We now have more clarity on the evolution of the e-GMP architecture currently underpinning Hyundai, Kia and Genesis EV models
The Hyundai Group has said it will bring two new vehicle platforms starting in 2025.
Codenamed EM and ES, both platforms will be created under the group’s joint Integrated Modular Architecture (IMA).
Hyundai Australia has revealed to local media that the new platform will see a 50 percent increase in driving range over the current electric vehicles.
The EM platform will support level three or higher autonomous driving and OTA updates and will be designed for private passenger vehicles.
The other platform, ES, will be built for a more commercial, specific-use vehicle for ride-hailing, logistics and delivery companies, for example. It’ll use a fully flexible structure with a skateboard battery layout for different working purposes.
Also new will be the integrated modular architecture that will underpin all new Hyundai Group products. The reason for this is to apply common components such as batteries and electric motors, therefore efficiently expanding the lineup of its vehicles.
