Hyundai Motor Company has launched the subsequent-technology electrified RM20e sports activities automobile to the world on the Beijing International Automotive Exhibition 2020. The RM nomenclature refers back to the N prototype mannequin’s “Racing Midship” rear-drive, midship powertrain configuration. This RM platform facilitates an engineering “rolling lab” for testing excessive efficiency applied sciences, with excellent connection to the tarmac in any respect speeds and driving situations.

In 2012, Hyundai launched into challenge RM to develop and join new excessive-efficiency motorsports applied sciences with future N fashions. Since the initiation of challenge RM, there was a progressive evolution of the RM collection, together with: RM14, RM15, RM16 and RM19. In 2019, Hyundai’s first electrical race automobile was developed for the eTCR electrical touring automobile collection: ‘Veloster N eTCR’, unveiled on the Frankfurt Motor Show. RM fashions have progressively undergone in depth testing to validate superior applied sciences, observe their efficient enhance in efficiency, and enhance them for utility in future N fashions.
“Our new electrified RM20e pushes the proven RM platform forcefully into a new, environmentally-focused decade of the 21st century, stretching the performance envelope of electrification on normal road environments,” mentioned Albert Biermann, President and Head of Research and Development Division at Hyundai Motor Group. “RM20e represents a revolutionary new chapter of electrified performance for the Racing Midship series, and our N engineers continue to garner valuable insights in the arena of zero-emission performance dynamics.”
The RM20e will get a 799 bhp churning electrical motor with 960 Nm of torque. It is anticipated to go from a standstill to 100 kmph in lower than three seconds. And 0-200 kmph is finished in 9.88 seconds. RM20e makes use of its midship-based mostly motor placement and rear-drive structure to realize the traction required for this stage of acceleration. RM20e combines racecar-like ranges of efficiency, stability, braking and grip whereas retaining day by day-driver quietness, responsiveness and street-going functionality.

Hyundai’s current funding and strategic partnership with Rimac Automobili has facilitated co-improvement of each BEV and FCEV prototypes. The electrified RM platform will proceed to evolve together with the expansion of this RIMAC partnership. Further, Hyundai Motor Group has set a strategic plan to deploy 44 eco-pleasant fashions by 2025, taking the Hyundai N model into the forefront of environmental accountability.
