The electric version of the new Hyundai Kona – Hyundai’s new little SUV – will make its debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show and go on sale shortly after.
The new Hyundai Kona was revealed back in June as Hyundai pile in to the battle for the wallets of those wanting a proper little urban warrior SUV. And it looks very convincing.
With its bold and funky styling, Hyundai are clearly going after a much younger demographic with the Kona, and to our eyes they’ve got the balance between funky and practical just right.
At launch Hyundai revealed the Koan will come with a choice of the very good 118bhp 1.0 litre T-GDi with manual gearbox as well as a 1.6 T-GDi with 174bhp and a seven-speed DSG. There will also, almost certainly, be a diesel Kona at some point.
But there is one other model we already know is coming – the electric Kona.
Hyundai confirmed the Kona EV would arrive in 2018 when they revealed the Kona, but it now looks like that will be pretty early in the year, with Korean press saying it will debut at the Geneva Motor Show at the start of March, and go on sale very soon after.
Although its expected to costs from around £30k, the Kona EV looks set to be a cracking little urban SUV, with enough range – Hyundai reckon around 240 miles on a single charge – to make it usable far beyond running around town on errands.
