  • The aim was to create a unique proposition, merging two of the hottest and booming automotive trends - the fast and growing rise of the SUV segment and the environmentally friendly, low-running-cost plug-in electric vehicle. With its stylish, practical and sporty look complimented with a two-tone coloured roof and alloy wheels designed for aerodynamics, there is no turning away. Fun to drive elements of the petrol powered Kona with zero emissions battery electric propulsion makes the new Kona Electric a showstopper.

  • Kona Electric applies signature characteristics of the petrol powered Kona with its sporty stance, stacked headlights and optional two-tone roof. The Kona Electric’s unique frontal design includes a closed grille to house its battery charge port and eco-styled 17” alloy wheels for aerodynamic efficiency. The inside counts for a lot too. The bridge-type centre console featuring key function buttons right at your fingertips is an interior unlike any other. Being 100% electric, the Kona produces zero emissions, has a driving range of up to 449Km on a single charge (WLTP) and is easy to charge at home or on-the-move.

  • Social: Being 100% electric, owners of the Kona Electric have the advantage of overall lower running and maintenance costs due to a huge reduction in moving parts. Using electricity for charging works out cheaper than purchasing petrol or diesel, too. Commercial: A part from Hyundai benefiting from lower maintenance costs, the biggest advantage over competitors is that the Kona Electric has similar range & advanced safety technologies as other EVs for a far lower price. Environmental: As Australia’s first 100% electric small SUV, Kona Electric produces zero emissions meaning less pollution and a more meaningful contribution to a sustainable future.
