Hyundai Kona Electric components

Electric driving technology

The carefully matched components of the electric powertrain have been engineered to provide excellent driving

characteristics and a practical everyday driving range. KONA Electric’s completely new platform was designed with an electric powertrain in mind.
This enables the space-saving integration of the battery packs without compromising passenger or cargo room.

Smart technology for intelligent driving


KONA Electric has plug types to suit your grid connection at home, or the types of fast-charging stations you have access to.

Rapid charging

When using a 50 kW direct current (DC) charging station, KONA Electric’s lithium-ion
polymer battery takes about 75 minutes to charge to 80% state of charge (SOC)

A wide range of different ways to charge your KONA Electric​

Domestic charging cable

KONA Electric is equipped with an in-cable control box charging cable that you can plug right into a normal wall socket. This charging cable is intended for emergency use only.
Charging Time to 95%: 31 hours

Home charging station

Many drivers of electric vehicles choose to have a wall mounted charging point installed at home for faster charging vs. a normal ‘trickle charge’ wall socket. These units are fused independently from the household circuit.
POD Point is Hyundai’s preferred partner for domestic charge points and features £500 (including VAT) of government support towards purchase and installation
Charging Time @ 7.2kW: 9:35 hour

Charging cable for AC charging stations

The charging cable connects KONA Electric to public AC charging points. This cable can also be used to connect to a home wall box. Depending upon the service provider, public AC chargers can have a range of outputs.

Rapid Charging

For the fastest possible recharging, KONA Electric can be charged
at direct current (DC) rapid charger stations.
Charging Time @ 50kW (80%SOC): 75 minutes

Figures shown are for comparability purposes. Only compare fuel consumption, CO2 and electric range figures with other cars tested to the same technical procedures.

These figures may not reflect real life driving results, which will depend upon a number of factors including the starting charge of the battery, accessories fitted (post-registration), variations in weather, driving styles and vehicle load.
