The brand that comes closest to Tesla in terms of its electric vehicles’ efficiency, with solvent proposals such as the electric Kona or the ultra-efficient Ioniq, now presents the basis for its new generation of electric cars.
Under the name Ioniq, the Korean giant will launch new and modern proposals for zero-emission vehicles from 2021. To have 23 exclusively electric models by 2025, the new platform will be extremely versatile.
The E-GMP will serve as a basis for options under the SUV typology, saloons, and other options that will cover everything from popular cars of excellent circulation to high-performance vehicles. A highly flexible platform allows to reduce costs and face different architectures that are easy to develop.
“Designed exclusively for BEV, E-GMP offers several advantages compared to the Group’s existing platforms, which have been predominantly designed to accommodate internal combustion engines. The benefits include greater flexibility of development, powerful driving performance, greater driving range, reinforced safety features, and interior space for occupants and luggage.”
Based on the Global Modular Platform, the Korean manufacturer wants to offer electric cars with autonomies of more than 310 miles on a single charge.
The benefits will not be forgotten by a chassis that will allow you to enjoy accelerations from 0 to 62 mph in 3.5 seconds and reach up to 160 mph, eliminating the limitations of its current Kona and Ioniq.
The future electric cars of the Group that will arrive from next year will recharge, thanks to their 800V system, 80% of their battery in just 18 minutes.
