The new Hyundai KONA Electric has a new, purer exterior design, signifying clean electric mobility. Additional safety, connectivity and convenience features ensure an even better driving experience. KONA Electric continues to deliver one of the best all-electric driving ranges of any electric car, with up to 484 kilometres for the 64 kW version (WLTP) (electricity consumption combined: 14.7 kWh/100 km; CO2 emissions combined: 0 g/km according to WLTP)
The new KONA Electric combines a clean and sleek appearance with the protective and bold B-SUV body type. A closed grille with an updated look, new light architecture, and body-coloured wheel arch claddings give the model a wide stance and a distinctive appearance on the road. The body has been lengthened by 25mm for a stronger visual stance. The new KONA Electric is available with a range of new exterior colours, including nine new colours and two-tone roof options. On the interior, a new, horizontal layout with advanced connectivity technology and new ambient light technology in the front footwells contribute to a modern look. The interior is available with two colour options.
The new KONA Electric offers two different zero-emissions battery electric powertrains: a long range version with a 64 kWh battery with a maximum range of 484km, and a 39.2 kWh battery with a driving range of 305km (WLTP). The range has been increased thanks to the addition of new premium tyres with the latest product update. The new tyres also offer benefits in terms of performance and range. The new KONA Electric is also equipped with shift by wire, regenerative braking, and an optional three-phase on-board charger for more convenience
The new KONA Electric features a number of upgraded Hyundai SmartSense active safety features, including Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA) and Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA). Both features can not just offer a warning but also activate the vehicle’s brakes to prevent a collision if necessary. Safe Exit Warning (SEW) and Rear Seat Alert (RSA) are especially tailored to ensure rear passenger safety. The new KONA Electric is also equipped with a number of passive safety features, including six airbags, and eCall.
