Indian car manufacturers such as Mahindra, Tata Motors, as well as Toyota and Suzuki have begun their process of developing electric cars for the country. However, Korean carmaker and India's second largest car manufacturer Hyundai is yet to reveal its plans - until now.
Hyundai will reveal its electric vehicle plan at the 2018 Auto Expo. As per reports by Autocar India, the Korean carmaker is planning to showcase an electric sedan at the event. The company is also assessing the all-electric Kona SUV for a possible launch in India.
Hyundai has not revealed more details such as technical details of the electric sedan. More information will be announced at the 2018 Auto Expo, so, stay tuned to DriveSpark as we bring you all the details.
Additionally, Hyundai will showcase its new hatchback which will replace the i10 and the Eon in India. The 'Hyundai Family Concept' as it is known internally to the company has been spotted testing in India recently. Going by the spy pics, the family hatchback's cabin will be spacious.
Along with the new hatchback, Hyundai will also reveal the i20 facelift model during the Auto Expo. The new i20 will feature Hyundai's new ‘cascading' grille design, LED tail-lamps and new alloy wheels.
By showcasing an electric sedan, Hyundai is definitely in the right direction of electric vehicles, especially for India. The government has set itself an ambitious target moving to electric car fleet by 2030. With the top car manufacturers preparing well ahead of the target, we might witness an era of electric cars sooner than expected.
