The Hyundai IONIQ 5 and Kia EV6 use the Electric Global Modular Platform (E-GMP). This platform, which is specially designed by Hyundai for electric cars, has several advantages that are able to perfect electric vehicles made by Hyundai and Kia.
The first is a modular format that allows E-GMP to be applied to various types of cars such as sedans, SUVs, or maybe hatchbacks. Then with this modular system, Hyundai as a manufacturer can also develop a variety of cars more quickly and efficiently.
Not only that, the E-GMP platform is also able to improve performance in cornering conditions and driving stability at high speeds. Including by way of optimal weight distribution between the front and rear of the car.
Stability in E-GMP also comes from being able to put the battery as low as possible to achieve a good center of gravity. This platform is made of very high strength steel material, which surrounds the structure making it very sturdy.
The kinetic energy that arises during a collision, for example, will be absorbed efficiently so as to protect the battery in particular and the car in general.
E-GMP is claimed to be able to provide a number of benefits such as increased flexibility, powerful driving performance, increased driving mileage, strengthened safety features, and increased cabin and luggage area.
The platform is also capable of securing the battery through a support structure made of very high strength steel. Kinetic energy in the event of a collision can also be efficiently absorbed thanks to the support in the energy absorption section on the sides of the body and chassis. The center of the battery pack is also firmly attached to the vehicle body.
The E-GMP platform maximizes interior space through a long wheelbase, short front and rear overhangs, and a slim cockpit module. The battery pack embedded under the cabin floor can create a flat cabin floor so as to provide more legroom.
This E-GMP has a number of components to drive the car, including an electric motor, inverter, battery pack, VCMS (Vehicle Charging Management System), ICCU (Integrated Charging Control Unit), and VCU (Vehicle Control Unit).
