Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Hyundai Kona Electric hatchback?

Most Kona Electrics listed for sale will still be within the Hyundai franchised dealer network and will have been reconditioned to look like new before resale.

One thing to think about is when it comes time to replace worn-out tyres is perhaps changing the standard-fit rubber for an alternative recommendation. These tyres came in for some criticism in the test we conducted between the Kona and its closely related sibling, the Kia e-Niro. You may sacrifice a little bit of overall range by having grippier tyres, but it might go some way to reducing the handling differences between the Kona and the more surefooted feeling e-Niro.
