Hyundai is set to headline a major array of new battery and hydrogen fuel cell electric trucks to be displayed at the 2023 Brisbane Truck Show, with the Korean brand set to be the latest brand to unveil plans for the launch of its new EV at the Brisbane Show.
As reported previously here in T&B News, Hyundai Motor Company Australia will assume responsibility for the distribution and sale of electric commercial vehicles marking its re-entry to the Australian commercial vehicle market with its Mighty light duty electric truck, after an ill fated attempt with diesel light trucks almost a decade ago.
Hyundai’s Mighty light duty electric truck will be shown for the first time in public at the upcoming Brisbane Show and will be rated at up to 7.3-tonnes GVM, with a payload of up to 3.5-tonnes and a laden range in excess of 200km, the Mighty is suited for final-mile deliveries for operators seeking a zero-tailpipe emission vehicle.
Hyundai says its electric Mighty will be equipped with with many safety and comfort features, including forward collision-avoidance assist, lane departure warning and electronic stability control, and will be powered by a 120kW, 320Nm traction motor fed by a 114.5kWh battery system with rapid DC charging capability that can replenish the batteries from 10 per cent to 100 per cent in under 70 minutes.
The Hyundai Mighty electric displayed at the Brisbane show will include a flatbed and a pantech box, with further body options available once sales commence.
Deliveries are set to begin in Australia around the middle of the year via a network of commercial vehicle dealers around the country.
