Hyundai has confirmed that the Ioniq 5 will mark the India debut of the E-GMP.

Hyundai Motor India Limited announced the launch of its E-GMP (Electric Global Modular Platform) for the Indian market. The company also revealed that the upcoming Ioniq 5 will mark the India debut of this platform and will redefine the country's 'electric mobility lifestyle'.

Hyundai Motor India MD & CEO Unsoo Kim stated, 'As we continue to challenge possibilities and dynamics of mobility, our pursuit of innovation is perfectly reflected in the Electric Global Modular Platform – E-GMP. With the introduction of E-GMP to India, we will be able to provide customers with advanced battery electric vehicles, derived from a platform that is modular, scalable, and versatile.'

According to Hyundai, its E-GMP platform consists of a vehicle's chassis, which includes the battery, motor, and power electric system. The platform uses a cutting-edge battery pack, which is said to offer a long range. Additionally, the high-voltage battery can power numerous electrical equipment, thanks to the bi-directional charging connector. The platform's integrated charging control unit (ICCU), which is used to charge both the high-voltage battery and the auxiliary battery, is another noteworthy feature.

Hyundai emphasised the versatility of the new platform, which it may use to support various vehicle types. Vehicles built on this platform will have features like a level floor, a small cockpit, and a flexible yet roomy cabin.
