Hyundai To Have 23 Global EVs By 2025, Unveils New Platform
Hyundai debuted the E-GMP electric vehicle platform, one that is capable of supporting 600 horsepower.
1. Hyundai has unveiled the E-GMP platform, a base that will support the coming Hyundai and Kia EVs.
2. Vehicles on this platform can generate up to 600 horsepower, and a performance EV will be part of their lineup, Hyundai says.
3. Hyundai is targeting 310 miles of range, but battery size, specific range figures, and other battery related details haven't been released yet.
Hyundai debuted the E-GMP (Electric-Global Modular Platform) platform, one that will support 23 global electric vehicles by 2025. It will be used by Kia and Hyundai and is set to have a performance model included with the upcoming EVs. The first model will be called the Hyundai Ioniq 5, a model of which we've only seen in concept form. Over time, Genesis EVs and other Ioniq, Kia, and Hyundai models will utilize this platform, but nothing related to Genesis has been confirmed.
The platform is smart too, and can detach the front motors to increase efficiency when in all-wheel drive form. The E-GMP will also be capable of 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds according to Hyundai, and can support 600 horsepower. Charging time has been decreased massively compared the majority of EVs right now too, and can charge up to 80% in just 18 minutes on the WLTP scale.
Albert Biermann, president and head of R&D for the Hyundai Motor Group, said the rear-wheel-driven-based E-GMP will extend Hyundai's "technological leadership into segments where customers demand excellent driving dynamics and outstanding efficiency." The platform can also run a midsize air conditioner and a 55-inch TV for 24 hours but, perhaps more importantly, has the power to charge another EV.
