connectivity and electrification, and leading the development of future mobility solutions.
Seosan Proving Ground
The seosan proving ground, which tests and evaluates core future mobility technologies, occupies a 1,090,000 m² (about 340,000 pyeong) lot. It is home to the best facilities among global automotive suppliers. We are conducting in-vehicle verification on the 14 state-of-the-art test tracks, including the first autonomous driving & radar test track in Korea with a 5G communication environment, the world’s longest tunnel test track, and special roads (circular, climbing and wide low-friction roads). Also, we constructed four test buildings, focusing on battery durability, performance and environment-friendliness, to conduct component performance tests.

Winter Proving Grounds
To improve winter performance related to braking and steering and ADAS, we are operating winter proving grounds in Arjeplog, Sweden, Heihe, China, and Wanaka, New Zealand.
They all have ABS test tracks, circular tracks and asymmetrical test tracks on icy roads thicker than 1 m, and conduct in-vehicle tests for new technologies and safety at a very low temperature dropping to -40 ℃.
