Does this mean that the upcoming ICE Creta FL 2024 will probably be the last ICE variant of the Creta?

I don't see any news or even rumour that there will ever be a 'next-gen' all new ICE Creta or even Seltos!

Don't think so. In India most manufactures will continue to provide ICE variants along with EV's, till such time infrastructure for Ev's mature and the contribution of EV sales is relatively close to its ICE variant. Do not see this happening here in the near future.

Re: Hyundai Creta EV in the works

At the same time as working on the Creta restyling project for markets such as India, Brazil and China, Hyundai is also developing an unprecedented purely electric version for the model.
The car has already been spotted in tests several times and goes by the codename SU2i EV internally.

Re: Hyundai Creta EV in the works

Hyundai Creta EV spied in India confirm that it is based on the facelifted model.

Hyundai Creta EV to share overall styling with facelift
Design changes will be EV-specific; to get new alloy wheels
Creta EV to get 45kWh battery pack and 138hp motor
Quote:
Creta EV will be powered by a 45kWh battery pack that will be supplied by LG Chem. 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 EVís battery will be larger than the Nexon EV long-rangeís 40.5kWh unit. Expect the Creta EVís real world range to be around 250km on a single charge.
Creta EVís 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 Hyundaiís third EV for India.

Re: Hyundai Creta EV in the works

This is great. Kona is now old and never got the update that it received in the overseas market. At the moment, if we need an EV, the only sensible choice is Tata or MG. Hyundai does not even enter the consideration set. Creta EV can bring a big change there.

Re: Hyundai Creta EV in the works

I think 45kWh is a tad disappointing battery size for the Creta EV. Given its size and shape, Creta EV may not match the MG ZS in terms of range. The 64kWh battery from the Kona/Niro would be better. Hyundai can probably undercut the Atto 3 by a good margin, even with a 64kWh battery.

Hyundai Creta EV spotted cold weather testing in Shimla

The Hyundai Creta EV has been spotted yet again. This time, the electric SUV was seen in Shimla during a cold weather test run.

The latest images showcase the Creta EV parked at a charging station in Sanjauli. Also, note that the test car has nicely bolstered front seats wrapped in white and grey upholstery.

The upcoming pure electric version of the Creta will be based on the facelift version launched this year. It gets the redesigned front fascia with the L-shaped LED DRLs, slim LED tail lamps and a light bar at the back. The Creta EV is expected to get a blanked-off grille and aero-optimized alloy wheels.

While technical details are unknown, the Creta EV will likely be powered by a 45 kWh battery pack and a front-mounted electric motor borrowed from the last-gen Kona EV.

Thanks to Rajdeep for sending these images in. Heartfelt gratitude for sharing them with other enthusiasts via this Team-BHP share page!

One thing can be confirmed from the above spy shot - the car will be called Creta Electric, and not Creta EV; notice the branding on the seat. ĎElectricí times for enthusiasts ahead

Re: Hyundai Creta EV in the works

Hyundai Creta EV continues testing; spotted in South Korea

The Hyundai Creta EV, based on the facelift version of the SUV, that was launched in India earlier this year, has been spotted testing once again. This time, the electric SUV was seen in the brand’s home market of South Korea.

The electric version of the Creta has a similar design to the ICE version. It has the same L-shaped LED DRLs but is likely to get a blanked-out grille. It also has aero-optimised dual-tone alloy wheels.

Inside, we can expect the Creta EV to get a dual-screen setup like the ICE version. It could be equipped with features such as dual-zone automatic climate control, ventilated front seats, a 360-degree camera and Level 2 ADAS.

Reports suggest that the Creta EV could use a 55-60 kWh battery pack, having a maximum range of around 500 km. It will power a front-mounted electric motor.

Re: Hyundai Creta EV in the works

Will this replace the Kona in India? The new Kona Electric in US has almost the exact dimensions of the Creta. It comes with two battery options 48kWh with 320kms and 65kWh with 420 kms range.

Given that there will be a lot of parts sharing, Hyundai can price it aggressively against MG EV.

Re: Hyundai Creta EV in the works

A slightly larger crossover (aka small SUV) is very welcome. In India, to be a practical family car, it has to carry the "full family" along with their luggage. Many would be chauffer driven- so the rear seat needs to be comfortable and spacious. Nether Kona EV, nor ZS EV satisfy the need. This one will.

Its nearest competitor, if it can be called that, would be the XUV400. However, if this is launched in early 2025, this will enter a pretty crowded field with Mahindra bEV (Jan 2025), Tata Harrier.ev, maybe even MG4 (though the last one is arguably a large hatchback).

It would be interesting to watch.

Re: Hyundai Creta EV in the works

Spot this vehicle on Friday(29th March 2024). Was sure it was Hyundai or Kia, tail lights looked very similar to Creta, but was confused, later thinking about the Alloys( with the aero efficient design for EVs) and also some research online confirmed it was the Creta EV.
Spot it in Jayanagar, Bangalore, Karnataka.

Re: Hyundai Creta EV in the works

Hyundai Creta EV spotted,

Quote:
The front profile gets a similar LED DRL setup as the new Creta facelift. We expect the front grille to be the same but it will be closed for the EV version. The side profile gets a new design for the alloy wheels which are more aerodynamic and EV friendly. At the rear, a similar LED tail lamp setup is available as the ICE version.
Quote:
On the inside, some major changes are expected. It will get the same dual-connected screen setup for the infotainment and instrument cluster. The major change will be the new steering wheel design which we've seen on the Hyundai EVs available in the global market. Also, the EV will get a steering stack-mounted drive mode selector.

Re: Hyundai Creta EV in the works

Looks nice. The steering wheel seems to be very Kia - esque. I hope that Hyundai doesn't go overboard with EV branding (looking at you Tata.ev).

The drive selector is a nice touch, but I personally think that it should've been placed nearer to the stalks.

P.S - Did Hyundai try to copy Tata's wheel design? Look at the Tiago EV in the pic above for reference

Re: Hyundai Creta EV in the works

Maybe it’s just me but I feel zero excitement towards EV variants of ICE cars. It’s a fundamentally flawed product due to the design differences of platform. You can fit in a a smaller size battery and the floor won’t be uniform like a proper EV platform.

Also since it’s supposed to be similar car the manufacturer will have to keep the power figures close to the ICE version (much easier to 200++bhp in EVs) and keep the price higher than ICE to not cannibalise the sales of the ICE car, despite the 60-70% total tax on ICE vs 5-10% total on EV depending on the state.

Instead I’d rather see an update to the outdated Kona to compete with the MG ZS and upcoming(?) MG4. Even if they make the Kona a better car it won’t cannibalise the Creta because of size and other design differences.
