Aerodynamic Design

KONA Electric has been designed to look good and run better. Featuring a closed grille, aerodynamically optimised wheels and underbody, as well as an active air flap in the front bumper. Its overall drag coefficient has been optimised for better efficiency.

Beautiful and Practical

With its stable and wide stance, the KONA Electric features a roof rail that visually enhances the sleek roofline and supports up to 80 kg of load – so you can mount a roof carrier.

Luggage Space

An electric vehicle that doesn’t compromise on space. KONA Electric delivers a generous luggage volume of 332 litres, while the wide-opening rear hatch and low load height makes packing hassle-free.

The simple, sleek interior puts you in control. A perfect blend of advanced technology and elegant design keeps you informed without being distracting, letting you drive with confidence.

Connected and In Control

The sporty steering wheel includes ergonomically positioned controls, so you can stay connected and operate car systems while driving safely. Premium SE models also offer a heated version for even more comfort.

7" Digital Cluster

The innovative 7” digital instrument cluster indicates drive mode and clearly monitors energy flow and battery charge level. One glance is all it takes to see how your driving style is influencing your driving range.

Paddle Shifter

Regenerative braking controls on the steering column let you balance acceleration and efficiency by shifting the power to the wheels or battery as needed.

Button Type Shift-By-Wire

Heated/Ventilated Seats

With a spacious five seat cabin, the KONA Electric is designed for busy lives. It also comes equipped with advanced tech throughout.

Climate Pre-Settings

Wake up to a warm car. When connected to an external power source – like at home in your garage – you can schedule a time that you would like to have your KONA Electric pre-heated to a temperature of your choosing. This not only makes for a warm welcome on chilly mornings, but also saves battery power that would be needed to heat the car while on the road.

Virtual Energy Sound Systems

Electric cars are close to silent. While this helps reduces road noise, contributing to more pleasant, liveable cities, it can also present a possible hazard to pedestrians, who tend to take the sound of silence as an all-clear to cross the road. That’s why the KONA Electric is equipped with a melodic driving sound, announcing its presence to pedestrians, cyclists and the blind.


KONA Electric has plug types to suit your grid connection at home, or the types of fast-charging stations you have access to.

Rapid Charging

When using a 50 kW direct current (DC) charging station, KONA Electric’s lithium-ion polymer battery takes about 75 minutes to charge to 80% state of charge (SOC).

Fast Charging

When connected to a home wall box / AC charging station, it takes 9 hours 35 minutes to fully charge the 64KWh battery pack, and 6 hours 10 minutes for the shorter-range 39KWh battery pack. You can also connect to a regular household power socket using the ICCB-cable (in-cable control box) for charging times of 19 and 31 hours respectfully. KONA Electric comes equipped with a 7.2 kW on-board charger, which converts AC power from the wall socket to DC power that charges the battery in the vehicle.

Programmable Charging

KONA Electric’s advanced battery management system gives you complete control. Personalise your charging times to best fit your schedule and budget.

A wide range of different ways to charge your KONA Electric

Domestic Charging Cable

KONA Electric is equipped with an in-cable control box charging cable that you can plug right into a normal wall socket. This charging cable is intended for emergency use only. 

Charging Time to 95%: 31 hours

Home Charging Station

Many drivers of electric vehicles choose to have a wall mounted charging point installed at home for faster charging vs. a normal ‘trickle charge’ wall socket. These units are fused independently from the household circuit.
POD Point is Hyundai’s preferred partner for domestic charge points and features £500 (including VAT) of government support towards purchase and installation

Charging Time @ 7.2kW: 9:35 hours

Charging Cable for AC Charging Stations

The charging cable connects KONA Electric to public AC charging points. This cable can also be used to connect to a home wall box. Depending upon the service provider, public AC chargers can have
a range of outputs.

Rapid Charging

For the fastest possible recharging, KONA Electric can be charged at direct current (DC) rapid charger stations.

Charging Time @ 50kW (80%SOC): 75 minutes

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.

Hyundai i20 SmartSense Autonomous Emergency Braking

Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go​ (SCC w/ S&G)

This smart system maintains a set distance from the car in front, automatically reducing or increasing speed to a pre-set limit according to traffic conditions. When the car comes to a standstill in traffic, the SSC monitor will look out for movement; when movement is detected, you’ll be prompted to tap the accelerator to reactive the cruise control.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert

Using the rear corner radar, RCTA reduces the risk of collision with approaching traffic when reversing out of narrow areas with low visibility. Using radar to scan a 180-degree area behind the vehicle for approaching cross traffic, RCCW alerts the driver visually and audibly.

Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB)

The All-New Kona Electric is fitted with AEB with pedestrian detection, an advanced active safety feature that alerts drivers to emergency situations, braking automatically if required. Using front radar and camera sensors, AEB operates in three stages. Initially warning the driver visually and acoustically, it controls the brake according to the collision danger level, and applies maximum braking force to avoid a collision or minimise damage when a collision is unavoidable. The system is activated when a vehicle or pedestrian is sensed in front of the car, operating at speeds of 5 mph or above.

Lane Follow Assist

The KONA Electric Premim and Premium SE feature LFA. When activated, it keeps the SUV centred in its lane at speeds between 0 and 70 mph (functional up to 93 mph where permitted) on highways and city streets.

Lane Keep Assist

Standard on KONA Electric, LKA uses the front camera to monitor the lines of the road. In case of an unintended lane departure, it will warn the driver and can apply counter steering torque to guide the car back to the lane.

Blind Spot Detection (BSD) with Lane Keep Assist

Also using radar, BSD monitors the rear corners and, if another vehicle is detected, a visual alert appears on the exterior mirrors. If the driver then activates the indicators, an audible signal is emitted.
