WITH a focus on reducing the entry cost for its popular Kona Electric model, Hyundai has added a Standard Range variant, as well as reducing the price of its now renamed Extended Range variants.
Sharing all the technology, safety and convenience features, of its Extended Range siblings, the new 100kW/39.2kWh entry powertrain makes the ground-breaking Kona Electric small SUV even more accessible than ever.
The renamed Kona Electric Extended Range (150kW/64kWh) Elite and Highlander powertrain variants have received $1,500 and $2,000 price reductions respectively.
“The new Kona Electric Standard Range gives customers zero-emissions electric motoring in an attractive, sporty and practical small SUV, and at more accessible price.” Hyundai Australia CEO Jun Heo said.
“It is Hyundai’s intention to establish leadership for eco cars in Australia. We already have the most diverse range of electrified vehicles including Kona Electric, NEXO our hydrogen-powered SUV and the soon to launch game changing IONIQ 5,” he added.
“Hyundai is leading Australia’s charge towards a greener transport future.”
The new Kona Electric Standard Range powertrain delivers ample performance thanks to the fitment of a 327V, 39.2kWh lithium-ion polymer battery.
The Standard Range 39.2kWh battery versions will continue to deliver Kona Electric’s renowned instant acceleration through a 100kW permanent-magnet synchronous motor, delivering 395Nm of torque.
The Standard Range Kona Electric is available for $54.500 for the Elite variant and $58,000 for the Highlander. The Extended Range versions are priced at $60,500 and $64,000 respectively. All prices are plus on-roads.
