Hyundai Casper Electric Teased

The visuals stem from the official Hyundai Korea channel on YouTube. They capture the round LED DRLs on the extreme edges of the bumper encapsulating the main headlamp cluster. Thereafter, we see the pixel-inspired LED turn indicators on the bonnet along with the pixel LED taillamp. This pattern is evidently inspired by the Ioniq series. In the subsequent section, a vague silhouette of the EV is teased.

It boasts the Casper-like tall-boy stance with an upright bonnet and a high roofline. The practical roof rails accentuate the height of the EV. The fenders at the front and rear indicate a slightly muscular side profile. Moreover, the alloy wheel design is quite distinct with a 4-spoke pattern. I am quite intrigued to see if it makes it to the final model. Finally, the side body cladding elevates the adventurous traits of the Hyundai Casper Electric.

Even though the details of the powertrain are not confirmed yet, an earlier press release said that the Inster will offer a projected range of 355 km (220 miles) (WLTP). Hence, it could be a perfect companion for a city commute for a whole bunch of people. We can expect a price tag of somewhere around $25,000 (23,000 Euros). Hyundai CEO Michael Cole confirmed that the Inster will roll out in Europe, followed by another Ioniq model later this year.

Hyundai Motor Group is firing on all cylinders with the development of affordable EVs for the mass market. This is true for Hyundai, as well as Kia. Also, going forward, most carmakers are adopting the route of affordability over everything else. At least, that looks like the only way to boost sales and make EVs a household affair. With the demand for electric cars experiencing a bit of a slowdown in regions like the U.S., China and Europe, low-cost EVs would encourage the masses to participate.

That is what will boost the future demand for electric mobility. Also, the charging infrastructure is being developed rapidly to ensure that potential EV owners will get peace of mind, at least in the urban centers and on highways. Note that inexpensive EVs are primarily meant for urban dwellers. For that, the car companies don’t need large batteries. Hence, the prices remain under control. Let us see how well the customers embrace the upcoming affordable EVs from some of the most prominent carmakers across the globe.
