- Car and Driver rating: 8/10
- EPA-rated driving range: 258 miles
With a starting price of $34,885, the Hyundai Kona Electric is one of the EV segment’s best values. That sum nabs buyers the base Kona Electric SE, which comes standard with an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The model may be tough to find, though, as the automaker limits sales of the Kona Electric to just a handful of states (Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Maine, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, and Washington).
The Kona Electric features a front-mounted 201-hp electric motor that’s powered by a 64.0-kWh battery pack. This combo nets this front-drive EV respectable acceleration figures, with a 2019 Kona Electric hitting the mile-a-minute mark in 6.4 seconds.
Despite its EPA-rated driving range of 258 miles, the aforementioned 2019 Kona Electric delivered 160 miles of driving range on our 75-mph highway range test.
