Hyundai Aims for Future Electric Vehicles to Produce 50% More Range Than Current Ones

Carbon emissions from cars contribute significantly to global warming. Most auto manufacturing companies started making electric cars to reduce these emissions. Consumers have started to embrace this change, and the demand for these vehicles is steadily increasing.

Hyundai Motor Group is one of the vehicle manufacturers looking to cement their position in the electric vehicle scene. Find out below how the Hyundai Motor Group is seeking to increase the efficiency of its electric cars.

The Hyundai Motor Group Makes a Major Announcement

The South Korean auto manufacturer announced on Unlock the Software Age (a global online forum) that it will introduce new electric vehicle platforms by 2025. These platforms will be known as eS and eM. Both platforms will be developed under Hyundai's Integrated Modular Architecture system.

The Integrated Modular Architecture system helps to modularize and standardize various electric vehicle parts. For instance, different electric vehicle models have varying electric motors and batteries. By standardizing these components, the auto manufacturer will use common components for all its electric vehicles, allowing it to expand its lineup.

The Integrated Modular Architecture will allow different vehicle segments to share components, reducing the time required for vehicle development processes such as planning, design, and manufacturing. The IMA will also significantly reduce manufacturing costs.

The eM platform will help to increase the company's electric vehicles' driving range on a single charge by 50 percent. When these changes come into effect, the upcoming Ioniq 6, which can travel up to 614 kilometers on a single charge, may now cover up to 921 kilometers. The Hyundai Motor Group also intends to develop the platform to support over-the-air (OTA) software updates and higher autonomous driving technology.

The eM platform will help to grow Purpose Built Vehicles. Usually, the Hyundai Motor Group refers to vehicles made for companies, rather than individual customers, as Purpose Built Vehicles. The cars will be made for logistics, delivery, and car-hailing companies.

The South Korean car maker also announced plans to allow customers to upgrade their vehicles' functionality and performance remotely. The user can perform these upgrades without having to visit a service center.

Some of the features the users can upgrade include convenience, security, safety, driving performance, and connectivity. Customers will be able to use this technology after the automaker transforms its cars into software-defined vehicles.
