  • New Hyundai Inster teased
  • Small, affordable electric car
  • Funky-looking design
  • Up to 220 miles of range
  • Full reveal coming later this month

Hyundai has teased a new budget-friendly electric car called the Inster. Details are thin on the ground for now, but it’ll be an alternative to the Citroen E-C3 with up to 220 miles of range.

New Hyundai Inster design

This is your first look at the new Hyundai Inster, and it’s already shaping up to be a funky-looking thing.

New Hyundai Inster teaser front

It’s a similar size to cars like the Toyota Aygo X and Fiat 500, but you can already see a pretty distinctive face shining out of the darkness. The pixel-style lights are becoming a common feature across Hyundai’s electric cars, although the circular lights lower down are unique to the Inster.

The design of this new electric car may be under wraps for now, but a quick look at Hyundai’s Korean website uncovers something which gives you an even better idea of what this car will look like. The Inster will be sold in Korea as the Casper Electric, and there’s a petrol version of the Casper on sale over there now.

Hyundai Casper front

You can see plenty of similarities between the Casper and the Inster, including those circular headlights and the boxy shape. You can expect to see a tweaked front bumper to distinguish the Inster, but the overall design is likely to be pretty similar.

New Hyundai Inster batteries and range

While there’s no word yet on what’s powering the Inster, Hyundai has confirmed that it’ll have up to 220 miles of range.

That’s over 20 miles more than you get in the Citroen e-C3, however you’ll have to wait for the full reveal to find out more about the performance.

New Hyundai Inster price and release date

Luckily, it won’t be a very long wait. The Inster will make its debut at the end of this month, with orders potentially opening by the end of the year.

If this car is going up against the Citroen e-C3 it’ll need to have a very competitive starting price. The Citroen costs less than £22,000, so expect a similar figure from the Inster.
