Hyundai Plan To Launch 6 EVs In India By 2028

Hyundai recently elaborated on their plans for electric vehicles in India. They aim to launch 6 battery electric vehicles in India by the year 2028. They had earlier announced that they’ll bring 3 electric cars to India by 2025. Now, they’ve added 3 more to the list for the 3 years since 2025.

Hyundai Electric EV

E-GMP, or Electric - Global Modular Platform is exactly what the name suggests. It’s a platform dedicated to battery electric vehicles. Its modularity allows Hyundai to use it for EVs of various shapes, sizes and capabilities. They say that this platform can accommodate a battery of up to 77.4kWh with a 2-wheel-drive or 4-wheel-drive layout and it can sustain a top speed of 260kmph. So, we can’t rule out a flagship halo product with sportscar to establish Hyundai as a performance EV maker.

The Kona was the first Hyundai EV in India, which went on sale in 2019.
