Hyundai, an established name in the electric car market in India, has limited its product line to the Kona and Ioniq 5 EVs, which are intended for the premium market. This is expected to change in 2025 when the mass-market Creta EV is introduced.

The distinct design components of the Creta EV, in contrast to its petrol-powered predecessor, were made visible in recent spy photographs. 

Based on the upcoming Creta facelift, which is scheduled to arrive on January 16, 2024, LG Chem, Hyundai’s global lithium-ion battery partner, will supply the 45kWh battery pack for the Creta EV. 

The current platform will be utilized, but adjustments will be made to make enough space for the electric drivetrain.

Despite having a bigger battery than the long-range Nexon EV model (40.5kWh), the Creta EV’s battery pack is smaller compared to its competition, the MG ZS EV (50.3kWh) and the soon-to-be Maruti eVX (48kWh and 60kWh possibilities).

Additionally, the electric motor will be a single unit installed on the front axle, producing 138 horsepower and 255 Nm of torque. It shares this motor with the most recent entry-level Kona EV globally.

Pricing announcements are planned in early 2025, with the Creta EV slated to make its global debut in the second half of 2024. Its main rivals will be the all-electric Maruti eVX and the MG ZS EV.
