The images of the upcoming facelifted version of the Hyundai i20 have already leaked online, suggesting that the release of the updated i20 is imminent. Similar to the current model, the new Hyundai i20 will be available with 1.2-litre petrol and 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine options. However, a digital rendering has surfaced, envisioning an all-electric version of the i20, providing food for thought if Hyundai ever considers it.
A YouTube video by SRK Designs showcases a digital rendering of the Hyundai i20 Electric, featuring significant design revisions compared to the petrol-powered version of the hatchback. The rendering presents a frontal three-quarter view of the i20 Electric, highlighting a redesigned front profile and notable tweaks to the side profile.
The modified front fascia of the Hyundai i20 Electric presents a more subtle appearance compared to the edgy and aggressive design of the current model. It incorporates triangular headlamps positioned slightly above the trapezoidal headlamps found in the current version. The headlamps are equipped with daytime running LEDs along their upper and lower edges, connected by a sleek LED light bar, similar to the newly-launched Verna.
Beneath the headlamps, the Hyundai i20 Electric rendering showcases large triangular fog lamps integrated into the front bumper. The bumper also features a trapezoidal splitter with a triangular housing in the center, potentially accommodating a radar camera for ADAS features. Compared to the current i20, the i20 Electric boasts slightly curved bonnet lines, lending it a more aerodynamic appearance.
The side profile of the i20 Electric exhibits design refinements that enhance its sporty appeal over the current Hyundai i20. The larger alloy wheels sport a more dynamic design and are complemented by red brake calipers. A sharp crease flows from the front fender to the edge of the taillamp. The rearview mirrors appear smaller, sleeker, and reminiscent of concept cars, while the rear three-quarter glass panels exhibit a more angular shape compared to the current model.
Although this digital rendering of the Hyundai i20 Electric sparks interest with its futuristic design, Hyundai currently has no plans to launch an all-electric version of the i20. However, reports suggest that Hyundai is working on an all-electric Creta, which has been spotted undergoing trial runs on open roads without camouflage.
