The New 24 Mdl Hyundai Kona Electric SUV

Kona Electric impresses with its class-leading powertrain options

The Hyundai Kona Electric, first launched in 2023, made significant steps forward in the electric SUV market, especially within the competitive B-segment. The latest 2024  Kona Electric arrives in the UK shortly and heralds a new era for electric vehicles (EVs), offering a blend of style, technology, and practicality that sets it apart. The new Kona Electric is not just an improvement over its predecessor but a reimagining of what an electric SUV can be. With its sleek design, the Kona Electric embodies a modern aesthetic that appeals to a wide audience, ensuring it stands out in a crowded market. Its increased size not only adds to its road presence but also enhances passenger comfort and cargo space, making it a versatile choice for families and individuals alike.

Under the bonnet, the Kona Electric impresses with its class-leading powertrain options. The availability of 48kW and 65kW battery packs offers potential owners the flexibility to choose a model that best suits their driving needs, with the larger option providing a claimed range of up to 319 miles on a single charge. This, combined with the vehicle's advanced technology features, including dual-zone climate control, comprehensive connectivity options, and dual 12.3-inch screens, ensures a driving experience that is both comfortable and connected. Moreover, the model lineup, which includes the Advance, N Line, N Line S, and Ultimate trim levels, means there's a Kona Electric to match a variety of budgets and preferences.

Hyundai's strategic use of the K3 platform signifies the Kona Electric's positioning as a bridge between the compact Bayon and the more sizable Tucson, offering a sweet spot in terms of size and functionality. The competitive pricing and attractive lease options further enhance its appeal, making it a financially accessible option for a broader range of customers. The inclusion of features like the AVC salary sacrifice calculator tool exemplifies Hyundai's commitment to providing value and convenience to potential owners. Overall, the Hyundai Kona Electric represents a forward-thinking choice for those looking to embrace electric mobility without compromising on style, space, or sophistication.

The Kona Electric improvements to technology, powertrain and design, and Hyundai has clearly decided to put the Kona in a whole different segment. Using the K3 platform from the Kia Niro EV has helped the Kona grow in size so that it's better positioned between the smaller Bayon and the larger Tucson.
