Launched only in Korea and with a gasoline engine, the small Hyundai Casper SUV will soon arrive in Europe. But with us, it will receive an electric motor.
As soon as it was released, the Hyundai Casper attracted many people, ultimately disappointed since this small SUV limited its distribution to its national market. So far. Hyundai has indeed confirmed that this model will finally arrive in Europe before the end of 2024. This is not exactly a surpriseseveral prototypes having been seen on European roads.
Another confirmation, its engine. On the Old Continent, the Casper will only have an electric engine. Customers who love small gasoline-powered city cars can always turn to the i10, which will remain in the catalog for a few more years. Here too it is only a confirmation.
The famous prototypes indeed feature some details, particularly on the lighting, which evoke the world of the Ioniq family. Moreover, the name of the little ghost could also be changed. Logic would dictate that the electric version would be called Ioniq 1 or Ioniq 2.
Hyundai wants to put hydrogen at the center of its decarbonization strategy
We still don’t know anything about the technical sheet, but we can expect a resumption of the elements of the Kia Ray EV, i.e. a 63 kW engine, a 35 kWh battery and a target range of 200 km. One of the arguments of the model will be its price which is expected to be close to 20,000 euros. Its access to the bonus may be complicated by its production currently planned in Korea. Unless Hyundai ultimately decides to produce it in Turkey alongside the i10.
It will therefore be a direct competitor to the Citroën ë-C3 and Dacia Spring.
