Electric powertrain – 415 km driving range
The Kona electric is seriously fun to drive and offers outstanding range flexibility. Travel up to 415 kilometres^ with a full charge.

Drivers can also enjoy hands-on input to adjust the level of regenerative braking by using the mounted paddles on the steering wheel.

Beneficial for Canadian winters, the Battery Temperature Management System helps ensure battery performance does not suffer at low temperatures. It will pre-warm the battery while the vehicle is connected to the charger to help maximize performance and minimize cold temperature range loss.
