A 4x2 light-duty heavy vehicle applicable with a tray, tipper or pantech for last mile deliveries, the new-generation Hyundai Mighty Electric registers a GVM of up to 7.3 tons and a payload of about four tons (including the tray or body structure).
The MIGHTY Electric Truck has an estimated working all electric range of up to 200km when fully loaded, fully charged, and with the air conditioning running, figures validated by more than 5,000km of real-world testing in New South Wales, utilising a pre-production truck with a tray configuration.
When connected to an 800V ultra-rapid (DC) charger, the battery can be replenished from 8% to 100% in just 71 minutes. The 120kW/320Nm electric motor is powered by a 114.5kWh battery system, driving through a single-speed reduction gear transmission.
Indicative pricing suggests a retail price of around $150,000 (plus on-road costs) as a cab/chassis unit.
Built in Australia, the Mighty Truck will carry a 5-year/200,000km warranty, in line with ICE versions already in the market, according to Damian Prescott, corporate business sales senior manager.
The MIGHTY Electric will also be offered with a factory-fitted pantech or refrigerated pantech. In addition, Hyundai will offer a Genuine Accessory tray body as a cost option, which can be fitted at the port of entry.
By 2030, Hyundai Motor Group expects to present a total lineup of 31 EV models globally. The company is on track to achieve carbon neutrality by 2045, by neutralizing CO2
“The zero-emission truck market is gaining momentum in Australia, and as a key driver of EV adoption in the passenger and SUV market, bringing this vehicle to local truck operators is a logical step for us,” says Ted Lee, CEO Hyundai Motor Company Australia.
