Hyundai is unveiling details of the E-GMP platform on which its future electric vehicles will be based.The Hyundai Group presents the Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) to serve as the basis for future all-electric vehicles of the Hyundai, Kia and Genesis brands. Like Volkswagen’s SEM architecture,

the E-GMP is designed to accommodate its batteries under the floor, its main engine on the rear axle for rear-wheel drive base cars, and an additional engine on the front axle for more powerful models with disengageable all-wheel drive.
The battery can be recharged with 800V or 400V. Hyundai promises a range of more than 500km and an 80% recharge in 18mn, or 5mn charge to cover 100km.

Compact, elevated and sporty on the program

The E-GMP architecture will be used in particular for Hyundai’s Ioniq range, starting with the Ioniq 5 announced for 2021. Halfway between a compact sedan and an SUV, this model derived from the 45 concept car will compete with the next Renault Mégane.

Hyundai also announces the arrival of an electric sports car based on this platform, capable of going from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.5s and reaching a top speed of 260 km/h. This is likely to be the model developed with Rimac from the Hyundai RM mid-rear engine prototypes.

The Hyundai group plans to offer 23 electric models, 11 of which will be exclusively powered by this type of engine, by 2025.
