Check Out the Hyundai Kona EV

Every year Hyundai seems to up its game, and 2019 will be no different. At Rexdale Hyundai, we are extremely excited to give our customers a first look at the innovative 2019 Hyundai Kona Electric SUV. The all-new Kona electric will be Canada's first 400 km+ range subcompact SUV, so as you can imagine the sales team at Rexdale Hyundai is beyond excited to see it hit the showroom floor. At this point, Hyundai is aiming for a late-2018 release, but they are taking pre-orders that include a $1,000 deposit. Because demand will be great for this cutting-edge EV, we thought it would a great time to share with you all we know so far about the 2019 Hyundai Kona Electric SUV.


As we've already mentioned, the real key to Hyundai Kona Electric is its impressive range. While final testing is still pending, they are hoping this SUV will travel up to 400km on a single charge. This impressive distance is possible thanks to a powerful 64kWh battery that puts out 201 horsepower and 291 lb.-ft. of torque. Some of the other performance features include a button-type shift-by-wire, independent Front suspension, multilink rear suspension, regenerative brake system, Hillstart assist, and an electronic parking brake with Automatic Vehicle Hold. There is an available EV fast charger as well as a battery temperature management system to keep your battery in top shape at all times.

  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection
  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Lane Keeping Assist System
  • Driver Attention Warning
  • Blind Spot Collision Warning with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning
