The battery-electric version has the nameplate ‘Kona Electric’ (or EV), which was initially sold in South Korea and then globally.
The name ‘Kona’ references the west district Island of Hawaii, and according to Hyundai ‘reflects the lifestyle of modern customers.’ This followed a trend of Hyundai’s as they’ve named many of their vehicles after destinations such as the Creta, Santa Fe, Tuscon and Veracruz. The name was changed for the Portuguese market due to an unfortunate translation.
The Kona was built on the B-Segment SUV platform and was available in either front or all-wheel drive. In America, the car was unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2017 with two engine variants; 2-liter with 147 hp and a 1.6-liter with considerably less power but a lower weight.
The Kona Electric was Hyundai’s second electric vehicle, following the Ioniq. The two battery capacities were 39.2 kWh and 64 kWh, the upper trim levels included adaptive cruise control and lane centering.
When the Kona underwent the SAE tests (safety tests for automated driving), it scored a ‘level 2.’ This meant that it had driverless capabilities, allowing for automated acceleration, braking and self-steering but it was necessary for a driver to be in the vehicle, ready to intervene.
Hyundai released the Kona in 2019 and underwent a facelift in 2021 with three variants and two battery packs; 39.2 kWh and 64 kWh. In 2021, the Kona became the 6th best-selling electric vehicle in the UK after 7,199 units were registered in just one year.
