Hyundai Plans To Launch A Mini Electric SUV And Electric Van

The Korean automaker is planning to expand its global electric portfolio with diversified EVs.

Hyundai is planning to launch an electric mini SUV and Van in the coming months to expand its global footprint. The former is a Casper-sized electric SUV which would become the entry-level EV from Hyundai across many international markets. One of the biggest challenges with the mass adoption of electric cars is their initial prices. Hence, affordable EVs are in huge demand and will also create further demand.

On the other hand, it will also launch an electric van for Iveco. It will be based on the global eLCV platform. This would cater to the commercial buyers all across the world. In fact, Hyundai will export it to many international markets. Iveco is a huge player in commercial van segment. This is an unequivocal indication that the Korean car marque wants to leave no stone unturned and offer electrification in all segments of the market and its portfolio.

Hyundai Plans Electric Mini SUV And Van

In its home market, Hyundai already sells Casper as a mini SUV. It is for those who are looking for a compact urban SUV. But it is available with an IC engine. As far as its electric counterpart is concerned, Hyundai could offer it with a length of around 3.9 m (153.5 in). That will be positioned under its current entry level EV, KONA electric. It will focus on being affordable rather than an EV with great performance and long range. Therefore, expect a humble range of around 200-300 km (125 mi to 187 mi) and LFP chemistry.

On the other hand, Hyundai will develop the chassis for its upcoming electric van which will be based on the Global Electric Light Commercial Vehicle platform. This platform is capable of carrying loads upto 2.5 tons to 3.5 tons. The low-floor construction makes it ideal for loading and unloading. Iveco will customize the electric vans and distribute them via its network by September this year at the IAA Transportation. It will rival the likes of Ford E-Transit.
