Hyundai confirms pricing, servicing, warranty and dealer details for MIGHTY Electric truck.
- Hyundai Motor Company Australia announces local start of sales – along with pricing, specification and service details – for the first-ever MIGHTY Electric truck
- Sales of Hyundai’s light-duty, heavy commercial truck will begin immediately through a network of six appointed dealers
- The network is set to continue its expansion in the coming months
The Hyundai MIGHTY Electric truck is on sale now, priced from $150,000 plus government charges and on road costs. Initially MIGHTY Electric will be offered as a Cab Chassis, with a Hyundai Genuine Accessories Alloy Tray additional cost option available to be fitted at dealerships – or customers are free to fit their own bodies.
The Genuine Accessories Alloy Tray measures 4,200mm long and 2,353mm wide and is offered as an ideal ready-to-go solution for customers looking for a versatile, zero tailpipe emissions truck.
A Pantech box body will follow in due course.
The 6140mm long MIGHTY Electric truck has a 3300mm wheelbase and delivers an available 4050kg payload (less the weight of a fitted body), and a GVM of 7300kg.
The Hyundai MIGHTY Electric comes with a 5 Year/200,000km vehicle warranty and 8 Year/400,000km battery warranty.
Servicing intervals are set at 12 months or 20,000km, whichever comes first, and service pricing has been calculated out to 12 years/240,000km.
Standard scheduled servicing costs for the first five years/100,000km amount to less than $4300.
"The Hyundai MIGHTY Electric makes for the ideal last mile or back-to-base light-duty commercial truck, for businesses wanting to reduce their driving emissions,” said HMCA Chief Operating Officer, John Kett.
"The MIGHTY Electric is best suited to urban environments, with its zero driving emissions, a quiet electric motor and high energy efficiency at lower speeds. The smoothness and quietness of operation will help reduce driver fatigue and enhance road safety.
"When we previewed the MIGHTY Electric at the Brisbane Truck Show in May, we were overwhelmed by the level of serious interest in the vehicle from operators who were eager to sample the product. They were also encouraged that a well-known OEM such as Hyundai Motor Company Australia was moving into this market.
“There is no doubt that the era of zero driving emission commercial vehicles is upon us, and that Hyundai Motor Company Australia will deliver to customers a real-world, commercially viable product that meets their needs and aspirations,” said Mr Kett.
The Hyundai MIGHTY Electric is both efficient and powerful, using a permanent magnet synchronous motor generating 120kW of power and 320Nm of torque. Drive is to the rear axle via a single-speed reduction gear turning a propellor shaft. Final drive ratio is 5.375:1.
The MIGHTY Electric has a maximum speed of 100km/h, which is more than some EV trucks and makes motorway driving a safer and easier experience.
The Hyundai MIGHTY Electric comes standard with a large, class-leading 114.5kWh capacity lithium-ion (LFP) battery pack for a cab chassis, that provides the vehicle with up to 200km of range when loaded to the maximum GVM of 7300kg. The range test was performed in a tray body configuration with air conditioning turned on, while driving in typical Australian urban conditions.*
To recharge, the MIGHTY Electric will accept up to 6.6kW of AC power or an impressive 100kW of 800V DC fast-charging power using a CCS 2 combo charging port, enabling the MIGHTY Electric to charge from 8 to 100% in approximately 71 minutes1 – around the length of a good lunch break.
1Results achieved in test conditions using a 100kW 800V DC fast charger. Various real-world factors including battery temperature, ambient temperature and age and condition of the battery will affect charging time. Not compatible with 400V charging infrastructure.
For faster turnarounds, a 20-minute fast charge during an unloading stop could add around 100km of range.
The MIGHTY Electric is fitted with multiple driving features to optimise driving efficiency and make the driving experience as pleasant and safe as possible.
Two-stage regenerative braking allows the MIGHTY Electric to recover up to 33% of braking energy by lifting off the accelerator pedal. Stage 1 regenerative braking provides up to 0.07g of decelerative force, while the stronger stage 2 generates up to 0.14g. The front and rear drum service brakes are air actuated.
The MIGHTY Electric also features an ECO mode which reduces electricity consumption by limiting power output, a helpful feature that maximises range for longer drives where full power is not required. When the battery charge depletes, the battery management system intelligently works to help MIGHTY Electric reach its destination for charging.
While the MIGHTY Electric is a light-duty truck, it is not light-on for comfort or safety features. MIGHTY Electric has a long list of standard equipment including auto dusk-sensing headlamps, LED DRLs, heated exterior mirrors, forward collision avoidance camera and radar, and a lane keep assist system.
There’s also electro-hydraulic power steering, backed by a tilt and telescopically adjustable column, and a suspension seat for the driver, along with rotary shift-by-wire transmission control, and 24V power outlets and storage binnacles.
Driver favourites include cruise control, a 7-inch colour instrument cluster information screen directly in the driver’s line of view, plus a centrally mounted 7-inch display touchscreen infotainment centre, with rear view camera display.
The Hyundai MIGHTY Electric truck is fitted as standard with Hyundai SmartSense™, a series of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) designed to significantly reduce the likelihood of accidents and serious injury.2
Hyundai SmartSense comprises a high-tech Forward Collision-avoidance Assist system using both the forward-facing camera and radar to detect cars and pedestrians ahead and apply emergency braking to prevent a collision.
Additionally, Lane Departure Warning utilises the forward-facing camera to detect when the vehicle unintentionally leaves its lane and provides the driver with a warning to maintain safe driving.
Further safety systems include dual front airbags, hill start assist, traction control and the very handy rear view camera.
At launch, the Hyundai MIGHTY Electric will be available in Creamy White or Hyper Silver exterior colours, both paired with a hard-wearing grey cloth interior.
