Hyundai’s Electric Mobility campaign in India kicked off in 2019 with the introduction of the country’s first electric SUV, the Kona Electric. With this dedicated BEV platform, the South Korean automaker will lead the development of future electric vehicles, which will now be available in India with the Ioniq 5. The modular architecture consists of a vehicle chassis with a battery, motor, and power electric system.

The battery system includes an advanced battery pack with a long-range, and the bi-directional charging plug allows the high-voltage battery to power a variety of electronic appliances. The E-GMP platform also includes an integrated charging control unit (ICCU), which charges both the high-voltage and auxiliary batteries.

The modular systems will allow for the flexible development of multiple vehicles that cater to a wide range of customer needs, as well as the configuration of multiple high-range battery options by adding or removing standard battery modules. Hyundai claims that the Ioniq 5 has a top speed of 185 kmph.

Using a 350 kW DC charger, the ultrafast charging capability can charge up to 80% in just 18 minutes. The E-GMP platform targets dependability, performance, and sustainability, and an eight-point battery mounting has been incorporated to improve battery safety through a strong battery-to-floor connection. The Ioniq 5 is expected to enter local production, and prices may be more competitive than those of its sibling, the Kia EV6.
