Hyundai Motor India has announced the introduction of its dedicated E-GMP (electric global modular platform) for India with the launch of the Ioniq 5 following soon.

Designed for the future vehicle, the platform comprises the battery, motor and power electric system. It has been developed on four pillars of modularity, performance, reliability and usability.

Unsoo Kim, MD and CEO, Hyundai Motor India, said, “With the introduction of E-GMP to India, we will be able to provide customers with advanced battery electric vehicles, derived from a platform that is modular, scalable and versatile.” 

With E-GMP, the Korean carmaker  has reduced complexity with modularisation and standardisation, thereby catering to the rapid development of vehicles with various body types. 

The advanced architecture of E-GMP and its modular systems will enable flexible development of multiple vehicles that cater to diverse customer needs. Further, with the modularity of this platform, multiple high-range battery options can be configured by adding or removing standard battery modules.

E-GMP has been designed to deliver enhanced driving dynamics with improved cornering performance and driving stability at high speeds achieved through optimal weight distribution between front and rear. 

Through its low mounted battery pack, the platform delivers a low centre of gravity, thereby enhancing cornering performance. 

On the Hyundai IONIQ 5, the high-speed electric motor delivers a top speed of 185 km/h. With the use of a 5-link rear suspension the platform is able to deliver superior ride comfort and handling. With E-GMP, customers can charge up to 80 % in 18 Minutes (with a 350 kW DC charger).

On the safety side, E-GMP has been developed with front energy absorption zone that is built to deform and absorb shocks for passenger safety. E-GMP also offers maximised interior space with a long wheelbase. 

By shifting the AC system to the engine bay, it will also offer increased cabin space. With E-GMP, the Ioniq 5 offers flexible usage of space through various seating positions such as relaxation seats with leg support; and moving console for enhanced versatility.
