An available power sunroof creates even more space within the KONA EV.

The trunk features up to 45.8 cubic feet of space. You’ll be able to easily stow some bags and even furniture for your home or to swap with a friend.


Commanding Technology

Your Hyundai command center comes with many items to keep you connected, starting with the 7-inch gauge cluster that is paired with the optional Heads-up Display. This provides you with car stats that are projected onto the windshield.

In the middle, an upgraded 10.25-inch touchscreen navigation system displays your favorite apps, with the help of Android Auto™ or Apple CarPlay® integration. So that you can continue to use the smartphone maps or access your library, make sure that you add the available wireless device charging to keep your phone all juiced up.

To hear tunes included on your playlists or on the radio, use the 8-speaker Infinity® Premium Audio system, with Clari-Fi™ Music Restoration Technology.


Meet Your New Safety Lookout

Hyundai Kona EV SEL Blue WaveHyundai SmartSense serves as an even better lookout than your front-seat or back-seat passengers! Lane Keeping Assist helps you stay in your lane, while the Driver Attention Warning feature monitors how well you’re staying in your lane. It suggests that you take a break, if it notices a pattern of drifting.

Wraparound surveillance also can be found in the KONA EV. This includes the available Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Blind-Spot Collision Warning, and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning. Plus, you can add Pedestrian Detection to your forward-facing system. You’ll feel confident knowing that every area is clear forward, backward, and on either side of your KONA EV.

You’ll also receive guidance when parking, with the available Parking Distance Warning – Reverse. The optional Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go gives you extra assistance when managing your speed and the distance from vehicles ahead of you.


Generate More Performance

One charge will enable you to motor around for up to 258 miles—a best-in-class distinction among other comparable vehicles. Your battery gains a boost any time you use your brakes, by converting that energy into electricity. Front-wheel drive and the Drive Mode Select feature work together to produce a satisfying ride. Choose from Comfort, Eco, and Sport modes to customize and enhance your driving capabilities.
