All-New Hyundai Kona Electric

All-New Hyundai Kona Electric

At the Peninsula Motor Group, we know that our customers are looking for ways to lower their fuel consumption. Not only does it improve the environment, but it will also allow you to keep more of your hard earned dollars. Up until recently, it was next to impossible to find a compact SUV that offered both performance and extreme fuel efficiency. Thankfully, Hyundai has changed all that with the introduction of the Hyundai Kona Electric. This modern marvel is the first fully electric small SUV and it extends the already exciting Hyundai eco car line up. The Hyundai Kona Electric is still under review for the Australian Market, but the experts at Peninsula Motor Group thought this would be a perfect time to give a first-look at this possibly game-changing compact SUV. So, without further to do let’s take a closer look at the All-new Hyundai Kona Electric and see what all the excitement is about.

Performance

While all the exact details won't be known until its official unveiling at the Geneva Motor Show, as of the writing of this blog here is what we do know about the performance expected from the Hyundai Kona Electric. So far, we know that this SUV will have two different powertrains, both of which will contain one of the most powerful electric engines on the market as well as two different capacity battery packs. The real headline is the projected 470 kilometres (292 miles) all-electric range. Hyundai is using the all-new European World Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure to come up with these range numbers, however, we are confident the final range numbers will be around the pre-release stats.

Other Benefits and Stats

According to industry experts, the Hyundai Kona Electric should run around $50,000, which isn’t much considering that this is the first all-electric SUV… so you will save a great deal of money on petrol in the long run. Other expected changes from the regular Kona, the Hyundai Kona Electric will be 15mm longer and 5mm taller, most likely due to the added batteries. Like with many of the other Hyundai SUVs available from the Peninsula Motor Group, the Hyundai Kona Electric will be packed with the latest features including:

  • 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • All wheel drive with multi-link rear suspension
    • Heads-Up Display
    • Lane Keep Assist
    • Infinity Premium Audio
  • 8-inch LCD touchscreen display with navigation
    • Wireless device charging
