The bad news is that there will be just around 2,500 Kona Electric sold in Norway this year, as the automaker needs to balance its limited production capacity between several initial markets.

  • Kona Electric 64 kWh Technology 325,900 NOK ($39,813)
  • Kona Electric 64 kWh Technology with leather interior 335,900 NOK ($41,035)

  • Metallic paint costs: 345,900 NOK ($598)
  • Prices include guiding shipping and delivery costs of NOK 10,900, delivered to Drammen.
