Hyundai has officially unveiled a new subcompact A-class electric vehicle called INSTER. It is a relatively affordable urban model, which is the result of the evolution of the gasoline model CASPER, sold in South Korea since 2021.

Hyundai called this model "a new standard for the popularization of electric vehicles" and plans to sell the electric version outside of South Korea. It will be available in Europe at an initial price below €25,000.

By removing the combustion system components in the original Casper car, Hyundai changed the design and construction of the INSTER. This allowed to expand the wheelbase and increase the body for more interior space. As a result, Hyundai has created a car that fills the niche in the market between traditional subcompact urban A-class cars and larger B-class compact cars.

The compact size of the new Hyundai INSTER makes it perfect for urban driving and parking, which are two key factors for driving in Europe. The car has a length of 3825 mm, a width of 1610 mm, a height of 1575 mm, and a wheelbase of 2580 mm. The trunk volume is 280 liters, and folding the rear seats can increase it to 351 liters.

INSTER comes standard with a 42 kWh battery, but customers can also choose the Long-Range version with a 49 kWh battery. Both versions use a single electric motor. The Standard model has a 71.1 kWh engine, a maximum speed of 140 km/h, and a range of over 300 km (WLTP standard). In the Long-Range version, the engine power is slightly higher (84.5 kWh), and with 15-inch wheels, the range is 355 km. The maximum speed is increased to 150 km/h.

The standard onboard charger with a power of 11 kW allows you to charge the standard version in 4 hours, while the Long-Range version will need 35 minutes more. When using fast 120 kW charging stations, it will take 30 minutes to recharge from 10% to 80%.

Hyundai promised to provide more details about the INSTER electric vehicle closer to its market launch. The car will go on sale in Korea this summer, followed by expansions to the markets of Europe, the Middle East, and the Asia-Pacific region.
