Hyundai Inster EV Teaser Image

Hyundai Casper-based Inster Sub-compact EV Teased w/ 355 km of Range

Once launched, it will be the cheapest electric car from the Korean auto giant by quite some margin. Hyundai has officially teased the Casper-based Inster sub-compact EV ahead of the debut at the Busan International Mobility Show in late June. The first glimpses of the A-segment EV evidently inform about Casper’s inspiration. Note that Casper is a Korea-only sub-compact SUV which was introduced back in 2021. It was almost imminent that an electric version of the Casper would eventually make its way into the international market at some point. Later this month, we get to acquaint ourselves with the Inster at the Busan International Mobility Show in South Korea.

The first aspect one notices is the round LED DRLs on the bumper. On top of these sit LED plus pixel-graphic turn indicators on the bonnet. Hyundai is following the modern approach of placing the main headlights on the bumper. These bear a striking resemblance with the Casper. The silhouette even captures functional roof rails. That accentuates the SUV-ish traits even further. The charging point is located at the front and one can also see a rather unique 4-spoked alloy wheel pattern. While it is a bit difficult to estimate the dimensions of the EV from these images, I reckon they would be in the vicinity of Casper. Interestingly, the teaser images even capture a tiny bit of the rear profile. Here, we witness the ‘Inster’ badging and pixel LED taillamp pattern. This is something similar to what the Ioniq 5 and Ioniq 6 get. I am also inclined to believe that it will bear an upright stance, much similar to the Casper. Hyundai says that the ‘Inster’ name is derived from “intimate” and “innovative” and “it will set new standards in terms of driving range, technology, and safety features, redefining what buyers can expect from a vehicle in this class.” Since the sub-compact EV is yet to debut, we don’t have any details regarding the powertrain and battery. However, the press release states that the maximum projected range of the Hyundai Inster EV will be 355 km (220 miles) (WLTP). Hence, we can ascertain that it is for urban usage as a daily driver rather than for long highway hauls. That is in line with what one expects from the estimated €20,000 (~ $21,500) price tag EV.

In order to make EVs mass market, cost is the primary hurdle. We have seen the EV demand, sort of, plateauing in recent times in the biggest automobile markets – the U.S. and China. I feel in order to spur the demand now, the masses have to be involved. The first wave attracted contributions more from the relatively affluent sections of society. However, to make EVs a household name, prices have to be lower. That is where sub-$25,000 EVs come into the picture. Once the initial costs drop, people will be more open to taking the plunge. Granted, a lot of work still needs to be done on developing adequate charging infrastructure. But that is a long-term process and is being done rapidly. Finally, governments all across the major automobile markets in the world are offering incentives and subsidies to promote EVs. With time, we should be able to see the impact of all these factors. An EV like the Inster could be instrumental in creating a wave of affordable electric cars in times to come.

Hyundai Ioniq 7 Spied Side Profile

Hyundai Ioniq 7 Electric SUV Spied Testing Ahead of June 27 Debut

The Hyundai counterpart to the already successful Kia EV9 is prepping for its official unveiling at the Busan Auto Show next month. Hyundai Ioniq 7 electric SUV will be the first 3-row BEV from the Korean auto giant. It is the production version of the Hyundai Concept SEVEN showcased back in 2021. Utilizing Hyundai’s recognized E-GMP architecture, the large SUV was seen testing on roads in its domestic market wearing a thick camouflage. The debut is slated for June 27 at the 2024 Busan Motor Show. The production will commence at Hyundai’s Asan plant in South Korea. I was able to squeeze out some design details from the latest spotting. You might also like: Hyundai To Launch New EV Brand In China; Plans 5 EVs In 3 Years Hyundai Ioniq 7 Electric SUV – Design I encountered the spy media on the Autospy portal. While the camouflage covers the body of the 7-seat EV, the front fascia reveals a split-LED headlamp setup. It includes LED DRLs on the bonnet bifurcating the headlamp cluster into two halves and another vertically-oriented LED headlamp unit on the bumper below. This layout bears a resemblance to the Concept SEVEN. On the sides, I find this alloy wheel design rather similar to what regular ICE Hyundai cars wear. I don’t believe this pattern will be carried forward to the production-spec version. That will likely have a design which will aid the aerodynamics of the electric SUV. In fact, we have seen such alloy wheels on the Ioniq 5 and Ioniq 6. The side profile even showcases large windows, flush-fitting door handles, black side pillars and a slightly sloping roofline toward the rear. Coming to the tail section, we experience a unique appearance with a boxy silhouette, and interesting LED taillamps which appear to cover the edges of the entire bootlid including the vertical section on the sides and a horizontal section on the top. Overall, the Hyundai Ioniq 7 will offer its distinct identity with a road presence unlike anything else. Hyundai Ioniq 7 Electric SUV – Specs While there have been no official announcements just yet, I expect it to share the powertrain options with the Kia EV9. The latter gets either a 76.1 kWh or a 99.8 kWh battery pack. In the most powerful dual-motor AWD settings, the EV9 makes a healthy 378 hp and 700 Nm of maximum power and torque. The official driving range is a decent 349 miles (562 km) as per WLTP. The 350 kW DC fast charging and 800-volt system allow recuperation of 154 miles (248 km) of range in just 15 minutes. In the regular single-motor RWD version, the peak power and torque are usable 200 hp and 350 Nm. Just like the EV9 GT, the Hyundai counterpart could see an N version down the line. More details will be revealed closer to the launch. Specs (exp.)

In addition to that, the monthly sales of these EVs are a testament to how well the customers have embraced them. EVs like the Hyundai Ioniq 5, Hyundai Ioniq 6, Kia EV6 and Kia EV9 and becoming popular among the masses. Going forward, the Hyundai Ioniq 7 is about to join this list. Since it will largely share components, powertrains and features with the EV9, the chances of its success are high.

By the looks of things, the electric monster will borrow most elements from the regular Ioniq 6. However, there will be a few aspects to enhance the performance. This ranges from aesthetic and aerodynamic components to mechanical modifications. Some of the most visual alterations include the likes of wider tracks, fender extensions, red brake callipers, an upgraded braking system, an extension of the rear spoiler and more. Furthermore, there will be an aggressive body kit in the production model. Still, these spy images give us a clear clue as to what the final product will look like. Notably, Hyundai could also deploy its Active Skirts technology to enhance aerodynamics even more. Hyundai Ioniq 6 N – Specs Albeit there are no official announcements from the Korean carmaker, it should be safe to assume that the Ioniq 6 N will borrow the powertrain from the Ioniq 5 N. Hence, we could see the dual-motor AWD version which could produce 641 hp of peak power for 10 seconds using the N Grin Boost function, just like the Ioniq 5 N. In regular settings, this mill will churn out a still impressive 601 hp and 770 Nm of peak power and torque. Powering the electric performance sedan will be an 84 kWh battery. To take things to a whole new level in terms of driving engagement, the Ioniq 6 N could take advantage of the N e-shift function which mimics an 8-speed automatic transmission to give the jolts experienced during actual gear shifts in IC cars by regulating motor torque. On top of that, it will also get the N Active Sound+ mode which imitates the sound of Hyundai’s 2.0-litre turbocharged 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.
