2024 Hyundai Creta EV Top 5 Features We Know

Hyundai to launch its upcoming Creta with an electrified powertrain, all details and what we know so far

Hyundai is a globally active brand and has been at the forefront of the EV revolution not only in India but worldwide. In a world increasingly inclined towards EVs, Hyundai made its mark in India by introducing the Kona EV, its first electric offering for the Indian market. Years later, the company took a significant step forward with the launch of its premium EV model, the Ioniq 5. The Kona EV faced challenges initially due to the relatively early stage of EV adoption in India.

Times have changed and the Nexon EV has instilled confidence among Indian consumers that EVs are indeed viable in our country. This transformation has been recognized by other brands as well, leading to a surge in the introduction of more EVs in the Indian market. Some manufacturers have converted their internal combustion engine (ICE) models into EVs, while others have introduced purpose-built electric cars.

For Hyundai, the Creta stands out as one of its best-selling SUVs. It’s no surprise that an EV version of the Creta is in the works. But what specifications can we expect from this electrifying addition? Let’s delve into the details.

We’ve already encountered spy images of the Creta EV during its testing phase, and we’ve covered these details in our previous reports. The test mule was spotted during a charging session in Chennai near Hyundai’s manufacturing plant. Notably, the test mule didn’t have a dedicated charging port, and the charging cable was plugged into the hood. This indicates that the Creta EV is still in its early developmental stages.

2025 Hyundai Creta EV – Specifications

When it comes to the battery pack, the Creta EV may feature the same battery pack as the Hyundai Kona. The Hyundai Kona packs a 39.2 kWh lithium-ion battery pack that delivers a driving range of 452 Km and approx 300-320 km in real-world driving conditions. The upcoming 2025 Hyundai Creta EV will deliver 134bhp and 395Nm of peak torque. As a result, the EV could accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph in 9.7 seconds.

The battery pack comes with an 8-year/160,000-Km warranty and supports both AC and 50kW DC fast charging. With AC charging, the battery can be fully charged from 0% in about 6 hours, while DC fast charging can take it from 0% to 80% in approximately an hour.

Considering that the Creta and Kona EV share similar dimensions, Hyundai will transplant the Kona battery pack into the Creta EV. However, the launch of the Creta EV is still some years away and given the continuous evolution of EV technology, Hyundai might tweak the power figures to offer even more range.

The test mule spotted during testing was based on the current ICE version of the Creta. Hyundai may be using the current Creta to test various components. However, the Creta EV could be based on the Creta facelift, featuring unique EV-specific elements to differentiate it from the ICE variant.

The same principle could apply to the interior design and feature list as well. The Creta is already a feature-rich SUV, and with the upcoming facelift, we can expect an even longer list of features. Knowing Hyundai’s penchant for innovation, the Creta EV may indeed come with additional features beyond those of the Creta facelift.

2025 Hyundai Creta EV – Launch and Pricing

Hyundai will likely subject the vehicle to extensive testing and refinement as the EV is in the development stage. For those eagerly awaiting the Hyundai Creta EV, it appears you’ll have to exercise patience until approximately 2025. The Hyundai Creta EV will cost around Rs. 20-25 Lakh (Ex-showroom).
