Hyundai has begun to build a prototype of its first compact SUV (SUV) on the Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP). In the future, the platform will serve exclusively as a basis for electric vehicles. Current models such as Hyundai Kona Elektro and the Hyundai Nexo are currently being created on the basis of the existing combustion platform. The prototype of the E-SUV based on E-GMP should be presented in December.

A first pilot vehicle is expected in June next year. It is assumed that Hyundai, like other car manufacturers, also needs three to six months to bring the series to the series after the appearance of his pilot car, at the beginning of 2021 with the first series electro-SUV based on the Electric Global Modular Platform can count on.

According to first assumptions, it will be a compact SUV that looks like a Crossover commercial vehicle (CUV) and can cover about 450 kilometers with a single charge.

According to the report, the development of a platform for electric cars has reached its final phase by Hyundai Motor. Furthermore, you can choose to select the main supplier for the battery cells. To what extent you leave here to a supplier or the orders awards several suppliers, has not been communicated so far.

The platform will lay the foundation for the development of technology for pure electric cars from Hyundai Motor. Hyundai Motor has taken the first step to securing competitiveness and takes away from the strategy, which has hitherto heavily on fuel cell vehicles. In certainly, part of the more than 35 billion euros, which Hyundai and Kia want to invest in their future in the next five years, will flow into the new platform.
