Hyundai’s foray into the electric truck market is taking a step forward, with the pricing, servicing, and warranty details for the MIGHTY Electric truck recently unveiled. This electric truck model is geared towards Australian fleet owners and truck drivers seeking a light-duty, heavy commercial truck powered by an electric battery system.

Hyundai Motor Company Australia has identified six dealers within its network who will offer the MIGHTY electric truck for sale, starting at a price point of $150,000. This initial offering is in the form of a cab chassis, with the option to add a genuine alloy tray at an additional cost.

The MIGHTY Electric truck boasts a 240km range, even when fully loaded, making it a promising option for businesses engaged in last-mile or back-to-base operations with a focus on reducing emissions. 

The MIGHTY Electric truck is equipped with a permanent magnet synchronous motor capable of generating 120kW of power and 320Nm of torque. It powers the rear axle via a single-speed reduction gear that drives a propeller shaft. With a maximum speed of 100kph, the truck can recharge efficiently, accepting up to 6.6kW of AC power or 100kW of 800V DC fast-charging power using a CCS2 combo charging port. This allows for a charging time from 8 to 100 percent in approximately 71 minutes, and a 20-minute fast charge during unloading stops can add around 100km of range.

In terms of its specifications, the MIGHTY Electric truck, with a length of 6,140mm, a wheelbase of 3,300mm, and a width of 2,353mm, offers a Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) of 7,300kg. Hyundai has plans to release a pantech box body style as a factory option in the near future.

Customers can expect peace of mind with a 5-year/200,000km warranty and an 8-year/400,000km battery warranty for this electric truck. Maintenance is on a 12-month service schedule or every 20,000km, whichever comes first, with estimated costs for the first five years or 100,000km totaling around $4,300.
