Details

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.

  • That car looks pretty damn good. I'd like to see it in production.

    Also, that platform architecture looks incredibly well thought out. Dropping a frame on top of the battery pack/drive train is brilliant. That's makes for an incredibly flexible setup. I expect they are going to be putting out some awesome EV's. As much as I love ICE it's time for them to be sent out to pasture. They had a great run.

  • Someone should build a floor plan that you could switch bodies, convertible one day, wagon the next. Perfect.

  • A very ambitious but also realistic target. It's what is going to happen anyway and to embrace the change, to become a significant player in that change, will help transition our unsustainable way of life to one there is a least the chance to retain the quality without the destruction we currently enact. More seriously though, is that those car companies dragging their heels and following deadend technologies, are literally signing their own death warrants. Look about you. So many great names, great businesses, that are going to the wall all about us. Many different reasons, but all due to their lack of ability to change in time to keep up with a changing modern world. Retail outlets closing because we don't buy from retailers any more. We buy from a .COM on the internet. We have no idea who is actually selling the thing, just that it is what we want at a price we're happy to pay. The same with cars. You can buy an EV straight from the factory, even have it delivered to your door. Next to no maintenance, so no need to bother about a Main Agent or a salesperson or any of that misery. Expect some REALLY big names we are all familiar with, right from the moment we were conscious of such matters, to vanish from the firmament. New names are waiting in the wings to fill their places with stuff we now want in a way we now want it. You might have loved your old CRT television, saved up for it and cherished it, but you'd not want to go back to one, fill your house with such a big, heavy clunky thing instead of your huge, widescreen TV hanging like a picture frame on the wall. Hyundai/Kia Group are now cutting edge vehicle manufacturers. Not so long ago they were nothing, nobody. The last scrappage scheme let owners of old bangers buy a new, ultra cheap new car from these Companies. Instead of just sitting on their hands and letting the cash roll in until the scheme stopped, they invested in better styling, better designs and developing better technology. That philosophy never ended either. Now they are ahead of virtually every other legacy automaker and joining the leaders of the motoring revolution. Bloody well done!
