New on the market : Hyundai Kona Electric


The Hyundai Kona Electric price is finally out for the Irish Market.

It will be sold (at least initially) in a single version, for € 35,995 after incentives. If this sounds expensive at first, but it has to be put in perspective considering it will have the powerful 204hp motor, with the large 64kWh battery.

It also comes fully equipped with leather seats, 17” alloy wheels, heated steering wheel and front seats, Android Auto and Apple Carplay for the infotainment, wireless phone charger and lane keep assist.

For the EV specifications side, it has a heat-pump, 7.2kw on-board AC charger, 70kw CCS DC charging port.

There doesn’t seem to be any option, besides a choice of roof and body colours.

Compared to a 40 kWh Nissan Leaf SVE, it is € 3,400 dearer : It has a similar equipment, but larger battery and a more powerful engine. It however is a small SUV (same size as a Renault Captur) and cannot match the family abilities the Nissan Leaf has.

There is no doubt on the fact it will sell well, and the question we have is : What is the allocation for Hyundai Ireland and how fast will they sell out ?

Orders open on November 5th for January deliveries.

All specifications and more info are on Hyundai website
