Hyundai announced its popular Kona all-electric crossover will start at $46,399 for the 2024 model year.
Available later in December, the revamped Kona comes in two trim levels; the Preferred being the base model, while the upmarket Ultimate starts at $51,199. Both models will feature 420 km of range (up 5 km from the 2023 model) from its 64.8 kWh battery, which powers a 201 hp front-mounted motor.
Standard equipment includes heated front seats, heated steering wheel and a heat pump, along with a 12.3-inch touchscreen and Hyundai’s Smartsense suite of safety features. Available on the Ultimate is Bose premium audio system, a head-up display, a wireless device charger as well as the Digital Key technology.
The interior is larger than the previous model and offers 723 L of rear cargo volume with rear seatbacks up and 1,803 L with seatbacks folded down. The shifter has also been moved from the centre console to the steering column for more usable room.
Hyundai says it has sold 100,000 Kona crossovers since its launch in 2018 and, impressively, 20,000 of those were Kona EVs.
