Hyundai introduces an appealing more affordable E-SUV model the ‘KONA Electric’. This cutting-edge SUV can reach a range of up to 300 miles (WLTP) on the larger 64kWh battery version. With a list price starting from £33,940 for the 64 kWh model, you are able to get the same range as a Tesla Model S 75D for less than half of the price.
The larger 64kWh battery enables the Kona to reach a top end range of up to 300 miles, while the smaller 39kWh battery will give you a range of up to 235 miles on a full charge.
The KONA Electric’s 64kWh version takes around 75 minutes to charge up to 80% when connected to a rapid charger and up to 57 minutes for the 39kWh version.
Using a standard home wallbox charger it will take around 5 hours 30 minutes for the 39kWh version and 9 hours 30 minutes for the larger battery version to charge from flat to full.
The KONA Electric follows the attractive design of the original KONA with a few altered features like the closed front grille. It comes with 17″ aero-dynamic alloy wheels. You can choose from the 21 vibrant colour combinations available, made up of 7 body colours along with 3 contrasting roof colour choices. Other features include wireless device charging, heated seats and a premium sound system.
