Hyundai’s EV and hybrid range: what’s on offer?

When it comes to electrified models, Hyundai is up there at the front of the pack.

The South Korean firm already boasts a fairly comprehensive range of electric and hybrid cars, each with impressive range, bags of technology and plenty to tempt buyers in. We take a look at what it offers…

Kona Electric

Hyundai’s current flagship EV is its in-demand Kona Electric. The battery-powered crossover has barely been on sale a year, but orders are flying in so hot you’ll be waiting into 2020 to get your hands on this sought-after car.

It’s easy to see why so many buyers are interested. In 64kWh form, it boasts a claimed 279-mile range that ensures range anxiety is a thing of the past, while luxury features such as wireless phone charging, a Krell premium audio system and heated/ventilated seats add to its appeal.

Kona Hybrid

Set to arrive later in 2019 is the Kona Hybrid — the stepping stone for those not quite ready to switch to a full EV but want to dip their toes in the electrified waters (don’t try this metaphor at home). Powered by a 1.6-litre petrol engine linked to an electric motor, Hyundai says the crossover can return an impressive 66mpg on the combined cycle while emitting just 99g/km in CO2.

Standard fit items such as a 10.25-inch infotainment system, 18-inch alloys, LED headlights and a heated steering wheel ensure its as big on kit as it is efficiency too.

IONIQ Hybrid, Plug In and Electric

Last month, Hyundai revealed a raft of upgrades to its Hyundai IONIQ range, enhancing the models appeal. Remaining the only car on sale available with a hybrid, plug-in or electric powertrain, the IONIQ now features a revised look to keep it up to date, increased levels of safety tech and more equipment.

Most interestingly, the Electric benefits from a larger battery pack — increased from 28kWh to 38.3kWh. This should up range to 182 miles. A new 7.2kWh on-board charger also allows for Type 2 AC charging, resulting in a 0-80 per cent charge time of 54 minutes at a 100kW outlet. 

NEXO

Though hydrogen cars are a niche option in the UK, those who have the ability to run such a vehicle should turn to the NEXO for their emissions-free driving experience. The electric fuel-cell machine has a range of almost 500 miles between fill-ups, and is topped up like a regular petrol or diesel car — but at a hydrogen pump instead.
