A test mule of the Creta EV has been spotted testing in India with an ADAS sensor installed on the front bumper. The SUV has several EV-specific features, including a closed-off grille, a front fender-mounted charging port, and aero alloy wheels. Besides this, it closely resembles its ICE counterpart, featuring roof rails, split LED headlamps, interconnected LED taillamps, and a rear spoiler with an integrated stop lamp. Though no interior images are available at this time, we anticipate the SUV to have the same amenities as its counterpart. The electric Creta is expected to debut late this year and hit the market by 2025, with a starting price of Rs 15 lakh (ex-showroom). Let's look at possible features of the battery-operated Creta.
