Hyundai Inster EV Revealed, Gets Heat Pump and V2L

The A-segment urban EV, based on the famed Korean-only Hyundai Casper, has been unveiled.

The much-anticipated Hyundai Inster EV has finally been revealed. The debut took place in South Korea at the 2024 Busan International Mobility Show. Inster is a Casper-based urban EV. It bears the compact SUV silhouette to cater to a large audience.

Despite being a compact EV, the overall stance looks imposing, thanks to the tallboy image and colossal wheel arches. It is available in two variants – Standard Range and Long Range. The launch is slated for this summer in South Korea. The A-segment compact EV will subsequently launch in Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific.

Even though the prices are not out yet, it is clear that Hyundai is aiming for a low-cost EV. This is imperative to reach the masses across various international markets. We have seen most major legacy carmakers trying to develop affordable EVs. With the current demand plateauing in the three biggest markets – the U.S., China and Europe, affordable electric cars look like the only way to spur demand. More details about the Hyundai Inster EV will be announced later.
