Hyundai Motor Group (Hyundai, Kia and Genesis manufacturers) has formally unveiled its all-new, devoted electrical automobile platform: Electrical – International Modular Platform (E-GMP).

Creating story…

Will probably be used within the next-generation fashions, ranging from 2021. By 2025, the corporate intends to launch 23 all-electric automobiles, together with 11 devoted ones. Complete gross sales will then attain 1 million.

Let’s bounce to particulars, because the presentation may be very promising and is likely to be very aggressive.

Initially, the E-GMP shall be very versatile to deal with varied forms of automobiles, from sedans, via CUVs to SUVs. Will probably be additionally utilized in each mainstream fashions and high-performance autos.

The South Korean producer did quite a bit to guarantee that the E-GMP is modular, standardized and complete to suit varied wants. No less than, in principle, it ought to simplify the method of growing and producing new BEV fashions, in addition to decrease the prices.

The plan is to ship “wonderful driving dynamics and excellent effectivity” in addition to rather more inside house (due to an extended wheelbase, brief overhangs and slim cockpit module and a flat ground).To enhance consolation, the corporate will use a five-link rear suspension system.

“Designed completely for BEVs, E-GMP offers varied benefits in comparison with the Group’s present platforms, which have every been engineered predominantly to accommodate inner combustion engines. Advantages embrace elevated improvement flexibility, highly effective driving efficiency, elevated driving vary, strengthened security options, and extra inside house for occupants and baggage.”

Hyundai Motor Group mentioned that the E-GMP will permit providing fashions with:

  • a most vary of over 500 km (311 miles) on a single cost beneath the WLTP cycle
  • 0-100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration in lower than 3.5 seconds
  • prime velocity of as much as 260 km/h (162 mph)
  • 80% recharge must be potential in 18 minutes at 350 kW (800 V)

After all, not all fashions shall be maxed out to have the highest numbers, however that is what is feasible.

  • Rear-wheel drive (RWD) or dual-motor all-wheel drive (AWD) setup
    – the bottom is a single-motor RWD model
    – the AWD model has a further motor within the entrance, which may be bodily disconnected when not in use to enhance effectivity
    “The all-wheel-drive system consists of an EV transmission disconnector, which may management the connection between the extra motor and entrance wheels, and change between two-wheel and all-wheel drive modes to boost effectivity by providing the best degree of energy or efficiency for present driving situations.”
  • “the world’s first mass-produced built-in drive axle (IDA)
    – consist motor, inverter, single-speed transmission in a single compact module
    – new high-speed electrical motor (we guess it will likely be as much as 20,000 rpms) with hairpin winding
    “This ensures highly effective efficiency by elevating the motor’s most velocity by as much as 70 % in comparison with present motors. The high-speed motor is smaller than different motors whereas offering comparable efficiency, and it provides efficiencies in each house and weight.”
  • silicon carbide (SiC) energy electronics (inverter) for the traction motors
    “This motor can improve system effectivity by round 2~3 %, which suggests the automobile may be pushed for about 5 % longer on the identical battery vitality.”

  • quick charging functionality of as much as 350 kW (at 800 V)
    80% recharge must be potential in 18 minutes whereas replenishing 100 km (62 miles) of vary ought to take round 5 minutes (not less than in the best circumstances we guess)
  • Built-in Charging Management Unit (ICCU) – multi-charging (800V/400 V) and bidirectional
    – DC
    quick charging functionality at as much as 800 V as normal (permits to cost at 400 V degree as properly)
    “The multi-charging system is a world’s first patented know-how which operates the motor and the inverter to spice up 400V to 800V for secure charging compatibility.”
    – AC charging at 1- and 3-phase
    – a brand new vehicle-to-load (V2L) operate, to discharge vitality from the automobile battery with out extra elements (as much as 3.5 kW at 110/220V)

  • the battery pack mounted beneath the ground, between the axles
  • there isn’t a data in regards to the battery capability – we guess it could possibly be from round 50 to greater than 100 kWh relying on the configuration
  • all of the E-GMP will use the identical, standardized single sort of battery module (composed of pouch-type normal cells)
    “Moreover, a standardized battery system may be tuned to supply efficiency acceptable for a particular automobile phase, to maximise driving vary, or to satisfy varied buyer wants.”
  • the battery pack willo be probably the most power-dense system that Hyundai Motor Group has ever created:
    “That is partly due to its enhanced cooling efficiency, a results of a brand new separate cooling block construction which helps make the battery pack extra compact. With vitality density enhanced by round 10% in comparison with present EV battery know-how, the battery packs are lighter, may be mounted decrease within the physique, and liberate extra cabin house.”
  • optimum weight distribution between entrance and rear, mixed with a low heart of gravity
