What is the Electric-Global Modular Platform?
Electric vehicles continue to become more and more popular, especially as gas prices rise all around the world. Many new car shoppers are looking for an efficient alternative to gasoline which attracts many of them to an electric vehicle (EV) or battery-electric vehicle (BEV). With battery technology making huge advancements over the last few years, it’s now easier to find affordable electric vehicles that can offer substantial driving ranges on a full charge. Hyundai, the parent company of Kia, has recently unveiled its new Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP), a dedicated battery electric vehicle (BEV) platform. The platform will serve as the core technology for the auto group’s next-generation BEV lineup.

The Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) is designed exclusively for BEVs and will provide various advantages that include increased development flexibility, increased driving range, powerful driving performance, more interior space for passengers and cargo, and strengthened safety features. Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP) is the culmination of years of research and development and brings together cutting-edge technologies. The BEV lineup for Kia will evolve and be strengthened by the new Electric-Global Modular Platform (E-GMP).
The E-GMP platform will maximize development flexibility through standardization and modularization allowing for rapid development of new products which can be used across all vehicle segments, including sedans, crossovers and SUVs. This new platform will also enable Kia to grow its EV lineup over a short period of time.
With a design that is meant to deliver exciting performance, maximize interior space and increase safety protection, the E-GMP will change the auto industry.
