How the 2025 Hyundai Tucson EV Changes the Game for Compact SUVs – The Hyundai Tucson is one of the most popular small SUVs on the market. It has a stylish look, a roomy interior, and several different engine choices. But Hyundai is going to the next level with the Tucson in 2025 by making an all-electric version with better technology, speed, and fuel economy. Learn about the 2025 Hyundai Tucson EV below.
What’s New for 2025 ?
The 2025 Hyundai Tucson EV is based on the fourth-generation Tucson that came out in Europe in late 2023 with a new look. The new Tucson has a slightly wider body, a new grille with LED daytime running lights built in, new wheels, and redesigned front and back bumpers with bigger skid plates.
The 2025 Tucson’s interior has also been revamped. It now has a sleek dashboard with two 12.3-inch screens for the infotainment system and instrument cluster. The screens are all in one unit that takes up the whole dashboard width, making it look modern. Four dots on the steering wheel stand for the Morse code letter “H.”
The most apparent change inside is that the climate control and music system no longer use touch-sensitive controls that were said to be hard to use. Instead, they now have actual buttons and knobs. It has also been moved to a stick on the steering column. This makes room on the centre console for a wireless charge pad, cup holders, and storage areas.
Design: Exterior and Interior
The 2025 Hyundai Tucson EV looks like the regular Tucson from the outside, with just a few small changes showing it is electric. The grille is closed off and has a patterned surface for the electric form. A blue stripe is also running along the bottom line to make it stand out. The base of the air entry has a blue border, and there is a charging port on the left side.
The Tucson EV looks a lot like the standard model from the side, but it has unique alloy wheels with spokes that are made to reduce drag and increase economy. Some things that make the Tucson EV stand out are on the back, like a light bar that links the headlights, a “Tucson” badge on the tailgate, and an “Electric” logo on the right side.
The inside of the 2025 Hyundai Tucson EV is almost identical to the knowledge of the standard Tucson. The structure of the instrument panel is different, and it shows things like the battery level, range, power use, and drive mode. The entertainment system also has features for electric vehicles, like finding charging sites, seeing how much energy was used, and managing the batteries.
There is plenty of room inside the Tucson EV for up to five people, with plenty of headroom and legroom in both rows. Depending on the trim level, the leather or cloth seats have holes to let air flow. The back seats can also be split in half, 60/40, to make more room for goods. This makes the space go from 38.7 cubic feet to 73.8 cubic feet.
An electric motor in the 2025 Hyundai Tucson EV makes 201 horsepower and 291 pound-feet of torque. A one-speed gearbox connects the engine to the front wheels. An all-wheel-drive system can be added as an extra. The electric motor gets its power from a 64-kWh lithium-ion battery pack. One charge gives the car an expected range of 250 miles.
There are different ways to charge the battery pack, based on the available time and facilities. A DC fast charger can fill 80% of the battery in 45 minutes, making it the quickest way to charge. With a Level 2 charger, the battery can be fully charged in eight hours. With a regular 120-volt outlet, it can take up to 36 hours.
The 2025 Hyundai Tucson EV also has regenerative braking, which turns the vehicle’s moving energy back into power to increase its range. Using buttons behind the steering wheel, the driver can change how much regenerative braking is used, or the system can do it for them based on road conditions.
Release Date and Price
The 2025 Hyundai Tucson EV should go on sale in some areas worldwide in late 2024 or early 2025. It will probably come to India at the end of 2025 or the beginning of 2026 as a high-end small SUV.
The 2025 Hyundai Tucson EV’s price hasn’t been released yet, but it’s expected to be much more than the regular Tucson, which costs between Rs 29.02 lakh and Rs 35.94 lakh (ex-showroom). That would make the electric version one of the most expensive small SUVs in the country, with a price range of 40 lakh to 45 lakh.
The 2025 Hyundai Tucson EV will go up against the MG ZS EV, the Tata Nexon EV, and the soon-to-be-released Mahindra XUV300 Electric on the electric SUV market. It must also deal with regular SUVs like the Volkswagen Taigun, the Kia Selto, and the Skoda Kushaq.
