Hyundai Motor Group has unveiled its "E-GMP (Electric-Global Modular Platform), a platform dedicated to next-generation electric vehicles that will be applied to electric vehicles next year.
The group introduced E-GMP's features and applied new technologies through "E-GMP Digital Discovery," which was held online on Dec. 2, including YouTube channel video and video press conferences.
E-GMP is Hyundai Motor Group's first independent development platform in 10 years since it entered the electric vehicle business.
At the event, Fayez Abdul Rahman, senior vice president of Hyundai Motor Group's Vehicle Architecture Development Center, said, "It is our first technical milestone. It is the foundation of Hyundai Motor Group's next-generation electric vehicle lineup."
Unlike conventional electric vehicles that utilize the platform of internal combustion engine cars, E-GMP is designed to optimize electric vehicles only.
The group explains that this enables new interior and exterior designs for cars, which have been impossible due to structural limitations.
