2019 Hyundai Kona EV will have 2 battery pack options

Just like the Kia Niro EV, the Hyundai Kona EV will be third powertrain option for the new vehicle. First, Hyundai will sell the standard powertrain version, followed by a plug-in hybrid Kona. Then, later next year, Hyundai will release a pure electric version of the Hyundai Kona crossover utility vehicle.

Original reports were that the Kona would have a 40 kWh battery pack, and while that’s still true, we’ve just learned that the Kona EV will also come with a larger, optional, 60 kWh lithium ion battery pack built by LG that should be good for around 210 miles of range.

Along with class-leading EV range, the Kona Electric will have a full suite of electronic safety features and will have the capacity to quick charge at 150 kW chargers.

Pricing for the Kona Electric is expected to be under $40,000 USD.
