Hyundai Inster: what does the teaser show

On the Inster, the round headlamp setup from the Casper will be retained with some tweaks and with circular LED DRLs. The teaser also reveals its fully digtial driver's display and a few other design bits. While Hyundai is yet to reveal the specifications of the EV powertrain, it has been confirmed that the Inster will offer a claimed 315km range on one full charge. For reference, the Tata Tiago EV in India offers a similar ARAI-certified range.

Hyundai Inster global launch timeline

The Inster will be shown to general public for the first time at the at the Busan International Motor Show 2024 in Korea which will be held between June 27 and July 7. The e-SUV is expected to be launched in Hyundai’s home country first, followed by a European launch. 

Hyundai Inster/Casper Electric coming to India?

That’s a million-dollar question to which the answer is not yet known. What is known is that Hyundai Motor India’s EV programme for India will see it begin production of its first locally produced zero-emissions model – the Creta EV – at the end of 2024 from its Chennai manufacturing plant. By 2030, there are plans to produce another five EVs in India.

These six battery electric vehicles (BEVs) from Hyundai Motor India will span different segments and body styles. They willl be designed to cater to different segments like the mass-market as well as mass premium market, and will include an SUV, sedan and CUV (Compact Utility Vehicle).
