Hyundai Motor’s IONIQ 5 robotaxi passes US driver’s license test

Hyundai Motor Co.’s IONIQ 5 roboxi has passed a US driver’s license test, moving a step closer to realizing the freedom of mobility for all, including physically impaired people.

Hyundai, South Korea’s top automaker, over the weekend unveiled a video showing a robotaxi based on its all-electric IONIQ 5 crossover successfully completing a process similar to an actual US driver’s license test.
