Range comparision based on electric range only. Rapid charging comparison based on rapid charge rate. Fuel economy based on start with full battery and average fuel consumption over first 50 mile. Comparisons can be based on estimates.

Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)

Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Hyundai Kona Electric 40 kWh. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.

NOTE: Hyundai has not released details about the on-board charger of the Kona. The information below is based on estimatation of the most likely on-board charger.

Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)
Charging Point Car Uses Power Time Rate
Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 20h15m 7 mph
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 12h30m 12 mph

3-phase 32A (22 kW) 230V / 1x31A 7.2 kW † 6h30m 23 mph

† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.

Rapid Charging (10 -> 80%)

Fastcharging is only possible at public charging points. Fastchargers enable longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. As fastcharges will only charge a battery up to 80% of its capacity at full speed, the optimal fastcharge is between 10% and 80% SoC. The fastcharge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for fastcharging the Hyundai Kona Electric 40 kWh.

NOTE: Hyundai has not released details about fast charging the Kona. The information below is based on estimated values of the most likely fast charging capabilities.

All about the Hyundai Kona Electric 40 kWh

Pricing

The Hyundai Kona Electric 40 kWh has an estimatedn On The Road Price (OTR) of £34,500. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Hyundai Kona Electric 40 kWh is eligible for the Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £4,500. The grant will be applied to the final invoice price of the car. The OTR Price including the PICG for the Hyundai Kona Electric 40 kWh is £30,000.

Drivetrain and Performance

The Hyundai Kona Electric 40 kWh is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The maximum power of the Hyundai Kona Electric 40 kWh is 99 kW (133 hp). The maximum torque is 291 lb-ft. The Hyundai Kona Electric 40 kWh is front wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 9.3 seconds. The top speed is 104 mph.

Battery and Charging

The battery of the Hyundai Kona Electric 40 kWh has an estimated total capacity of 42 kWh. The usable capacity is 39.2 kWh. A range of about 150 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.

For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 105 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 225 mi.

Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 7.2 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 6 hours 30 minutes. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 20 hours 15 minutes.

Rapid charging is possible through a CCS connection (expected). The maximum rapid charge power is 50 kW, which charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 35 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 105 miles of range.

Energy Consumption

The combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Hyundai Kona Electric 40 kWh is about 260 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 155 mpg in a traditional petrol car.

The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 370 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 170 Wh per mile.

CO2 Emission

The Hyundai Kona Electric 40 kWh emits no CO2 during driving. This only includes direct emissions from the vehicle itself. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Vehicles with an internal combustion engine will always emit CO2 during driving. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels.
