ET ‘Mighty’ just work

Riley Riley

Hyundai’s Mighty electric truck, that’s right the Mighty one is finally on sale — priced from $150,000 plus on-roads.

Mighty will be offered initially in cab-chassis form only, with a factory alloy tray available as an option – or customers can fit their own.

The tray measures 4200mm long and 2353mm wide and is offered as a ready-to-go solution for customers looking for a versatile, zero emissions truck.

A Pantech version will follow and a tipper is under consideration.

The 6140mm long electric truck has a 3300mm wheelbase and can deliver a 4050kg payload, less the weight of a fitted body — with a GVM of 7300kg.

It has a loaded electric range of up to 200km and could be the ideal zero-emissions workhorse for metropolitan and last-mile deliveries.

With a 120kW/320Nm electric motor and 114.5kWh battery system, with drive to the rear axle via a single-speed reduction gear turning a prop shaft.

Final drive ratio is 5.375:1.

The truck can be charged from 8 to 100 per cent in under 71 minutes.

For faster turnarounds, a 20-minute fast charge while unloading could add about 100km of range.

Two-stage regenerative braking allows it to recover up to 33 per cent 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.

Mighty 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 the truck reach its destination for charging.

It comes 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, with service priced over 12 years/240,000km.

Standard scheduled servicing costs for the first five years/100,000km amount to less than $4300.

Standard kit includes auto dusk-sensing headlights, LED DRLs, heated exterior mirrors, forward collision avoidance camera and radar, and a lane keep assist system.
