Hyundai is set to launch the Creta EV (electric vehicle) in India in January 2025, the company confirmed in its recent media call. The Creta EV is Hyundai India's first mass-market EV, which will be manufactured at the company's Chennai plant. It will enter production in the country by the end of this year, and since it shares many bits with the internal combustion engine-powered Creta, we expect Hyundai to build its upcoming EV alongside the standard Creta to keep costs in check. Despite it being nearly identical to the standard Creta, the Creta EV will stand out with its EV-specific design elements, including a closed-off grille with a front camera, revised front and rear bumpers, as well as a new pair of aero-optimised alloy wheels. It will also have a front-fender-mounted charging port.

The commonalities between the standard Creta and the all-electric Creta include quad-beam LED headlamps with new LED daytime running lights, connected LED tail lamps, and LED sequential turn signals.

Hyundai Creta EV: Interior

The interior of the Hyundai Creta EV, spotted for the first time in April 2024, is modelled on the lines of the Kona EV sold globally. Therefore, one can expect a twin-screen setup for the infotainment and instrumentation, in addition to an all-new, three-spoke steering wheel with a different-looking logo. Speaking of which, the drive selector lever is expected to be mounted on the right side of the steering wheel column. 

Other expected bits include a reworked centre console, a redesigned dashboard, a panoramic sunroof, ventillated front seats, and wireless charging. As far as safety goes, the Hyundai Creta EV will likely offer six airbags, a tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS), electronic stability control (ESC), ISOFIX mounts, a 360-degree surround camera, and Level 2 Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).

Hyundai Creta EV: Battery, Range

Though the Hyundai Creta EV's technical specifications are yet to be revealed, it will likely run on a 45kWh battery pack sending power to a front-mounted electric motor. The motor is expected to churn out 136bhp and 255Nm of torque. Also, the EV could come with fast-charging technologies. 

Hyundai Creta EV: Price, Rivals

Price-wise, the Hyundai Creta EV could range between Rs 15 lakh and Rs 30 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom). Once launched, it will compete with the MG ZS EV, the Mahindra XUV400, and the upcoming Maruti Suzuki eVX and Tata Curvv EV.
