New electric car unveiled by Hyundai

On show to the world at the recent 2018 Geneva Motor Show, Hyundai Motor’s All-New Kona Electric combines its environmentally-friendly credentials with the shape and roominess of an SUV. It represents the next milestone in Hyundai’s goal to make eco mobility attractive and affordable for everyone. The Kona Electric has been proclaimed by Hyundai Motor as the world’s first fully-electric subcompact SUV.

The Kona’s long-range battery offers a massively impressive best-in-class reach of 482 kilometres on a single charge. The distance has been calculated using the new European WLTP regulations which are designed to return more realistic results than other tests to date.


The Kona Electric shorter-range battery option can be re-charged with alternating current (AC) in 6 hours 10 minutes. The long-range battery will charge in 9 hours 40 minutes. Connected to a 100kW fast charger, the 64 kWh battery pack can be charged up to 80% in less than one hour, only 54 minutes.
