The latest Hyundai Casper EV, according to reports from Automotive News Europe and Auto-Moto.com, will go on sale in Europe this year.
Casper, a tiny four-door city small-carriage car, produced by Hyundai in South Korea since 2011 with a 1.0-litre petrol engine, but for the European market it will receive an electric transmission. This was reported by the head of Hyundai France Lionel Kio, who said that the electric mobile will cost about 20 000 euros. Recall that Tesla has been teasing for several years now with an affordable electric mobile for 25 000 euros, which does not yet have a release date.
In addition to the miniature dimensions (its length is only 3595 mm), the low starting price of Casper EV is also associated with its lithium-iron-phosphate battery (LFP), which, supposedly, can provide a range of up to 300 km. This is enough for big European cities.
The Hyundai Casper EV will be approximately 25 mm longer than its internal combustion engine counterpart, which will help save interior space. As for the location of the charging port, it will most likely be at the front of the car.
Casper EV will arrive in Europe in the third quarter of this year.
