Hyundai Reveals New Dedicated EV Platform “E-GMP”

Hyundai was already leading mainstream automakers with numerous EVs and this new platform will take them to the next level


  • The range will be over 500 km (WLTP) on a single charge.

  • High-performance models will reach 100 km/h in under 3.5 seconds.

  • Hyundai Group plans to launch 23 news EVs by 2025.


Hyundai’s all-new dedicated EV platform, known as the E-GMP, will serve as a building block for the group’s upcoming onslaught of new EVs. This includes the already announced IONIQ 5 as part of the new EV sub-brand as well as Kia’s first fully-dedicated EV that will be introduced next year.

The E-GMP will make Hyundai’s EV plans come together via modularization and standardization meaning this same platform will be used for all vehicle segments, from compact cars to SUVs. The E-GMP is a RWD-driven platform however future customers will have the option of selecting AWD.

Hyundai Introduces IONIQ As Its EV Sub-Brand

The platform’s charging performance, thanks to its 800V charging capability as standard and enabled 400V charging, means that 350 kW charging stations will make short work of putting the vehicle back on the road. With this capacity, high-speed charges up to 80% will require only 18 minutes, adding up to 100km of driving range in just five minutes.

The platform’s driving performance also promises to be epic. A high-performance vehicle will be capable of accelerating from 0 to 100km/h in less than 3.5 seconds on its way to a maximum speed of 260km/h.

Of the 23 EVs coming to market, 11 will be dedicated EVs, or uniquely offered as electric vehicles. These include the IONIQ 5, 6, and 7, which will all be launched by 2024.
