A Bigger and Better Casper

The Inster EV takes the best aspects of the Casper subcompact city car and supercharges them. With a stretched platform, it offers more room for passengers and a larger battery, meaning you can go further on a single charge.

Two Powertrain Options for Every Driver

Hyundai is giving you options with the Inster EV. The base model packs a 96-horsepower motor and a 42kWh battery. It’ll get you from 0 to 100 km/hr (0 to 62 mph) in a respectable 11.7 seconds and has a top speed of 140 km/hr (87 mph). Expect a range of about 300 km (186 miles) on a full charge.

If you crave a little more pep, the higher-spec Inster EV delivers 113 horsepower and a 49kWh battery. This model extends your range to around 350 km (217 miles) and boasts a faster 0-100 km/hr time of 10.6 seconds, with a top speed of 150 km/hr (93 mph). Both versions utilize advanced nickel-cobalt-manganese (NCM) batteries and come standard with 85kW DC fast charging and a heat pump for efficient climate control.

Compact Yet Spacious

Don’t let its compact size fool you; the Inster EV is a masterclass in space efficiency. Measuring 3.8 meters long, 1.6 meters wide, and 1.6 meters tall, it’s slightly smaller than the Citroen eC3 but cleverly designed to maximize interior space. With five seats and a variety of interior configurations, you can easily adjust the Inster EV to your needs. Fold down the seats for hauling cargo or slide and recline the rear seats for extra legroom – the choice is yours.

Cutting-Edge Tech Inside

The Inster EV isn’t just about practicality; it’s packed with technology, too. Every model gets dual 10.25-inch displays – one for the instrument cluster and another for the infotainment system. You can even unlock and start the car with your smartphone. Talk about futuristic!

Safety First

Hyundai is serious about safety, and the Inster EV reflects that. It comes loaded with driver-assistance technologies like a 360-degree parking camera, adaptive cruise control, and a blind-spot monitoring system that projects a camera view onto the instrument panel when you signal a turn.

A New Era for Electric City Cars

The Hyundai Inster EV is poised to make a significant impact on the mainstream city EV market. Its combination of compact size, practical interior, advanced features, and affordability could make it a serious contender against rivals like the Citroen eC3 and Tata Punch EV.

While Hyundai hasn’t confirmed plans to launch the Inster EV in India just yet, its potential arrival would be a game-changer in the entry-level electric vehicle segment. Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting new addition to the Hyundai family.
