Under the memorandum of understanding (MoU), the foundation, which is the philanthropic arm of Hyundai Motor India, donated a KONA Electric for NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) and battery technology research for students of IIT Delhi, the company said in a statement.

''We are glad to collaborate with FITT (Foundation for Innovation and Technology Transfer)- IIT Delhi to support the research work of students of Centre for Automotive Research and Tribology (CART).

''Our collaborative efforts with IIT Delhi and the donation of KONA Electric will provide an opportunity for students to study and develop insights towards a brighter & greener future for the generations to come,'' Hyundai Motor India MD and CEO S S Kim said.
