Hyundai Kona PHEV Spied For First Time

JAN 25 2019 BY MARK KANE 7

Hyundai/Kia’s strategy is to offer a variety of powertrains

Hyundai is working on a plug-in hybrid version of the Kona model, which is already available as ICE and pure battery electric.

We don’t know much about the Kona PHEV, but it’s likely that the powertrain will be shared either with either the Hyundai IONIQ Plug-In or Kia Niro PHEV.

Below you can find the first spy photos of the Hyundai Kona PHEV in a winter camouflage outfit.

According to the photographers, the upcoming PHEV has new bigger infotainment screen – The buttons sitting on each side of the screen are now gone and have moved to the bottom of the screen that now looks to be a touch screen.

We suspect the Kona PHEV will launch soon and it too will be a popular option for those who aren’t yet ready to make the jump to the fully electric version of the Kona.

65 miles of Electric Range and the rest gas and buttons shifter they have on BEV

That would be appealing. Wonder if it would have same cargo room.


Lost “interest” in the Kona EV because of the lack of the TOWING option, which I just need to have! Almost bought Outlander PHEV, but this fuc*er is so noisy (beeping for no reason, near every single event on the road all the time, one can get headache from that annoyance) so I only made a short test drive, which says all. So I am now hoping to be soon able to buy spacey 4WD or AWD (lot of snow here) with towing option either EV or PHEV. Let´s see if Kona PHEV will have towing option and I really hope 4WD as well…

No towing option

Try Subaru XV Crosstrek PHEV? AWD, 1500lbs towing.

Still won’t be able to heat electrically. Until they fix that, Hyundai/Kia PHEVs are dead to me. Of course that’s becoming less and less of a problem since their EVs are getting better and better.

Try driving in the winter here in Ohio. I’m glad i have my volt still
