Hyundai Launches EV Framework to Have 23 Worldwide Electric Cars by 2025

Today, EVs have been a big part of the road maps of automotive companies. By now, car manufacturers have concluded that shoving parts of electric cars into vehicles designed to run on fuel does not always lead to the sort of performance that an Electric car and a production line require. With all this in mind, Hyundai is the newest automaker to launch a modular Electric vehicle platform, even disclosing that it will manufacture 23 battery-electric cars by 2025.

The latest Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) will become the underpinning of new Hyundai as well as Kia EVs beginning in the year 2021. The Hyundai Ioniq 5, which we have only seen in design form so far, will be the first car. Then, it will be included in other Hyundai as well as Kia cars, which are likely to have the other Ioniq EVs that we foresee from the Korean automaker. For possible Genesis Electric cars, it’ll be used as well.

A battery pack under the cabin, as well as an all-in-one engine, transmission, and inverter planned and built by Hyundai, will be the key components of the platform. By bundling the parts, Hyundai stated, considering its limited size, it increased the maximum engine speed by up to 70% compared to current engines. The firm claims it will extract up to a maximum of 600 horsepower from the machine, and next year, the firm can display off a vehicle with very high performance. For the sake of performance, both Tesla and Lucid build their motors. Rather than using something off the shelves from a retailer, Hyundai will be doing the same work to support it reach the kind of efficiencies seen in Electric Vehicle-centric manufacturers.

Owing to an 800-volt design that allows charging speeds of a maximum of 350 kW, Electric vehicles based on the new model, Hyundai said, will be capable of around 310 miles of range while on the WLTP scale as well as capable of charging to 80% in 18 minutes. About 60 miles can be achieved using a five-minute charge. Hyundai has not published specifics of the battery sizes which will be required for the new platform on any of the highly anticipated vehicles or maybe even a variety of battery pack sizes. The company states that these batteries will reside under the cabin and that the vehicles would have a lengthy wheelbase to allow passengers and cargo to get more cabin space.

“The rear-wheel-driven E-GMP was going to expand Hyundai’s “technological supremacy” into sectors where consumers expect outstanding driving dynamics as well as the efficiency of the operations,” stated Albert Biermann. He serves as the president and also the head of R&D for Hyundai Motor Company.
