Hyundai’s next-generation electric race car hints at the future of sporty electric vehicles
- It reached 62MPH in less than three seconds and was also ready to go to the streets.
The ambitions of modern electric sports cars did not end with subtle Veloster. The automaker launched an RM20e Racing Midship sports car.
This is not only expected to improve its racing plan but also reflects the “next generation” of the N-generation performance car, which is the company’s first “high-performance” electric sports car.
As you would expect from a racing electric car, it is powerful, but Hyundai also promises to provide a balanced design that can even be used on the street.
As the name suggests, the 810HP motor is located in the center of the body. The RM20e can not only reach a speed of 62MPH in less than three seconds but also a speed of 124MPH in 9.88 seconds.
It can also provide the traction, balance, and braking performance desired by the car. Even so, the design can still provide “Daily Driver Quiet” and responsiveness.
The machine also claims a top speed of over 155MPH. The battery capacity is only 60kWh, which is relatively small, not surprising considering the need for a lightweight design, but 800V fast charging helps it return to orbit relatively quickly.
Not surprisingly, Hyundai Motor uses RM20e as the backbone of its overall green transportation drive.
It hopes to provide 44 environmentally friendly models by 2025, obviously involving N sports cars.
Although they may not look as stylish as the prophetic concept, you will get more exciting options than a hybrid of ordinary cars and crossovers.
