If you’re still unsure about switching from conventional to electric power, the Hyundai Kona EV could be the one that gives you that final nudge. It’s arguably one of the most all-rounded electric cars out there.
Power comes from a 64kWh battery which develops a very healthy 201bhp. With a 0-60mph time of 7.9 seconds, top speed 104mph and a potential range of 305 miles, you now have the sort of family-sized SUV that really can be used on a day to day basis for your normal commute, shopping run plus a holiday outing without range anxiety creeping in. For many people those sorts of figures will mean charging the car on a Sunday night will provide sufficient juice in the battery to get you through the entire working week. Give it another blast on Friday night and you’ll have enough for trips to the beach or for visiting Aunt Beryl at the other end of the country.
If you need an 80 percent top-up, not a problem. Plug into a rapid charger at a service station, go and grab a coffee, and after 47 minutes or so you’ll be on your way.
Our Kona comes with satellite navigation, Bluetooth with voice recognition, DAB radio, leather upholstery, air conditioning, tyre pressure monitor, cruise control, powered windows and mirrors, front and rear parking sensors, auto wipers, LED headlights, and a stack of safety kit.
The Hyundai Kona EV is great fun. It’s a well-equipped, comfortable family SUV that’s good to drive and extremely economical with a terrific range.
