Get That Used Hyundai Kona EV You've Been Wanting
See Why So Many Shoppers Buy From Charlie Clark
With the bevy of electric vehicles available on the market today, it can be challenging to find one that comes at an affordable price without skipping on comfort and safety. However, you may want to stop your search here and consider a Hyundai Kona EV and all a used model can offer. With a modest price tag, great electric range, and impressive style, the EV model of Hyundai's already-established Kona brand takes the subcompact crossover SUV into new territory. So, what makes a Hyundai Kona EV special when stacking up to the competition?
Right out the gate, the Hyundai Kona EV is one of the most reasonably priced electric vehicles available today. While used inventories are somewhat limited, as the car was only introduced in 2018, it has established itself as an affordable competitor with used prices that range from $18,000 - $26,000, depending upon the model year. Compared to the Tesla Model Y, the Hyundai Kona EV is half the price with many of the same features and only a slightly lower range.
How far can the Hyundai Kona EV go on a single charge? A used Hyundai Kona EV can get upwards of 258 miles without recharging, making it a fantastic commuter car and a decent road trip vehicle for trips inside the state. Furthermore, even if you run the battery almost dry, the Kona can recharge in under 10 hours on 240v power, and on the newest models with access to a supercharge DC charger, it can go from 10% to 100% in just over 40 minutes. With the superchargers, it gets almost 200 miles of range in as little as half an hour, shedding the shackles of the limited driving area that is a common complaint of most electric vehicles.
Most older electric vehicles can tend to look a bit odd and overly futuristic, creating an almost uncanny valley effect with their anachronism. However, the Kona EV does the electric vehicle justice by providing a sleek and well-designed exterior alongside a modern interior that features several updates from the original Hyundai Kona. Complimenting its formal body, the Kona has the following features:
• Dual-function LED headlights • Intuitive and extensive touchscreen infotainment system • Push to start and keyless entry • Android Auto • Apple Car Play • Several USB ports • Wireless charging (on newer models) • Optional Sunroof • Bold faux leather interior • Optional heated seats and steering wheel
Cons Of The Hyundai Kona EV
The Hyundai Kona EV is comfortable in the front, offering ample head and leg room. Yet, adults will struggle in the back seat as the relatively small frame has to make sacrifices somewhere, and that's with the slightly raised floor in the rear, making anyone it a struggle to find comfort for the average-height adult.
The EV Limitation
While the Kona can go a long way on a single charge, it still cannot go coast to coast without an extensive plan, significant detours, and numerous charging stops. Until EVs receive more roadside charging options in rural areas, they will struggle to be anything more than local drivers, necessitating a second car or other travel plans when venturing too far from home.
