New look, same drive: it starts at just under 36,000 euros
As early as September 2020, Hyundai showed launched the Kona and announced the first prizes in November. Now the prices for the Kona Elektro are also mentioned: The purely electrically powered SUV is available from 35,650 euros. The PDF price list on Hyundai.de still contains the old version, but there is also the new Kona Elektro in the configurator.
The new design differs significantly. The Kona Elektro drives up with a fully closed front. The loading flap is also integrated there, but not hidden under a logo, but on the side so that the joints reveal the electric drive.
Compared to the pre-facelift model, the logo has moved up onto the sheet metal in front of the bonnet. As usual, the front lights are distributed over two floors. The LED daytime running lights above) have now become narrower, however, the headlights now show three elements instead of two:
