The E-GMP will also have the capability of achieving 0-100 kmph in 3.5 seconds and achieve a top speed of 260 kmph.

The platform also features the world’s first mass-produced integrated drive axle (IDA) and a five-link rear suspension system which is typically used in mid and large-sized vehicles. 

The brand has also revealed that E-GMP architecture is capable of delivering a maximum range of over 500km on a single charge. 

The brand has also announced that from 2021 the E-GMP will underpin the IONIQ 5, Kia Motor Corporations dedicated EVs lined-up for 2021 and other models that will be revealed in the future.
