Interior design

This Premium SE model comes with luxurious features that will transform your driving experience such as electric adjustable leather seats, heated and ventilated front seats, plus heated rear seats and heated stearing wheel. The dashboard boasts an intuitive 7" digital cluster display making critical information readable at a glance, whilst the centre-mounted 10.3" touchscreen gives quick access to car functions including navigation. 

Its standard infotainment system is easy to use and comes with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone mirroring, so you can seamlessly use the sat-nav and music apps on your smartphone on the Kona’s screen.

Exterior design

The unique closed-off front grille, exclusive aerodynamic 17" alloy wheels and the distinct frame add flair to the design. This trim offers privacy glass on the rear sides and tailgate for a premium finish.

Driving and controls

Rapid charging is possible through a CCS connection. The maximum rapid charge power is 77 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 64 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 45 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 170 miles of range.

The Kona Electric is great to drive, being punchy in town and comfy and quiet on the motorway. It has a very commendable range for its size, too.

Comfort and convenience

The headlights will turn on automatically thanks to their Dusk Sensor, the windscreen wipers will turn on and adjust automatically thanks to their Rain Sensor and the Climate Control will even automatically de-fog your front windshield! 

The Kona Electric is also very clever at keeping you and your occupants safe, with features including Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Recognition and Blind Spot Detection.
