See Why So Many Shoppers Buy From Charlie Clark Nissan El Paso
Introduced relatively recently in 2019, the Hyundai Kona follows the Ioniq as Hyundai's second fully electric vehicle. With only a few years of used models to examine, the differences between the first release and the most recent new Kona electric vehicles make the comparison simple. So what makes the Kona a great used EV, and does it have any cons worth considering? Join us as we take a look at what you can expect with Hyundai Kona Electric Vehicle ownership.
Hyundai Kona EV Range And Battery Motor
The first choice you have to make when considering a used Hyundai Kona EV is which of the batteries will suit your lifestyle more. The smaller battery is the, 39.2 kWh that reaches a mild 155 miles on a single charge. The standard battery on most Konas you will find is the larger 64 kWh battery that ranges from 258 - 300 miles depending upon the model year, with newer vehicles reaching the higher end of the maximum range.
You can expect a smooth and relatively quiet ride when driving a Hyundai Kona. The Kona EV has near instantaneous torque thanks to the electric motor and takes off the line quickly. The Hyundai Kona EV is by no means a sports car, but it does respond well, and driving it is relaxing, if uneventful.
Safety In The Hyundai Kona EV
The EV and standard Kona models are similar regarding safety and interior features. The Hyundai Kona has not failed to reach a five-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), along with a 9.9/10 score from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). What does the Kona do right to earn this score? In addition to a flawless crash test, the Hyundai Kona includes the following standard safety features:
• Rearview camera • Forward collision warning • Forward automatic emergency braking • Pedestrian detection • Blind-spot monitoring • Rear cross-traffic alert • Lane-keep assist • Lane-departure warning • Driver-attention monitoring • Rear-seat alert (reminds you to check the back seats for kids or pets before you exit the vehicle)
Value Of The Hyundai Kona
The Kona has an industry-standard five-year/60,000-mile limited warranty and a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. Most used models will fall into the manufacturer's warranty. Used 2019 Hyundai Kona vehicles tend to be listed in the range of $23,000 - $26,000 as of the time of writing. For a low mileage 2023 Kona EV, you can expect to pay upwards of $33,000 for fully loaded models. While it comes in at a higher initial price than competitors' EVs, the Hyundai Kona retains its value year-over-year and brings an above-average experience.
Should You Buy A Used Hyundai Kona EV?
The Kona EV falls in a healthy middle-ground niche as a superb long-distance electric vehicle that combines luxury and affordability. The lowest-end Kona vehicles make great city cars and daily commuter vehicles. Newer and long-distance models of the Kona are a fantastic replacement for any traditional gas-powered vehicle. The most considerable downside of EVs is the lack of mass appeal and limited charging options when away from home. However, electric vehicle charging stations are on the rise, and the Kona can charge 10% - 80% in as little as 45 minutes, getting you around 100 miles of charge in 20 minutes.
