New eco CUV boasts a 400 km range.

Hyundai took the wraps off the 2019 Kona Electric crossover at the Vancouver International Auto Show. This is the company’s first compact electric crossover for the Canadian market.

“Our new Kona Electric crossover is a stylish and efficient compact CUV, tailored to the needs of customers who pursue eco-focused lifestyles requiring generous range,” said Steve Flamand, Director of Product and Corporate Strategy with Hyundai Auto Canada Corp. “We’re confident it will set new standards for the electric-propelled compact CUV segment, with outstanding range flexibility, appealing design, cutting-edge connectivity and class-leading available safety features.”

The Kona Electric powertrain employs a 150 kW (201 horsepower) permanent-magnet synchronous electric motor supplied by a high-voltage 64 kWh lithium-ion battery. The motor develops 291 lb.-ft. of torque distributed to the front wheels.

A full charge can be achieved in 55 minutes with a Level-III quick charge, while a 7.2 kW Level-II charger takes nine hours and fifty minutes.
