New SUVs for India are currently being developed by a number of automakers and will soon hit the market. In the coming months, Hyundai will also be introducing a large number of new electric SUVs and crossovers. Among them are the updated Hyundai Kona, Hyundai Ioniq 5, and a brand-new small electric SUV.
The new Hyundai compact electric SUV will compete against rivals like the Tata Nexon EV and the upcoming Mahindra XUV400 electric SUV and is anticipated to cost between Rs 15 and 18 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Based on what we currently know, the new Hyundai compact electric SUV is anticipated to be based on the Hyundai Venue and will be about 4 metres long.
In India, the Hyundai Venue competes against vehicles like the Mahindra XUV300, Kia Sonet, Maruti Brezza, Nissan Magnite, and Renault Kiger. The Venue offers three different powertrain choices, impressive dynamics, and a high-end interior.
Options for the powertrain include a 1.5L diesel engine, 1.2L NA petrol engine, and 1.0L turbo petrol engine. It is anticipated that the Venue will serve as the foundation for the upcoming electric iteration due to its overall setup and capabilities, which make it the ideal choice for the brand.
Hyundai Compact Electric SUV Launch
While we still don’t know much about this new, upcoming electric compact SUV from Hyundai, we anticipate that it will be unveiled in late 2023 or by the middle of 2024. The company previously disclosed its intention to launch up to six new electric vehicles in India by 2028. This brand-new small electric SUV will have just one motor and be expected to have a real-world range of more than 400 km.
Additionally, it will have amenities like a sizable sunroof, a wireless charging pad, a digital instrument panel, and connected vehicle technology. The Ioniq 5 and the new Kona facelift are currently being prepared for release in India by Hyundai.
