Manufacturers working in Europe have seen a lack of components, and their business strategy pushes customers towards ever larger and more expensive vehicles. But this strategy cannot last forever and the entry of increasingly demanding emission regulations makes it necessary to expand the offer with volume models. Now, Hyundai has confirmed that it is working on an affordable electric car that will join the range in Europe.
This has been indicated by Andreas-Christoph Hofmann, head of marketing for Hyundai in the old continent, who has indicated that this new model will be placed by price in the orbit of Volkswagen’s reasonably priced electric car.
As we remember, the German manufacturer has indicated that in 2025 it will launch the ID. Life, whose price will be below 20,000 euros before aid. Something that tells us that Hyundai’s proposal will also move in those figures.
A sector that has been largely abandoned by the automobile groups until now, which will mean launching a model that in the case of Hyundai should be placed in the i10 segment, so it will be a proposal less than 4 meters long, with about 40 or 50 kWh useful battery and about 300 km of real autonomy.
As for the dates, while Volkswagen will wait until 2025, other brands such as Renault will already take the step with affordable electric cars in 2024 with the launch of the Renault 4L. A compact SUV that will accompany the Renault R5 on this adventure, will also return with an electric system and a reasonable price.
It remains to be seen what Hyundai offers for its proposal, both mechanically and, above all, aesthetically. A section where it is not leaving anyone indifferent with its latest launches, and that we can bet will continue with its affordable electric.
