Hyundai Kona EV Surpasses 100,000 Global Units Sold

Hyundai's Kona electric has sold very well since it launched

  • Hyundai’s electric Kona topped 100,000 units sold globally since its launched two years ago


The Hyundai Kona EV has had quite a run of success since launching two years ago as one of the first electric crossovers. In June, the Kona EV surpassed the 100,000 units sold mark.

In North America, the Hyundai Kona EV is offered with a 64-kWh lithium-ion battery that delivers 415 kilometres (258 miles) of range. It used to be the segment leader in range until the Chevrolet Bolt was redesigned for 2020 with 417 kilometres (259 miles). That said, the Kona EV still delivers more than respectable range.

It delivers 201 horsepower and can be charged back to life in 9.0 hours using a 220 volt outlet.

Hyundai isn’t done with electric vehicles either. The Korean automaker hopes to sell 560,000 BEV models annually by 2025. It offers the Hyundai IONIQ as well as the Kona in North America.
