    2024 Hyundai Kona EV SE

    Shorter 201-mile range SE trim starts at $34,050 incl. $1,375 D&H.​

    Last September, Hyundai unveiled its 2024 Kona SUV. The all-new Kona lineup was positioned as an upscale small CUV with the all-electric offering a range of 261 miles.

    The second-generation Kona was developed with an electrified powertrain first, in line with the company’s accelerated electrification strategy announcement that will bring 11 new Hyundai EVs to market globally by 2030.

    The all-new, second gen Kona retains its tough character, supporting active lifestyles for customers of all ages, while offering innovative technologies and convenience features that provide a safe and comfortable driving experience. Among the upgrades are dual, 12.3-inch panoramic display screens, Digital Key 2 Touch, Over-the-Air (OTA) software updates and Hyundai’s next-generation infotainment system.

    2024 Kona EV Drivetrain

    Kona Electric, equipped with the 64.8 kWh battery delivers 261 miles of range and can recharge from 10 percent to 80 percent in approximately 43 minutes when attached to a 150 KW DCFC. The smaller 48.6 kWh standard battery provides 200 miles of range based on preliminary internal tests.

    2024 Kona EV Design

    Hyundai transitioned from a conventional ICE-to-EV platform development process to an EV-to-ICE development process, resulting in an EV-centric exterior that accentuates the Kona’s unique look with an unexpected combination of sleek and rugged design.

    With a drag coefficient of just 0.27, the new Kona Electric aerodynamic performance is superlative without sacrificing its unique character. Between the aerodynamic nose and rear liftgate, sculpted wheel arch armor and parametric surfaces add character to pure volume, with dynamic chrome lines connecting the belt line to the rear spoiler and integrated center high-mounted stop lamp. A Pixelated Seamless Horizon Lamp and Pixel graphics add a unique flourish.

    Hyundai February 2024 Sales and Highlights

    With so many OEMs including GM, Ford, and Tesla tamping down or outright reducing the manufacturing volume of their BEV lineup, one brand is taking a different tack. Well sort of since the Ioniq 6 was not yet being sold in February of 2023 but there is no slowdown or stoppage of Ioniq 6 or Kona EV volumes being produced. That I know of anyway.

    Hyundai reported record-breaking total February 2024 sales of 60,341 vehicles, up 5.8% increase compared to the 57,044 sold in February of 2023.

    YTD sales still have a bit of catching up to do as the brand has sold 107,884 in all of 2024, down 1.1% below the 109,045 sold through the same period of 2023.

    Hyundai set sales records in February for Tucson (+8%), Tucson PHEV (+280%), Tucson HEV (+29%), Palisade (+16%), and Kona EV (+15%). Hyundai’s eco-friendly vehicle sales grew 7%, while fleet volume was 8.3%. Hyundai also achieved record-breaking retail sales of 55,341, a 5% increase year-over-year.
