Hyundai Kona electric teased ahead of its global debut on 27 February

Hyundai has released the first teaser for the Kona electric ahead of its global debut on 27 February 2018. Reports indicate that the company’s first fully-electric SUV will be offered in two powertrain options with a travel range of 470kms and 500kms. Although details for the vehicle will be revealed later this month, Hyundai will officially introduce the vehicle at the Geneva Motor Show. Sometime in the second quarter of 2018, the electric version will be introduced in the United States. The vehicle is expected to make it to India sometime in 2019.

The electric version is available with 40kWh and 60kWh battery packs from the Chevy Bolt which is supplied by LG Chemicals. The standard version on the other hand is available in petrol and diesel engine options. The 2-litre petrol engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission generates 147bhp of power and 179Nm of peak torque, while a more powerful 1.6-litre turbocharged diesel engine makes 175bhp and 265Nm of peak torque. The smaller engine comes paired to a seven-speed dual clutch auto transmission. The Kona will also get a 1-litre turbo diesel engine mated to a six-speed manual gearbox that generates 118bhp of power and 172Nm of peak torque. It is believed that the European market might get the 1.6-litre diesel engine.

More details about the electric version of the Hyundai Kona will be known in the days to come.
