The Hyundai Kona Electric is an all-electric version of the recently introduced Kona crossover. Debuting at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show alongside the redesigned Hyundai Santa Fe, it will be available in two versions. Versions with ranges of 186 miles or 292 miles per charge, according to Hyundai.
Making long-range electric cars
The Chevrolet Bolt EV and Tesla Model 3 have shown that automakers are serious about making long-range electric cars available to the mass market. The next vehicle to join the Bolt EV and Model 3 in that noble mission just might be this odd-looking Hyundai. The long-range version compares nicely to the 238-mile Bolt EV and 310-mile Model 3. Hyundai’s measurements were made on the European testing cycle. We’ll need numbers from the tougher U.S. EPA cycle for a real comparison.
