It’s here. Now. Sleeker and more sophisticated, the new KONA Electric features an updated design, the very latest smart tech – and up to 300 miles range on a single charge. And thanks to shortened delivery times in Europe – going electric in style has never been easier.
Sleek, sculpted SUV style
The KONA Electric’s uniquely confident design has been given an even more streamlined, athletic look, while retaining its adventurous SUV flair. The redesign is characterised by smooth, aerodynamic shapes and sculpted lines that flow harmoniously into the body-coloured wheel arch claddings and new, exclusive 17” wheels.
KONA Electric’s lighting signature features distinctive new LED headlamps and slimmer Daylight Running Lights.
17" Alloy Wheels
The exclusive new 17’’ alloy wheels are optimised for aerodynamics, artfully combining efficiency and style.
The clean, flowing front end is like nothing else on the road. The closed grille is the centrepiece in a design characterised by sleek, aerodynamically sculpted lines.
Body Coloured Claddings
One of the more eye-catching design updates are the painted wheel arch claddings, giving the KONA Electric a distinctive, athletic look
Sleek New Tail Lamps
The new tail lamps feature horizontally-stretched graphics, which mirror the unique look of the front end light signature.
Rear Bumper and Skid Plate
The rear bumper flows harmoniously into the body colour treatment of the wheel arch claddings. And mirroring the front, the accent lines draw the eye into the completely redesigned skid plate.
Distinctive and individual
The KONA Electric offers you a bountiful selection of desirable features. With Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, your smartphone is seamlessly synced while wireless charging is another neat addition. Remain fully connected with all your favourite things through wireless phone mirroring.
The head-up display helps you stay safe by projecting important information like speed, navigation commands, and warnings right into your line of sight.
10.25" Digital Cluster
For an even more high-tech look in the cockpit, the brilliant new fully digital 10.25’” cluster displays essential driving information where you can see it best: front and centre. The right hand dial displays electric powertrain information like the current state of battery charge as well as the current level of power usage.
10.25" Touchscreen Navigation
The new 10.25” touchscreen navigation system supports Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, meaning you can safely operate useful smartphone features from the big screen.
Effortlessly switch between drive, neutral, reverse and park using the buttons conveniently located in the centre console.
Roomy, connected and versatile
KONA Electric doesn’t compromise on space – So sit back and relax, there’s plenty of space for five adults. But it’s also the attention to detail that makes it so special. Discover an exceptional level of comfort with high quality materials throughout for a sensuous and refined feel.
The conveniently located wireless charging pad provides quick and easy smartphone charging for Qi standard enabled devices.
KRELL Premium Sound System
The premium sound system from KRELL delivers perfectly balanced audio, so you never miss a beat.
Remote Climate Settings
Chilly morning? No problem. While your KONA Electric is plugged into a power source, you can schedule a time to pre-heat the cabin, defrost the windows and even activate the steering wheel heating. And because this is done while charging, it saves battery that would be needed to heat the car when you’re on the road.
Heated and Ventilated Seats
Warm in winter and cool in summer. The driver and front seat passenger seats are available with seat heating and ventilation.
Powerful, fun and efficiency
Enjoy electric driving at its best.
* Figures relate to 64kWh models. All figures calculated are under WLTP (Worldwide Harmonised Light-Duty Vehicles Test Procedure) regulations, which measure fuel, energy consumption, range and emissions in passenger vehicles in Europe. This is designed to provide figures closer to real-world driving behaviour. Range dependent on ambient temperature, battery state of charge and condition, driving style, vehicle payload, vehicle electronics, heating and climate settings. ** From 10% to 80% state of charge, if charged at a 100 kW DC charging station.
The KONA Electric offers a range of charging options to suit your grid connection at home and the types of charging stations you have access to throughout the day.
When using a 50 kW direct current (DC) charging station, KONA Electric’s lithium-ion polymer battery takes about
48 minutes to charge from 10% to 80% state of charge (SOC) for the 39kWh battery and 64 minutes for the 64 kWh battery.
When connected to a home wallbox or public AC charging station, it takes 6 hours 50 minutes to charge the long-range 64 kWh battery pack from 10-100% SOC using the 10.5 kW three phase on-board charger (OBC) or 9 hours 15 minutes usingthe 7.2 kW single phase OBC. For the 39.2 kWh battery pack, charging from 10-100% SOC when connected to a home wall boxor public AC charging station, takes 4 hours 20 minutes using the 10.5 kW three phase on-board charger (OBC) and 6 hours using the 7.2 kW single phase OBC.

Stay Safe with Hyundai SmartSense
Hyundai SmartSense is our cutting-edge driver assistance system. Every feature has been added to maximise safety through active monitoring and reactive support when required. It’s built to provide you and your passengers with optimum safety for extra peace of mind.
Intelligent Speed Limit Warning (ISLW)
External cameras and the onboard navigation system combine to monitor road speed limits, keeping you informed via the navigation screen to keep your pace at a safe speed.
Available on Premium and Ultimate trims only.
Blind Spot Collision Avoidance Assist (BCA)
Radars detect traffic in the vehicle blind spot, warning drivers with an audible alarm when the indicator is used so you can be aware of the traffic around you. It will also take action itself, braking to help avoid a collision. Standard on Premium and Ultimate trims.
Lane Follow Assist (LFA)
LFA helps prevent accidental lane departure and keeps your vehicle safely centred within the lane. Using a forward camera to recognise the intended lane, LFA will automatically provide corrective steering input to help maintain the centre path. This not only detects road lines but also the road edge.
Highway Driving Assist (HDA)
For additional safety, Highway Driving Assist keeps your vehicle at your pre-set speed and maintains road position in your lane. HDA monitors the distance to the vehicles ahead, reducing speed automatically when the gap closes. When the safe distance is restored, HDA resumes the pre-set cruising speed.
Forward Collision Avoidance (FCA)
Avoid getting too close to pedestrians or vehicles ahead of you with audible alerts, cycle detection and automatic brake application if necessary.
Driver Attention Warning (DAW)
When a pattern of fatigue or distraction is identified, the system gets your attention with an alert and pop-up message suggesting a break.
