“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 Motor Company Australia Chief Executive Officer, 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.
“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 powertrain offers a real-world all-electric range of up to 305km when tested to WLTP standards.
Kona Electric Standard Range powertrain has the highest torque output, with longest real-world driving range and battery efficiency, versus its direct competitors.
