At the digital unveiling of the all-new Tucson this week, on a world map, Hyundai shaded the countries it plans to launch the Tucson (long wheelbase in green and short wheelbase in blue), leaving out India and Brazil.
Seon Seob Kim the MD & CEO of the company’s Indian subsidiary said that the company has received a tremendous response for the Hyundai Kona Electric and is working on technology for more affordable electric cars.
Hyundai Motor Group, the parent company of Hyundai, could be envisioning a fourth brand in its portfolio – Ioniq. Ioniq is already moving on from being a model series to a sub-brand, and could further turn into a separately established company.
Just days after Hyundai announced its Ioniq sub-brand for its next-gen electric vehicles, a report from thestraitstimes.com has revealed that Hyundai plans to make an electric vehicle plant in Jurong, Singapore.
The Hyundai Ioniq 5 EV is inspired by the Hyundai Pony model (produced between 1975 and 1994) and is the first car to be built on the Hyundai Motor Group’s E-GMP (Electric Global Modular Platform), which is Hyundai’s equivalent of the VW MEB Platform.
