Hyundai’s 2019 Kona Electric

All juiced up and ready to go

BY MICHAEL FRANK — Winter 2019


ith 258 miles of range, no other EV anywhere near the expected $37,000 price of the new Hyundai Kona Electric can go as far on a single charge. Still, this cute ute’s not just about dancing past gas stations. It comes standard with serious safety tech, including adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, and lane keeping. Best part? It drives like a sporty car, unlike many previous EVs that felt more like science experiments. It accelerates quickly, but also steers and makes evasive maneuvers adroitly, inspiring confidence, and even smiles, like any good car should.
