Hyundai introduced the disclosing of an all-new high-performance sports activities automobile RM20e (Hyundai N model prototype) and the presentation of the Prophecy concept EV (that captures the model’s electrification path) at Auto China 2020 in Beijing (September 26 – October 5).

The RM20e is a brief identify for the Electrified RM20e Racing Midship Sports activities Automobile prototype, which appears to be the next-stage of the Hyundai Veloster N ETCR venture, shown in September 2019.

Hyundai explains that the RM20e is predicated on the RM improvement platform for future N model merchandise and is impressed by the electrified TCR racecar.

The RM20e is provided with a 60 kWh battery pack, however the South Korean firm does not reveal the vary (or time on the monitor). The pack is 605 V nominal (705 V peak) and prepared for quick charging at 800 V chargers.

The quad-motor rear-wheel drive system rated at 596 kW (810 horsepower) and 960 Nm (708 lb.-ft.) of torque peak, can take it from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in lower than three seconds, and to 200 km/h (124 mph) in lower than 10 seconds.

“This RM platform facilitates an engineering “rolling lab” for testing excessive efficiency applied sciences, with excellent connection to the tarmac in any respect speeds and driving situations.”

“RM20e makes use of its midship-based motor placement and rear-drive structure to attain the traction required for this degree of acceleration. RM20e combines racecar-like ranges of efficiency, steadiness, braking and grip whereas retaining daily-driver quietness, responsiveness and road-going functionality.”

An attention-grabbing factor is that Rimac Automobili (partially owned by the Hyundai Motor Group) participated within the improvement of the RM20e. The 2 firms are working collectively on high-performance EV and FCV prototypes (the hydrogen gasoline cell model was not but unveiled).

“Hyundai’s latest funding and strategic partnership with Rimac Automobili has facilitated co-development of each BEV and FCEV prototypes. The electrified RM platform will proceed to evolve together with the expansion of this RIMAC partnership.”

On account of these developments, in the long term, Hyundai’s efficiency N model goes to be electrified, providing “supercar-level efficiency”.
