Ownership cost

What used Hyundai Kona Electric hatchback will I get for my budget?

Pricing for an early 39kWh example starts at around £25,000, but you'd be better off increasing your budget to £27,000 or more to get the larger capacity 64kWh car instead. While that does sound expensive, keep in mind that the Kona is actually one of the least expensive ways to get an electric car with a genuine 250 or more mile range.

How much does it cost to run a Hyundai Kona Electric hatchback?

Range and charging times

The 64kWh Kona holds the record for being able to travel the farthest in our Real-Range test at 259 miles. The 39kWh pack car isn't bad either at 158 miles.

Both versions can accept a 50kW rapid charge, and Hyundai quotes that it'll take 57 minutes to charge from 0-80% in the 39kWh Kona, and 75mins to do the same with the 64kWh car.

A wallbox installed at home can fully replenish a 39kWh Kona in six hours and 10 minutes, while a 64kWh car takes nine hours and 35 minutes. Only go for the three-pin socket option if you have to because it takes over 31 hours to fill the bigger battery pack!

Car tax (VED)

Electric car owners enjoy not having to pay any annual car tax (VED), and also escape the surcharge for vehicles that cost over £40,000 when new. To find out more about the current road tax costs, click here.

Servicing

No Kona Electric is quite old enough yet to take advantage of fixed price servicing yet. However, there are service plans available for you to be able to spread the cost, and EV servicing should be less expensive than that of regular petrol and diesel cars because there's no engine oil to change.
