The Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Ioniq 6 EVs already have one of the best driving ranges in its segment, but Hyundai isn’t stopping there. Hyundai has announced that it’s working on a new EV platform that will have a 50 percent longer driving range than today’s current EVs.

The Hyundai Group will will launch new EVs in 2025 based on its two new EV platforms, eM, and eS. The new EV platforms will be created under the Group’s Integrated Modular Architecture (IMA) system. The eM platform is being developed specifically for EVs across all segments and will provide a 50 percent improvement in driving range. The eM platform is also being developed to support Level 3 or higher autonomous driving technology and OTA software update features.

The Group’s eS platform will be developed as an EV ‘skateboard’ exclusively for Purpose Built Vehicles (PBVs), with a fully flexible structure for business applications, like delivery trucks and ride-hailing vehicles.

“In 2025, Hyundai Motor Group will present vehicles with two platform types: eM, a passenger EV-dedicated platform; and eS, an exclusive platform for Purpose Built Vehicles,” said Paul Choo, Executive Vice President of Head of Electronics & Infotainment Development Center of Hyundai Motor Group. “These new platforms are evolving under Hyundai Motor Group’s ‘Integrated Modular Architecture’, which will lead to further standardization and modularization of core components of electric vehicles, such as batteries and motors, while offering advantages in sectors additional to electric vehicles.”
