End of Life Vehicle Scheme

Every Hyundai is built with consideration for what happens at the end of its life.

 
We use recycled and recyclable materials wherever possible. To make recycling easy, we label all parts weighing over 50g using recognised identification codes. And at our own steel mill, we're piloting a unit that can strip a Hyundai at the end of its life to a shell in just 30 minutes, then re-cycle the steel for new Hyundai cars.
 
By 2017, 95% of a Hyundai will be able to be recycled.

 

Our ELV scheme


We have arranged a free* take-back service for Hyundai vehicles, managed by Autogreen Ltd. For more information please visit the Autogreen website at http://www.rewardingrecycling.co.uk or call 0800 542 2002.
 
*A charge may be made is the vehicle is not complete or if it contains additional waste.
