The Hyundai Motor Group's new E-GMP architecture will prove crucial for expanded electric vehicle line-ups

Hyundai and Kia have developed a new electric vehicle platform that will underpin the next generation of the brands’ EVs. Hyundai Motor Group’s new E-GMP will allow for EVs with a range of more than 310 miles on a charge and ultra-rapid charging that will top up to 80% in less than 20 minutes.

High performance models are on their way as well, with the E-GMP platform able to house motors capable of providing 0-62mph times of less than 3.5 seconds, and a top speed of more than 160mph.

Vehicle-to-grid charging will be possible thanks to a new bi-directional multi-charging systems, capable of 400V or 800V for use on ultra-rapid points. This means a charge to 80% can be completed in 18 minutes, and more than 60 miles of range can be added in just five minutes.

The E-GMP is the group’s first dedicated EV architecture, and will form the basis for 11 dedicated pure-electric vehicles launched by 2025.
