* 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
** Up to 80% state of charge, if charged at a 50 kW DC charging station
The high-power, yet compact, electric
motor in Kona Electric develops 150 kW (204 PS)
and is capable of accelerating from 0 – 62 mph
in 7.9 seconds.
Hyundai decided to use a lithium-ion polymer battery pack for the Kona Electric instead of
conventional nickel-metal hybrid batteries. This provides lower memory sensitivity and excellent
charge and discharge efficiency, along with outstanding maximum output.
A newly developed Battery Thermal Management system in KONA Electric
also enables higher battery efficiency and a longer battery life.
It's water cooled through the connection to the
A/C system and heated by an electric heating element.
Maximise your driving range with KONA Electric’s regenerative braking systems, which lets you charge
the battery by using the electric motor to slow the car.
Regenerative braking is not in operation
and the battery is not being charged.
Car decelerates slightly using the electric motor,
and charging strength is the lowest.
Car decelerates faster than level 1 ,
and charging strength is stronger than level 1.
Car decelerates faster than level 2 ,
and charging strength is stronger than level 2.
Braking is optimised to get the most out of the regenerative braking system, helping KONA Electric maintain a healthy
state of charge (SOC). The driver can easily adjust the level of regenerative braking through the paddle shifters behind
the steering wheel.
Pull the left paddle shifter and hold to activate maximum strength
regenerative braking. It is possible to stop the car in this way – without using
the conventional brake pedal. Charging strength is the strongest in this mode.
It is also possible to actively brake the car using the paddle shifter.
Simply pull the left paddle shifter and hold.
You can slow the car to a complete stop in this way without pressing the conventional brake pedal.
The Smart regenerative braking system utilizes the on-board radar sensor to automatically control the level of
regenerative braking to react to the traffic ahead. Additionally, it also detects if the KONA Electric is driving up or downhill
and adjusts accordingly.
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.
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
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
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.
For the fastest possible recharging, KONA Electric can be charged
at direct current (DC) rapid charger stations.
Charging Time @ 50kW (80%SOC): 75 minutes
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Galactic Grey metallic paint is included as standard, at no additional cost.
These figures were obtained after the battery had been fully charged. The Kona Electric is a battery electric vehicle requiring mains electricity for charging. There is a new test for fuel consumption, CO2 and electric range figures. The electric range shown was achieved using the new test procedure. Figures shown are for comparability purposes; only compare fuel consumption, CO2 and electric range figures with other cars tested to the same technical procedures. *These figures may not reflect real life driving results, which will depend upon a number of factors including the starting charge of the battery, accessories fitted (post-registration), variations in weather, driving styles and vehicle load.
