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.

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

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

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.

help the truck reach its destination for charging.

Servicing intervals are set at 12 months or 20,000km, whichever comes first, with service
