Generally speaking, instead of a four-cylinder engine, Kona Electric is powered by a 201hp electric motor and the large battery pack can travel up to 305km per charge. This is important because how far an electric vehicle will travel with a single battery is the most important factor in the renewed electric vehicle market.
Chevrolet’s new Bolt EUV has a claimed range of 400km, while the Tesla Model Y can travel 500km per charge. Kona Eektrik offers competitive driving range as well as acceleration, fast handling and an unrivaled standard warranty and free maintenance package.
Kona Electric is getting a styling update for 2022 that includes new front and rear bumpers, new wheel designs and a finely tuned interior that now comes standard with a 10.3-inch digital instrument display. The top Ultimate trim has been eliminated to simplify the lineup over the base SEL and luxury Limited models. We recommend the SEL trim with the optional Convenience package. While the SEL is pretty well-equipped right out the door, it still packs a lot of desirable features, including a convenience package, sunroof, wireless smartphone charging pad and heated front seats. A 201hp electric motor drives the front wheels (no four-wheel drive) and is powered by a 64.0 kWh battery pack. As with the regular Kona, the electric version offers lively driving dynamics, making it fun to run in the twisty two lanes. It doesn’t offer sports car-level thrills, but for a compact SUV it’s challenging to drive. It also cruises smoothly at highway speeds and feels solid and upright thanks to the heavy floor-mounted battery and the consequent low center of gravity.
The KonaElectric cabin is almost identical to the one found in its gas-powered counterpart: it’s made of quality materials, it’s comfortable, and it’s feature-rich. The rear seat and trunk are narrow by subcompact crossover standards, but inside the Electric it’s no smaller than the standard model, as the Kona was designed from the ground up to house a battery pack. Luggage space is also the same as the regular Kona; It can fit five suitcases with the rear seats in place, and a total of 15 suitcases with the seats folded down. All models come with a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a 10.3-inch reconfigurable digital instrumentation display; Base SEL models come with an 8.0-inch touchscreen, while an upgrade to the Limited adds a 10.3-inch screen with navigation. A six-speaker sound system is standard, while the Limited model comes with an eight-speaker Infinity sound system that gives a much richer sound.
