In case you were wondering, I received this response from Hyundai Australia :

"The inertial driving is the distance that is covered by the vehicle once you have removed your foot from the accelerator pedal until the vehicle has come to a complete stop. "

Just physics - google the definition of "inertia". Anyway, in this case it means the vehicle will continue to travel without power from the pedal. Until it comes to a stop either from gravity or smashing into something (or brakes/friction). I imagine the message is in reference to how it's calculating gas mileage.

Thanks for that. Context is when using the Auto Link app. There is a thing called Eco score that shows you how economical your driving has been. One criteria is called "Inertial Driving".

At first I Googled the term but nothing came back (unusual for Google) so I realized it must be a Hyundai-ism. I think it is what we used to call "Coasting", i.e. rolling forward without using the accelerator, just momentum.

See pic attached..
