AGENCY: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Department of Transportation (DOT). ACTION: Grant of petition for exemption. SUMMARY: This document grants in full the Hyundai-Kia Motors Corporation (HATCI) petition for exemption of the Hyundai VI vehicle line in accordance with 49 CFR part 543, Exemption from Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard. This petition is granted because the agency has determined that the antitheft device to be placed on the line as standard equipment is likely to be as effective in reducing and deterring motor vehicle theft as compliance with the partsmarking requirements of 49 CFR part 541, Federal Motor Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard. DATES: The exemption granted by this notice is effective beginning with the 2011 Model Year (MY). FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Carlita Ballard, International Policy, Fuel Economy and Consumer Programs, NHTSA, W43–439, 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., Washington, DC 20590. Ms. Ballard’s phone number is (202) 366–0846. Her fax number is (202) 493– 2990. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In a petition dated September 11, 2009, Hyundai requested an exemption from the parts-marking requirements of the Theft Prevention Standard (49 CFR Part 541) for the Hyundai VI vehicle line, beginning with MY 2011. The petition requested an exemption from partsmarking requirements pursuant to 49 CFR 543, Exemption from Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard, based on the installation of an antitheft device as standard equipment for the entire vehicle line. Under Section § 543.5(a), a manufacturer may petition NHTSA to grant exemptions for one of its vehicle lines per model year. Hyundai petitioned the agency to grant an exemption for its VI vehicle line beginning with MY 2011. In its petition, Hyundai provided a detailed description and diagram of the identity, design, and location of the components of the antitheft device for the new vehicle line. Hyundai will install its passive Smart-key Immobilizer device and alarm system (audible and visual) PO 00000 Frm 00087 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 6253 on the VI vehicle line as standard equipment. According to Hyundai, the Smart-key immobilizer device allows the driver/operator to access and operate the vehicle by using a valid FOB key and that no other actions by mechanical key or a remote control unit are necessary. Hyundai further states that the immobilizer is automatically activated when the electronic key code of the FOB key is removed from the smart-key immobilizer control unit. The audible and visual alarm system is automatically activated when the electronic key code of the FOB key is removed from the smart-key immobilizer control unit, all vehicle doors and the hood are closed, and all the doors are locked. If the device is armed and unauthorized entry is attempted, the vehicle’s horn will sound and the hazard lamps will flash. Hyundai stated that its Smart-key immobilizer device also features passive vehicle access, trunk access and door locking. Specifically, Hyundai stated that if a valid FOB key is in the range defined by this device, the device will automatically detect and authenticate the FOB via wireless communication between the FOB key and the Smart-key immobilizer unit. If communication is authenticated, the device will allow passive accessibility to the doors and/or trunk, and/or passive locking of all the doors. In addressing the specific content requirements of 543.6, Hyundai provided information on the reliability and durability of the device. Hyundai conducted component tests and onvehicle tests for the Smart-key immobilizer system and the alarm system in accordance with the EEC, UNECE, Korea standard and Hyundai in-house standard. Specifically, Hyundai provided approval numbers for all tests performed In support of its belief that its antitheft device will be as effective as compliance with the parts marking requirements in reducing and deterring vehicle theft, Hyundai referenced and provided an April 2006 report by JP Research, Inc., which concluded that antitheft devices were consistently much more effective in reducing thefts when compared to parts marking. The JP Research report showed that of the 24 vehicle lines studied, those with antitheft devices installed were 70% more effective than parts marking in deterring theft. Hyundai also provided theft data on other manufacturer’s vehicle lines (Lincoln Town Car, Chrysler Town and Country, Mazda MX–5 Miata and Mazda 3) that have been exempted from the theft prevention standard. Hyundai stated E:\FR\FM\08FEN1.SGM 08FEN1
