KONA Electric: Europe's first all-electric compact SUV
With the launch of KONA Electric, Hyundai became the first automaker to combine the two most important industry trends for the European market. Standing out with its fully electric powertrain and compact SUV body style, Hyundai KONA Electric can meet all expectations at the same time with its powerful electric motor, long driving range and stylish appearance. The vehicle, which is produced in the Ulsan factories in South Korea and the Nosovice factories in Czechia, also contributes to the zero emission and clean environment strategy that Hyundai wants to realize by 2040.
