2022 Hyundai Kona Electric Overview

One of the best ways to ease buyers into electric vehicles is to make them look just like the everyday cars they know and love. Hyundai knows this and has electrified its popular Kona subcompact crossover. The Hyundai Kona Electric offers the utility of a hatchback, quick charging on a 240-volt outlet, and over 250 miles of range on a charge.

The Kona Electric gets a handful of updates for the 2022 model year, which include new bumpers, updated wheels, an overhauled interior, and a shuffle of trim levels. Hyundai offers the Kona Electric in two trims for 2022: SEL and Limited. Both models get a 201-horsepower electric motor and front-wheel drive (FWD), along with a 64-kilowatt-hour battery pack. All-wheel drive (AWD) isn’t offered. That powertrain should be good to deliver a total driving range of 258 miles on a single charge. The Kona Electric is equipped with regenerative braking that can be controlled with the steering-wheel-mounted paddles.

The Kona Electric comes well-equipped from the factory with a 10.3-inch configurable gauge cluster, an 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, six-speaker audio, and more. Upgrading to the Limited model adds a larger 10.3-inch touchscreen with navigation and an eight-speaker Infinity audio system.

Safety is a priority for Hyundai, and even though the 2022 Kona Electric hasn’t been crash-tested yet, it comes with a decent list of standard advanced driver aids. Every car gets blind-spot monitoring, automatic emergency braking, forward-collision warnings, lane-departure warning, and lane-keep assist. Adaptive cruise control with pedestrian detection can be added.

Hyundai says the new Kona Electric will start hitting dealers’ lots in spring 2022. Pricing details haven’t been released for the new model yet, but the numbers shouldn’t stray far from those of the 2021 model. It started at $38,565 after a $1,175 destination charge. Buyers may be able to take advantage of a federal tax credit of up to $7,500, and California buyers can get up to $3,500 in Clean Fuel Rewards and Clean Vehicle Rebates. Kona Electric drivers may also be able to use restricted high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes in certain areas.
