138hp motor, 45kWh battery to power Hyundai Creta EV

138hp motor, 45kWh battery to power Hyundai Creta EV

MG ZS EV and Maruti eVX will compete with Creta EV


One of the first car manufacturers to enter the Indian market with EVs was Hyundai, but the Korean company has so far operated only in premium segments with its Kona and Ioniq 5 models. It will be Hyundai’s Creta EV that enters the mass-market EV segment in India in 2025.  

It was recently revealed that the Creta EV has unique design features over its ICE counterpart in spy shots, and now we are bringing you exclusive details regarding the SUV’s powertrain and battery pack. On January 16, 2023, the new Creta EV is scheduled to debut based on the facelift of the Creta. 

Details on the Hyundai Creta EV

Hyundai’s global battery supplier, LG Chem, will supply Hyundai’s Creta electric vehicle with a 45kWh lithium-ion battery pack. It will be based on the regular Creta with an ICE, although there will be some modifications to it.

The Creta EV, however, will have a smaller battery than Maruti’s upcoming eVX and MG ZS EV. A 50.3kWh battery powers the former, while a 60kWh battery packs the latter when it launches – initially an entry-level version and eventually a top-spec version. In contrast, the long-range battery of the Nexon EV will be larger than the 40.5kWh battery of the Nexon EV.

A Kona EV is also expected to share its electric motor with the latest-generation, entry-level Kona electric vehicle currently available overseas. In other words, it will be powered by a single motor on the front axle that produces approximately 138 horsepower and 255 Newton meters of torque.

Rivals to Hyundai Creta EV

A price announcement can be expected in early 2025 after the Creta EV makes its global debut during the second half of 2024. In addition to the MG ZS EV, the Maruti eVX will also be a direct competitor, with only the latter being an all-electric vehicle.
