IONIQ5 will be Hyundai’s first model for India under a new platform


Mechanic Hyundai Engine India Ltd said on Thursday it would launch the Hyundai IONIQ5 as the battery electric vehicle (BEV) built on the electric global modular platform (E-GMP).

Our electric mobility campaign in India started in 2019 with the launch of India’s first electric SUV, the Hyundai KONA Electric. As we continue to challenge the possibilities and dynamics of mobility, our commitment to innovation is perfectly reflected in the E-GMP. With the introduction of E-GMP in India, we can provide customers with advanced battery electric vehicles derived from a platform that is modular, scalable and versatile.” Unsoo Kimsaid MD & CEO.

As the driving force behind the pump-to-plug revolution, Hyundai will pioneer the development of future electric vehicles with this dedicated BEV platform now coming to India with the Hyundai IONIQ 5.

According to Hyundai, the E-GMP platform consists of a vehicle chassis that includes the battery, engine and electrical system.

The battery system features an advanced long-range battery pack, while the bi-directional charging plug allows the high voltage battery to power various electronic devices.

The E-GMP also features an integrated charging control unit (ICCU) that charges both the high voltage battery and the auxiliary battery.

With modularization and standardization, different vehicles with different body types can be developed, the company added.
