Hyundai's all-new electric car is set to go into production from 2023 onwards. The new electric car from the Korean car manufacturer will source its powertrain from the American multinational automotive supplier, BorgWarner.
For this, Hyundai has recently signed a deal with BorgWarner to source the powertrain for its future electric car. This news was confirmed by BorgWarner and it disclosed that the Korean automobile manufacturer plans to launch a new electric car a couple of years down the line.
Speaking about the upcoming electric car from Hyundai, it will be a compact car designed to be affordable and easy to use for daily needs. With this purpose in mind, the new electric car from Hyundai will feature BorgWarner's latest integrated electric drive module, which combines the motor and gearbox into one bolt-in unit.
As per BorgWarner, this clever design allows for a compact dimension with the added advantage of weight savings over the conventional electric powertrain setup. According to sources, this upcoming electric car from Hyundai is most likely to be anywhere between 3.5 to 3.7 metres in length, whereas the BorgWarner sourced electric motor will produce a healthy 135kW (181hp) of peak power.
If you are puzzled with the rather ‘meaty' 181hp from the electric motor, don't be alarmed, as it will be dialled back significantly to produce around 100hp. This power reduction will be taken care of by the modular inverter that comes with the BorgWarner powertrain setup.
This will make the upcoming electric car from Hyundai behave like a well-trained Labrador rather than a Grey Hound on steroids. Since Hyundai already has electric cars, it is most likely to use the same 400v architecture from its Kona electric car.
However, being a compact car, the Korean car manufacturer's upcoming electric car is most likely to ditch the larger 64kW battery pack from international-spec Hyundai Kona EV in favour of the smaller 39.2kW battery pack seen on the Indian-spec Hyundai Kona EV.
This setup along with the use of a more efficient motor may allow Hyundai's upcoming compact electric car to have a theoretical range close to 500kms since the India-spec Kona EV's ARAI figures are rated at 452kms.
However, in the real world scenario, expect the range on a full charge to hover around 350kms, which itself is astonishing. Though there is no news regarding Hyundai's plans to launch this vehicle in India, we believe Hyundai will launch this vehicle in India within a short period from its international launch.
This is because, the Korean manufacturer is one of the first brands in India to give Indian consumers a taste of EVs, and Hyundai is a company who is desperately trying to be No1 in India for quite some time and it is highly unlikely that they will leave no stones unturned.
Thoughts About The Hyundai Small Electric Car Production To Start In 2023
There is no doubt that Hyundai's new electric car will be a great addition to both the International and Indian lineup of its cars. The new car will also help Hyundai set its foot firmly on the new upcoming all-electric car segment, and for India, it may also help Hyundai dominate a new breed of car users in India.
