Kona Electric In Demand

Due to customer demand, Hyundai Motor UK has announced that the customer waiting times for the new 2020 Kona Electric will be significantly reduced by increasing existing supply from its facility in Ulsan, South Korea. Meaning you can get your new Kona Electric quicker than usual.

“The Hyundai Kona Electric has achieved outstanding success in the UK since its introduction, with demand for the model quickly outstripping supply. We have listened to our customers and are significantly ramping-up availability in order to cut delivery times, a move that we hope will encourage more people to consider a fully electric car.”

Ashley Andrew, Managing Director, Hyundai Motor UK

The Kona Electric boasts an official range of 278 miles and topped What Car magazine’s ‘Real Range’ test for electric vehicles, achieving the longest driving range of any electric car tested*. The car is powered by a 150kW (204PS) electric motor driving the front wheels.

Also recently awarded a Which? Best Buy, the Kona Electric enables customers to combine the two fastest growing automotive trends – electrification and SUV style. It carries the same expressive design as the rest of the Kona family, it seats five passengers in comfort and boasts a generous boot capacity of 332 litres. With a series of enhancements recently introduced, it also now provides even more benefits for customers, including new connectivity features with Hyundai Bluelink®, and a new navigation system with 10.25-inch centre display as standard.

Some customers may not want to purchase a fully electric car and the best stepping stone along the way is the Kona Hybrid.

Hyundai offers the broadest line-up of electrified powertrains, reinforcing the company’s leadership in the eco-car segment. The company’s electrified line-up includes a fuel-cell vehicle, plus a range of hybrid and fully-electric models.

The 2020 Kona Electric is now available to order with the added benefits from Hyundai’s comprehensive five-year unlimited mileage warranty and roadside assistance package.
