In recent years, the electric car market has grown significantly and several brands have already announced their future strategies. THE Hyundai is one of them.

It has a very futuristic look and a powerful engine. The Global Electric Module Platform will also serve as the basis for other designs. One of them is a sedan Ioniq 6 (Hyundai Prophecy). Another example that can be seen in the coming years is the SUV based on Hyundai Seven Concept, presented at the Los Angeles Auto Show. This has a future look and shows future news. Of course, we must not forget that some models from Kia and Genesis use it E-GMP.

Jaehoon Chang also talked about the sales forecast. According to him, the brand’s ambition is to reach 220 thousand units (of electric cars) sold around the planet by the end of 2022. Thinking a little further, the director expects 1.7 million electric cars (hybrid and electric) in 2026. He even talked about the plans of sales for the next ten years.

“We are moving very aggressively in electrification towards carbon neutrality, first in Europe. By 2030, we expect almost 70 percent of our total sales to be net-zero in Europe (including electric and hydrogen vehicles). And by 2035, there will be 100% carbon neutrality in Europe. This will be followed by big markets like the US. Let’s continue this momentum around the world,” Hyundai’s CEO told Automotive News.

Many products have similar goals. And in the case of reaching 100 percent carbon neutrality in Europe, it goes against the European government’s plan to ban the sale of combustion vehicles in the European Union. Now, thinking about internal combustion engines, the brand says it will no longer invest in them. This investment will be used in technology and electricity supply.

Hyundai’s CEO was also asked about battery development. He said the brand has been working on next-generation battery technologies.

“I can’t say that. There is uncertainty in terms of timing. We are also working on other next generation battery technologies, not just solid state batteries. We work with Korean battery manufacturers because they are world class. Li-ion and lithium metal batteries are both under research and development.

Just like Toyota and Hondaa Hyundai it also has its first brand. He is called The beginning. Recently, you followed here on Garagem360 the launch of a new generation of sedan G90. One of their main examples. And it is also part of the plans to distribute electricity.

The expectation is that it will be a 100% electric brand in 2030. And one of these cars could be GV60. We are talking about the first 100% electric car of this brand. Its launch is scheduled for 2022. We can see that this is a very similar strategy to that of Toyota and Lexus. The Japanese automaker has already warned that all of its brand’s cars will be electric in 2030.
