Hyundai Debuts i10 Electric Car in India
Hyundai Motor India Ltd (HMIL) on Wednesday unveiled the electric version of its compact car -i10- at the Auto Expo 2010 and said it may bring the car to the Indian market in the "near future". HMIL director (marketing sales) Arvind Saxena said the i10 Electric is "considered a breakthrough in the alternative fuel vehicle segment. It is a zero-emission urban commuter vehicle". Slated for a limited series production run in 2010 in Hyundai's home market of South Korea, the i10 Electric can cover 160 km with a single battery charge and touch a top speed of 130 km an hour.
Saxena said, "We hope the heightened interest in electric vehicles will present us with a huge opportunity to bring in EV technology to the Indian market in the near future." The i10 Electric made its world debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, 2009 and is a culmination of decades of investment in research and development (R&D), he added.
Powered by a highly efficient 49kWh electrical motor and a 16 kWh battery, the i10 Electric uses advanced LiPoly (Lithium-Ion-Polymer)technology with numerous advantages over other batteries.
