The all-new Kona Electric enables customers to combine the two fastest growing automotive trends – electrification and SUV style – and carries the same expressive design and functionality of the regular Kona.
The fully electric version reflects the individual lifestyle of modern customers who benefit from a great fun-to-drive factor and the low environmental impact of a fully electric vehicle.
The completely new platform of the Kona enables a space-saving integration of the battery packs without compromising the roominess.
The Kona Electric features two different powertrain versions, offering customers one of the most powerful electric motors.
The long-range battery version provides driving range of up to 470 kilometres, delivering a maximum output of 204hp (150kW).
With a battery capacity of 39.2kWh, the basic version drives up to 300 kilometres on a single charge with the motor delivering 135hp (99kW).
With 395Nm of immediate torque and an acceleration of 7.6 seconds from 0 to 100km/h, the Kona Electric promises to provide a fun driving experience.
The Kona Electric adopts the expressive-looking and powerful front from the regular Kona.
The key design differentiator is the closed grille which gives a clean and stylish appearance, while also enhancing aerodynamics.
Another characteristic element of the front design is the Composite Light enhancing the visual impact, with the LED Daytime Running Lights positioned on top of the LED headlights.
The Kona Electric’s two-tone roof and choice of seven distinctive exterior colours underline the personal style of its driver.
A special feature of the Kona Electric is the shift-by-wire operation gear control which enables an intuitive operation of the electric powertrain.
The adjustable regenerative braking system allows the driver to adjust the intensity of the regenerative braking by using the paddle shifters behind the steering wheel.
The system recuperates additional energy when possible.
Drivers also benefit from the large 7-inch supervision cluster, which displays key information about the car’s driving performance and, in addition, the combiner head-up display shows relevant driving information directly to the driver’s line of sight.
The Kona Electric is the latest addition to the successful family reinforcing Hyundai’s leadership in the eco-car segment.
It merges the strengths of SUV with the power of electric powertrains. Hyundai is the first automotive brand in Europe to make a fully electric subcompact SUV available to everyone.
