Here at Wessex Garages, we’re proud to offer the all-new Hyundai KONA Electric from our Cardiff and Newport locations. Electrify your driving experience and enjoy the thrill of this energetic SUV that’s ready to go whenever you are.
With a muscular design, strong shoulders and a dominant stance, the KONA means business out on the road.
As a 100% electric runner, the KONA is a modern vehicle complemented by beautiful features such as sleek LED lighting and a vibrant colour palette.
The model also comes in three distinct trim levels for optimum choice. These include the entry level SE, Premium and Premium SE.
First impressions count and while the exterior will pique your interest, the cabin won’t disappoint when you hop inside. The interior is remarkably spacious with plenty of legroom for both the driver and passengers. Plenty of light floods the cabin too creating a pleasant environment which makes it easy to sit back and relax. Instantly noticeable features include the sporty steering wheel with ergonomically positioned controls .
The Premium SE takes things up a notch by offering a heated steering wheel. This adds a different level of class and will keep your hands warm on chillier days.
As you’d expect from a capable electric vehicle, the interior is also brought to life with an abundance of high-performing tech designed to make every journey an experience.
Highlights range from the 8-inch touch screen infotainment system available with Premium models and above. This includes 3D navigation, media and smartphone connectivity in the form of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The KONA also comes with a 7-year subscription to LIVE services giving you access to real-time traffic updates, weather and POI information.
When it comes to safety, the KONA has a regenerative braking system which reacts to the traffic ahead. It can also detect whether the vehicle is travelling up or downhill and responds accordingly without you having to think ahead.
If you’re looking for an eco-friendly ride that doesn’t compromise on performance, the KONA is the car for you. Firstly, electric cars are almost silent, meaning you won’t experience the engine noise of traditional petrol and diesel vehicles.
Secondly, it comes with a 39-kWh engine with a top speed of 96 mph, or a 64-kWh engine which offers a top speed of 104 mph.
In addition, 385 Nm of torque guarantees impressive acceleration. Indeed, the KONA can reach 62mph from a standstill in just 7.6 seconds with the 64-kWh motor.
