Hyundai previews the Casper Electric, a low-cost EV that will be re-badged in Europe [Video]


Hyundai will introduce its new affordable EV, the Casper Electric, next week. In Europe, it will be called the Inster EV as Hyundai looks to meet the growing demand for low-cost EVs. Ahead of its official debut, Hyundai is giving us a closer look at the model in its latest video. Check it out below.

Hyundai teased the Casper Electric for the first time last week in Korea, calling it the “new standard for popularizing electric vehicles.”

Based on the gas-powered Casper sold in Korea, Hyundai’s new EV features the brand’s new design theme. Elements like Hyundai’s signature DRL headlights and pixelated turn signals give it a futuristic feel, similar to Hyundai’s IONIQ models.

The Casper Electric features up to 315 km (196 miles) driving range in Korea. In Europe, it will get up to 355 km (221 miles) WLTP range.

Hyundai teased the Casper Electric as the Inster EV for Europe for the first time last week. According to Hyundai, the Inster will “set new standards” in range, tech, and safety.

Although official prices have yet to be revealed, the EV is expected to start at under $27,000 (25,000 euro) in Europe. In Korea, the gas model starts at around $15,000.
