The new Hyundai Kona has been enhanced with a variety of updates driven by customer demand in Europe. A design update - including, for the first time, an optional sporty N Line trim - gives it a dynamic new look. An enhanced powertrain line-up provides both sporty and eco-friendly options. Upgraded connectivity and convenience features make for an even more comfortable experience on the road. All this and more make it an even better product for Hyundai Motor's European customers.
Hyundai Kona has been a success story for Hyundai in Europe since its introduction in 2017 and has a rapidly-growing market share. Within only three years, the sub-compact SUV became one of Hyundai's most popular models in Europe. Since its launch, more than 228,000 units have been sold in the region. Winner of the 2018 iF Design Award, the 2018 Red Dot Award, the 2018 IDEA design award, and more, its design has been consistently praised by customers and reviewers alike.
Kona plays a key role in Hyundai's electrification strategy, combining electrified powertrains with a stylish sub-compact SUV body type. It was the first Hyundai SUV available with a range of electrified powertrains, including a hybrid and a fully-electric version. In March Hyundai has started production of the Kona Electric at its Czech production plant, Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Czech (HMMC). Now, Hyundai is expanding the electrification of the Kona range with the introduction of 48-volt mild hybrid technology to diesel and petrol engines.
