Hyundai Kona Electric SUV Range Hits 250 Miles


Hyundai officials told media at the New York Auto Show preview that the new 2019 Kona Electric Small SUV will feature a generous 250-mile driving range before the need for a recharge. That estimate outpaces standard ranges for Chevrolet Bolt, Nissan Leaf and Tesla Model 3. Hyundai’s 2019 Kona Electric subcompact crossover SUV, built in Ulsan, South Korea, will reach California dealerships in the fourth quarter of 2018. It will also be available early next year in states with ZEV (Zero Emission Vehicle) mandates on the East and West Coasts.

Built on Hyundai’s all-new crossover platform, the U.S.-bound Kona Electric Small SUV looks similar to its gasoline-powered variant except that it features a plain pattern in front rather than a grille. Body styling is low with a wide stance and the interior is stylish and roomy. New “extrovert” paint colors will be offered for the Kona EV variant, including Ceramic Blue and Pulse Red.
