Hyundai Kona

Hyundai Kona Electric

The Hyundai Kona has a 64kWh battery, a range of 300 miles and fast charging from 10% – 80% in as little as 47 minutes on a 100kW DC rapid charger, charging from empty to full on a standard 7kW charger takes 9 hours 15 minutes. Progress is quick, 0-62 mph in 7.9 seconds and a top speed of 104 mph. The Kona is not a large car, similar in size to a Fiat 500x, Renault Captur of Ford Puma and the position of the batteries eats into the boot capacity leaving only 332 litres of space, by comparison the Ford Fiesta has a 311 litre boot. The top trim, Ultimate, with electric seats, heated and cooled in the front and a glass roof, is astonishingly good value (in the present climate) at £1299 Advance Payment which includes the instillation of a home charger or should you not have room you can opt to have membership to BP Pulse (usually £7.85 per month) with reduced rates from 30p per kW of charge.
