Hyundai has pulled back the curtain on the Inster, a new all-electric micro-SUV. The new product will debut later this month internationally at the Busan International Motor Show 2024 in Korea, which will be held between June 27 and July 7. The name Inster has been derived from "intimate" and "innovative", and suggests a focus on urban driving with a modern twist, the company stated.

Built on the existing Casper platform, the Hyundai Inster borrows design cues like the round headlights from the ICE counterpart (Casper). However, it adds a modern touch with distinctive pixelated LED daytime running lights, reminiscent of Hyundai's latest EVs.

While full specifications are yet to be revealed, Hyundai promises the Inster will be competitive in its class. This includes a WLTP claimed driving range of 315 kms on a single charge, similar to the popular Tata Tiago EV in India.

A glimpse inside reveals a fully digital driver's display, hinting at a tech-focused cabin. Hyundai also emphasises advanced safety features for the Inster, but details remain unknown.

Hyundai India’s EV commitments

While the arrival of the all-electric Inster micro-SUV in India remains unclear, Hyundai Motor India has confirmed its commitment to electrification. Their ambitious plan involves introducing six battery electric vehicles (BEVs) by 2030.

These BEVs will cater to a wide range of Indian car buyers. The lineup will span various segments and body styles, including SUVs, sedans, and compact SUVs. This strategy aims to target both the mass market and the mass premium market, offering electric options to a broader audience.

To support this initiative, Hyundai Motor India plans to expand its EV charging infrastructure, targeting 485 charging stations by 2030. Hyundai's commitment to six new BEVs by 2030 signifies a significant push towards electric mobility in India.
