Hyundai Kona Electric At The 2018 New York Auto Show – Videos
The all new Hyundai Kona Electric, presented in New York, is another plug-in model that joins the 200+ mile EPA range club.
The South Korean manufacturer intends to launch only the 64 kWh version in the U.S. (the 39.2 kWh will not be offered) with estimated range of up to 250 miles (400 km).
Because the market launch is in the fourth quarter of 2018, its splash won’t be quite as big as it would be if it launched today, but it should be decent competitor in the affordable long-range segment.
The Chevrolet Bolt EV will be probably the first EV to feel the new competition on its heels. The Nissan LEAF 60 kWh – expected in 2018/2019 and Standard Tesla Model 3 should be less affected.
Here we have some photos and video of the Hyundai Kona Electric:
