Seoul: Hyundai Motor will start developing a one-seater electric car and an electric scooter, according to a media report, as the South Korean auto-maker seeks to expand into the burgeoning "smart mobility" industry.

Devising smarter ways to get around - known in the industry as smart mobility - looks set to become a new battleground for auto-makers as urbanisation grows, pollution worsens, and more cars clog up cities in emerging markets.

The plan is part of Hyundai's future mobility project IONIQ unveiled by the auto-maker's heir apparent and vice chairman Chung Eui-sun at the Geneva auto show on Tuesday, Korea Economic Daily said, citing a company official.

Hyundai is also working on a wearable robot to help senior citizens move around, the report said.

A Hyundai spokeswoman declined to comment on the report.
