Bold, Edgy and Ready for Action. The 2022 Hyundai Kona Electric.

Besides the function of getting from A to B, driving should be fun, and that’s just what the 2022 Hyundai Kona Electric delivers. With impressive range and horsepower for its size, this perky subcompact EV is ready to take on the city streets, back country roads and everything in between. While its edgy exterior gives the eyes something to enjoy, the interior is modern, comfortable and loaded with the latest tech. 

There is much more to the Kona Electric than just pep and range. Here’s what makes this electric vehicle one of the most popular EVs this year.

Power and Performance

A 64kWh battery pack powers the Hyundai Kona Electric’s 201-horsepower engine. With instant torque, this peppy front-wheel-drive EV can go from 0 to 100km/h in only 7.6 seconds. While it isn’t the sportiest car out there, the Kona Electric cruises smoothly at highway speeds and handles like a dream thanks to its heavy battery mounted in the floor and low center of gravity. 

Preferred and Ultimate models come standard with a Drive Mode Select feature that lets you adjust the steering feel to match your driving style. Choose between Comfort, Eco for more conservative power delivery, Eco+ to further maximize your efficiency or Sport mode, which uses the electric power to boost torque levels for a more dynamic driving experience.

Range, Battery and Charging

The Kona EV can go up to 415 km on a full charge. What’s super cool about this EV is the regenerative braking system that your fingertips can control with paddles behind the steering wheel. The left paddle increases energy recovery by upping deceleration, while the right paddle decreases regeneration for a more natural coast when braking.

Although you can charge the Hyundai Kona Electric on a 120-volt household outlet, the 240-volt outlet is best for at-home charging.

  • 240V – 9 hours 15 minutes(With Purchase of Level 2 Home Charging Station)
  • 120V – 49 hours 15 minutes (Level 1 Charger Included with Vehicle)
  • DC Fast Charge – 47 minutes for 80% (estimated)

Interior and Cargo Space

The Kona Electric’s stylish interior is super comfortable. An available 8-way power driver’s seat with lumbar can be customized to hug any body shape. Along with heated seats, the heated leather-wrapped steering wheel takes the edge off during the winter months. Although the Kona isn’t famous for its cargo space, you can fit 5 carry-on suitcases in the trunk and 15 if you put the rear seats down.

An 8-inch touchscreen comes standard in the 2022 Hyundai Kona Electric but can be upgraded to an impressive 10.25-inch three-way split-screen with navigation.

Also included:

  • Rearview camera
  • Apple CarPlay
  • Android Auto
  • 6-speaker audio system (can be upgraded to 8-speaker harman/kardon® premium audio system)
