    • The Kona EV. Former Chevy Bolt EV owner.

      Coming from a Chevrolet Bolt EV I purchased 2 years back I had decided after the short time I had with the car that it was time for a change. After a walk around of the vehicle and a test drive I knew what I was missing out on. The Kona EV was a better vehicle in every way except one compared to the Bolt, 0-60 time. While the Bolt could accelerate faster then the Kona you could hardly tell the difference. Exterior: The Kona Electric is a sporty looking sub compact SUV and has some very nice touches that will turn some heads. I bought the Kona EV with the SEL trim in what they call "chalk" white with a two tone paint job that made the roof a glossy black. The front facia looks futuristic and grabs some elements from the ICE Kona, like the headlights and LEDs. There is a pattern on the front where the grille would be that is dimpled and that means hard to clean but makes the car look different and ultimately is when people say "that's definitely an electric car." There is only one small intake under the grille to let air in. The rear and sides of the Kona EV look very similar to the ICE Kona with a couple small changes like the back bumper and the fact that there isn't a tail pipe. Interior: I have only one complaint about the interior of the Kona EV. While they took time to make the heated seats comfortable for long trips a intuitive but a little dated infotainment system and a nice digital instrument cluster they could not have made the materials out of a cheaper plastic. I can look past some of the plastic with the included telescopic adjustable steering wheel and the included lane assist as well as collision warning but it just feels cheap, plain and simple. There is enough room for two full size adults in the front seat (I'm 6') and while the back is a little tight the seats are comfortable and have enough room for 3 in the back, or two comfortably with two cup holders. The Drive: The Kona EV drives as if it were stuck to the road, it is a very grounded car and you can tell it's heavy when you drive it. It can turn with ease and you will have no problem getting up to speed on the on ramps or when passing BUT... Hyundai you really need to put better tires on this car. The tires that are on them now do NOT help the car with acceleration. There is to much wheel spin and while it is pretty fun to do a slight burnout it is bad for handling. This is what sold me on the Kona EV, the range is fantastic! In the summer I consistently get over 300 miles of range at 80 degrees Fahrenheit. I don't drive my car like a grandma either, no offence. High speed driving is a little lower at 280 miles buy still well over the advertised 258 miles. In conclusion the Kona EV still has some room for improvement but that should not stop anyone from considering this over a Bolt EV, Kia e Niro, or any other sub compact SUV EV.
    • Affordable option with great gas mileage

      The Kona is a great value for someone who doesn't need all the bells and whistles that some of the fancier SUV models come with. It's quite small -- I probably wouldn't recommend it for a family. But for me, it's perfect. I can get 40+ MPG on the highway and, when the back seats are folded down, my bike fits perfectly. My only regret is that I didn't get the AWD option, as the Kona struggled up some bigger hills on a recent road trip to Tennessee.
    • Probably best vehicle we have owned.

      Great scoot and handling with a decent ride and noise level. AWD with all season tires more than adequate. Style and sunset orange color get lots of notice and complements
