Hyundai Creta, Creta EV India launch details, Creta EV interior, range and battery

Hyundai has actively been testing the Creta EV in India that will debut globally by late 2024. Previous spy shots have hinted at a design that’ll be largely similar to the ICE-powered Creta. On the inside, the Creta EV will get unique touches, some of which could be borrowed from the new Kona EV sold abroad.

Hyundai Creta EV: what all will be different?

What’s certain is that the Creta EV will have a slightly different interior to the existing ICE-powered variants of the Creta. We expect an all-new three-spoke steering wheel similar to the latest Kona EV sold abroad instead of the four-spoke unit on the regular Creta. In addition, the drive selector lever is expected to be repositioned from its conventional location on the centre console to the right side of the steering wheel column; again, similar to the Kona EV. This will also necessitate a redesign of the centre console.

The Creta EV is expected to retain the twin-screen setup for the infotainment and instrument cluster, along with a bunch of physical controls for easy accessibility. There, however, could be more features on offer, and it could use an updated software interface as well.

As for the exterior design, it will be largely similar to the recently facelifted Creta. However, there will be a few EV-specific touches that will be unique like a closed-off ‘grille’, all-new front and rear bumpers, and new aero-optimised alloy wheels as seen in previous shots.

Hyundai Creta EV range, battery

As we’ve reported earlier, the Creta EV will be powered by a 45kWh battery pack. While this may put it at a disadvantage when compared to the MG ZS EV (50.3kWh) and the upcoming Maruti eVX (48-60kWh), the Creta EV’s battery will be larger than the Nexon EV LR’s 40.5kWh unit.

Our sources had also mentioned that the Creta EV’s electric motor will be shared with the latest-gen, entry-level Kona EV available overseas: a single, front-axle-mounted motor producing about 138hp and 255Nm of torque is expected to propel the Creta EV. The platform will be derived from the regular ICE-powered Creta, albeit with certain modifications.

Upon launch, the Creta EV will see competition from the Maruti Suzuki eVX (and its Toyota counterpart) which are also due to go on sale at about the same time, as well as the upcoming Tata Curvv EV.
