Distinctive Design and Features:

The Creta EV is expected to sport a fresh look with design elements that distinguish it from its gasoline-powered sibling. A closed-off grille, aerodynamically optimized alloy wheels, and redesigned bumpers are just a few of the anticipated modifications. Inside the cabin, drivers can expect a modern aesthetic with a new steering wheel, a uniquely designed center console, and a conveniently placed drive selector on the steering column, similar to the Kona Electric and Ioniq 5 models.

Power and Performance:

Under the hood, the Creta EV will be powered by an electric motor sourced from the entry-level variant of the new-generation Kona Electric. This front-mounted motor will deliver an estimated 138 horsepower and 255 Nm of torque, drawing energy from a 45 kWh battery pack. While this battery capacity is slightly smaller than those found in competitors like the MG ZS EV and Maruti eVX, it is expected to offer a competitive range and performance suitable for city and highway driving.

Creta EV’s Market Competition and Future Outlook:

The Creta EV is poised to enter a rapidly growing EV market, facing competition from models like the Tata Curvv EV, MG ZS EV, and the upcoming Maruti eVX. Despite some production delays for the eVX, the Creta EV is positioned to be a strong contender, capitalizing on its established brand reputation and the growing demand for electric vehicles in India.

Hyundai’s commitment to electric mobility extends beyond the Creta EV. The company plans to launch a mass-market compact EV in 2026, further solidifying its presence in the Indian EV landscape. By leveraging insights gained from the sales of the Ioniq 5 and Kona Electric, Hyundai aims to introduce a total of five EVs in India by 2030.
