This comprehensive 2019 Hyundai Kona Electric review should answer most of your questions.

Sure, the above video is just a quick look, but Practical Motoring links to a full-fledged written review of the all-new 2019 Hyundai Kona Electric. It’s complete with details regarding specs, performance, ride and handling, price, ownership, and safety. Then publication takes all of this into account to provide us with an overall score and a final verdict.

Let’s skip right to the conclusion here before you take in the specifics of the entire review. According to Practical Motoring, the Hyundai Kona Electric achieves an overall score of four out of five. The verdict reads:

Let’s put the electric thing aside for a minute. Assuming you’re OK with a compact car not a family hauler, here’s a crossover that’s extremely lively, smooth and easy to drive. Very well equipped too. If you merely commute, you’ll never need to go to a fuel station. Now, the EV bit. It’s got similar range to vastly more expensive cars. Just plug it in one night on your driveway or garage and that’s enough for several days’ normal driving. If you want to do long journeys, it will serve better than any other affordable EV.

The reviewer gives the new Hyundai EV its highest score of 4.5 out of five for safety. Performance, ride and handling, and infotainment and controls all achieve a score of four, while the Kona Electric’s interior and practicality earn a 3.5.

Um, no detailed pricing is given. And, review is for UK version!

menorman

Sounds more like the Aussie version.

What are the “vastly more expensive cars” that have a “similar range”?

reader

There are some. Some that don’t come even near the same safety equipment, and basic modern tech like Android Auto or Carplay integration

BoltUp

Pick any Tesla, then add in the Bolt, and when it arrives the iPace.

antrik

Doesn’t sound like they considered the Bolt in this comparison. Is it even available in Australia?…

Dav8or

No, it is not.

Dimitrij

Hmmm … Speaking of the 64 kWh Kona:

The TM3 is more expensive, but not “vastly”, and it has a considerably longer range. The S and X are much larger than the Kona.

The i3 and a number of others have a much shorter range.

The Bolt is priced in the same range as the Kona.

bukweet

Great!

But will they build enough of them?

Trackdaze

20000 first year probably triple that next.

antrik

That would be amazing. On what grounds are you making this guess?…

Rolando

The plan is to produce just 30,000 Kona’s per year as far as I read. And the reservation list of Norway shows already 20,000 and counting …. so the entire world production could possibly absorbed from a single country (Norway with 5 million inhabitants).
As high EV incentive blessed Norway is usually prioritized (Tesla, Bolt…) the rest of the world has to wait for years I am afraid.
