Hyundai Creta, Creta EV price, range, rivals, Tata Curvv, Maruti eVX, Mahindra EV

Hyundai India will enter the mass-market EV space with the Creta. The all-electric midsize SUV has been spied testing again in South Korea, not too long after the SUV was caught testing in India. The electric version is based on the Creta facelift that launched in India in January; the interiors are also likely to be similar to the current Creta on sale, with some interior bits borrowed from the Ioniq 5. When it arrives by March 2025, the Creta EV will compete with Tata, Mahindra, Maruti and MG Motor.

By the time Hyundai launches the Creta EV, Tata’s Curvv EV would've been on sale for about 7-8 months, Mahindra XUV400 will have been available for a little over 2 years, MG’s ZS EV for a bit more than 5 years, and Maruti Suzuki will have just launched its born-EV, the eVX.

  2. Hyundai EV likely to be longest in class with the least width

A disclaimer first: Hyundai has yet to reveal the Creta EV’s official dimensions, but considering it’s based on the current Creta, we expect the electric version to be similar in size. This means that the Creta EV is expected to be the longest EV, though its width is the least amongst the models here, which may indicate that it’ll have comparatively less shoulder room. The Hyundai’s wheelbase length is higher than the class median, but it is the Maruti with the longest wheelbase; that’s likely due to the eVX’s born-EV nature. All the other SUVs here will also come, or already come, with a petrol or diesel version, with the Curvv also reportedly getting a CNG option. It should also be noted that the Creta EV’s boot space is highly likely to drop below the standard Creta’s 433-litre figure.

Hyundai Creta EV vs rivals: range, battery

Hyundai Creta EV vs rivals: powertrain
Creta EV Curvv EV eVX ZS EV XUV400
Battery size 45kWh 48-60kWh 50.3kWh 39.4kWh
Range (ARAI) 450km (est) 400-500km (est) 400-550km (est) 461km 456km
Power 138hp 177hp 150hp
Torque 255Nm 280Nm 310Nm

As we’ve reported before, the Creta EV will be powered by an LG Chem-sourced 45kWh battery pack, with a real-world range of around 250km. Other than the Mahindra, the Hyundai is likely to have the smallest battery pack when compared to its rivals, though the ARAI-rated range is expected to be at par with its rivals. While the electric motors that will power the Curvv EV and eVX are still unknown, for now, it seems like the Creta EV will be the least powerful in the segment.

The Creta EV will likely share its features list with the standard midsize SUV, so in range-topping form, it’ll have all the same premium features. This will help it stand against its competition that will also be quite well-equipped. However, it does seem like the Mahindra XUV400 and MG ZS EV lag behind the Tata, Maruti and Hyundai.

Hyundai Creta EV vs rivals: price

While the Maruti’s born-EV status does mean it’ll likely be the most spacious inside, it also means that the eVX is likely to be the priciest of the lot, likely in the Rs 23 lakh-25 lakh bracket. Meanwhile, the Creta EV and Curvv EV's prices are expected to start lower, from Rs 20 lakh. The XUV400 will continue to be the most affordable midsize EV, priced between Rs 15.49 lakh-17.49 lakh, while the MG ZS EV is currently priced from Rs 18.98 lakh to Rs 24.98 lakh.

By 2026, Toyota’s version of the eVX, based on the Urban SUV concept, will also rival the Creta EV. Mahindra will also have a more direct EV rival to these midsize SUVs in the form of the BE.05 born EV.
