The vehicles will be compatible with 800-V fast-charging infrastructure and 350 kW standard charging. The company claims that it is the first multi-charging system of its type. The charging system can also discharge electricity at 110 and 220 V and can be used to power other electric vehicles.
The platform’s main components will be a battery pack under the cabin and an all-in-one motor, transmission, and inverter designed and developed by Hyundai.
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.”
