Hyundai Motor has released a first teaser image of its first fully-electric SUV, the Kona Electric, ahead of the official unveiling on 27 February. Hyundai will be the first automotive brand across Europe to make an all-electric compact SUV available to everyone.
Here are some more details from Hyundai’s press release :-
Efficiency meets fun-to-drive.
The All-New Kona Electric will feature two different powertrain versions offering customers one of the most powerful electric engines on the market with a class leading range of almost 470 kilometres (internal target under WLTP regulations) and a great fun-to-drive character. Furthermore, drivers will benefit from a wide range of convenience and connectivity features as well as active safety and driving assistance technologies.
Hyundai Motor merges the two hottest trends in the automotive market.
The All-New Kona Electric enables customers to combine the two worlds of eco-mobility and SUV style. In bringing this car to the market, Hyundai Motor is the first carmaker in Europe to merge these two hottest industry trends.
Hyundai Motor is at the forefront of eco mobility, already offering the broadest range of powertrains. Hyundai marketed the first mass-produced fuel cell vehicle, the ix35 FCEV, and recently introduced its successor, the All-New Nexo. Furthermore, the successful IONIQ is the only car available with three different electrified powertrains in one body type. The IONIQ Electric has just been ranked first in the prestigious ADAC EcoTest 2017.
Further details will be disclosed on 27 February, ahead of the car’s world premiere at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.
