Exceptional electric performance.

The KONA Electric delivers exceptional electric performance and a generous driving range of up to 300 miles.


Please note: KONA Electric is available from Stock or Pipeline only and not available to factory order. Please check with your local Hyundai Retailer for availability.


High power. Excellent range. Thrilling acceleration.

Nobody ever said that electric mobility had to be boring. Lightning-quick off the line thanks to 395 Nm of torque delivered by the all-electric powertrain, this sporty SUV is seriously fun to drive – accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in only 7.9 seconds. Available with two different powertrain versions, you can pick your power and preferred range: the 39.2 kWh battery with up to 180 miles driving range. Or the 64 kWh version that delivers up to 300 miles range on a single charge.

64 kWh




39.2 kWh




Just as there is a range of factors that affect the fuel efficiency of an internal combustion engine (ICE), the total electric driving range will be affected by the size of the battery, your driving style, the outside temperature, any passengers you are carrying and more.

    Electric driving technology.

    The carefully matched components of the electric powertrain have been engineered to provide excellent driving characteristics and a practical everyday driving range. The specially designed platform enables a space-saving integration of the battery packs without compromising roominess.

    Lithium-ion polymer battery.

    The KONA Electric’s lithium-ion polymer battery has a lower memory sensitivity and excellent charge efficiency compared to conventional batteries.

    The 64 kWh battery is paired with an electric motor which delivers of 204PS (150 kW). The 39.2 kWh battery comes with an electric motor delivering 136PS (100 kW).

    Smart technology for intelligent driving.

    Maximise your range while driving with KONA Electric’s regenerative braking systems which let you charge the battery by using the electric motor to slow the car.

      Adjustable regenerative braking.

      Braking is optimised to get the most out of the recuperative 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.

      Recuperative braking levels.

      Level 0: Recuperative braking is not in operation and the battery is not being charged. Level 1 to level 3: With each level higher, the car decelerates more using the electric motor, increasing the charging strength at the same time. The higher the level, the more the car slows and charges the battery when you take your foot off the accelerator.

      1-paddle 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.

      Smart regenerative braking.

      The smart regenerative braking system utilises the on-board radar sensor to automatically control the level of recuperative braking to react to the traffic ahead. Additionally, it also detects if the KONA Electric is driving up or downhill and adjusts accordingly.

    Charge fully over night or top up on the go.

    Depending on your grid connection at home or the type of fast charging station you have access to, the KONA Electric offers various possibilities and plug types for charging.

      39.2 kWh battery.

      KONA Electric’s lithium-ion polymer battery doesn't take too long to charge from 10% to 80 % state of charge (SOC) when using a 100 kW direct current (DC) fast-charger station. If connected to a 50 kW station, this charging time is a bit longer.

      For the 39.2 kWh battery pack, charging from 10-100% SOC when connected to a home wall box or public AC charging station, takes less time using the 10.5 kW triple phase on-board charger (OBC) than using the 7.2 kW single phase OBC.
