Hyundai’s RM20e Prototype Is An 810HP EV Made For The Race Track

Kicked off in 2012, Hyundai’s “Project RM” is a dedicated research division tasked with developing future generations of high-performance electrics. Last year the project gave way to the South Korean conglomerate’s Veloster N eTCR racer, though Hyundai has now revealed the latest vehicle to come from its proton-powered motorsport division with the even more impressive RM20e Prototype.

Part of a larger overall effort to churn out nearly four-dozen “eco-friendly” models by 2025 under the “Hyundai N” banner—with the “N” being a nod to Namyang, where Hyundai’s global R&D center has been located since 1995, as well as the brand’s European test track of choice, the Nürburgring—the RM20e features a mid-mounted, 596kW electric motor (that translates to 810hp) that affords a whopping 708ft-lbs of torque. In addition to allowing for sub-three-second 0-60mph runs and 0-125mph times in under 10, the RM20e Prototype’s zero-emissions powertrain places it on par with some of the most elite electric supercars on earth. What’s more intriguing than the prototype itself, is the production models that Hyundai expects the RM20e to influence, though only time will tell.
