Highlights:

Hyundai plans to bring 23 electric vehicles by 2025 of which 11 will be pure electric cars.

The first car on the E-GMP platform will be launched by 2021.

Models built on this platform will be rear-wheel-drive, while all-wheel-drive option will also be given in them.

Electric cars based on E-GMP will support a charging capacity of up to 350 kW.

Its integrated charging control unit will allow other electric equipment and other electric car batteries to be charged without any additional components.

These days, the trend towards electric cars has increased rapidly and this is the reason why many companies have also launched their cars in this segment. Now Hyundai and Kia motors together have created a new platform specifically for electric cars, called E-GMP.

The first electric car to be built on this platform will be launched by 2021, including the Hyundai IONIQ 5. At the same time, IONIQ 6 and IONIQ 7 will be introduced by 2024. Hyundai plans to launch a total of 23 electric cars by the year 2025, out of which 11 will be pure electric cars. IONIQ is a sub-brand of Hyundai, especially for electric vehicles.

Currently, the only car in Hyundai's electric car segment is the Kona EV. It is a front-wheel-drive car while the cars built on the E-GMP will have the power supply on the rear wheels. However, the company says that the option of all-wheel-drive can also be included by adding an additional motor. High-performance cars can also be manufactured on the E-GMP platform. According to the company, the high-performance models built on this platform will be able to reach 0 to 100 kilometres per hour in less than 3.5 seconds and their top speed will be 260 kilometres per hour.

According to Hyundai, electric cars of many segments can be produced on the new E-GMP platform. The wheelbase of the cars built on this platform will be bigger, which will result in a lot of space in their cabins. In these, the battery pack will be fitted inside the floor between the two axles, the result of this is a greater distribution of weight and a low centre of gravity.

E-GMP based electric cars will support fast charging up to 800 V 350 kW. These will be given Hyundai's patented technology that can boost charging from 400 V to 800 V without any additional component. There will also be a vehicle-to-load (V2L) function, with the help of which the consumer will be able to charge the battery of another electric car from his car battery. The V2L function will supply a power of 3.5 kW. According to the company, battery-powered electric cars built on the E-GMP platform will give more than 500 km range in full charge. With high-speed charging, they can be charged up to 80 per cent in just 18 minutes.

As the infrastructure for electric cars is developed in the international market, it can be estimated that Hyundai's new dedicated electric car will be launched abroad first. In India, the company may launch mass-market electric cars in the coming few years. Hyundai's Kona electric car is currently available for sale in India. Its range is close to 450 km while its price is around Rs. 24 lakh (ex-showroom).
