Mighty entry to EV market unveiled for Brisbane fans

A huge array of battery and hydrogen fuel cell EVs are set for display at the 2023 Brisbane Truck Show, with Korean brand Hyundai the latest to unveil plans to launch a new EV at the upcoming event.

Hyundai Motor Company Australia will enter the electric commercial vehicle market with the arrival of the 4×2 Mighty electric truck, which will be shown for the first time in public in Brisbane.

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.

It is quiet and smooth to drive and comes with many safety and comfort features, including forward collision-avoidance assist, lane departure warning and electronic stability control.

Trucks displayed at the Brisbane show will include a flatbed and a pantech box, with further body options available once sales commence.

The Hyundai Mighty electric truck is 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.

Deliveries begin mid-year via a national network of commercial vehicle dealers.

A five-year/200,000km vehicle warranty and eight-year/400,000km battery warranty are standard.
