Hyundai Kona EV

Going electric may double the Kona’s price compared to the normal petrol versions, but as an EV, the small SUV impresses with its user-friendly nature, excellent range and brisk point-to-point acceleration that makes it fun to drive.

2021 brought a second, cheaper powertrain option known as Standard Range (SR). It gains a less-powerful front-mounted electric motor (at 100kW) and a smaller battery (at 39.2kWh).
