At the Guangzhou Motor Show, Hyundai has unveiled the next version of the Mistra compact sedan, which will be available for the first time as a purely electric version. The model has been marketed exclusively in China since 2013 and is built by Beijing Hyundai, a joint venture between BAIC Motor and Hyundai.
As an electric car, the Hyundai Mistra will have an electric motor with 135 kW and a torque of 310 Nm as well as a battery with 56.5 kWh storage capacity. The manufacturer says this will enable the vehicle to travel 520 kilometres according to the NEDC cycle. With fast-charging, the electric Mistra’s battery can be charged from 30 to 80 per cent in 40 minutes. Otherwise, Hyundai states the charging time as 9.5 hours.
The 2021 model is a redesign of the current Mistra, but not a new generation. Nevertheless, with dimensions of 4.70 metres long, 1,185 metres wide, 1,460 metres high and a wheelbase of 2,770 metres, the relatively large battery fits easily into the chassis. The Hyundai Mistra is positioned between the Hyundai Elantra and the Hyundai Sonata.
