- KONA Electric named ‘one to watch’ at the Fleet World Honours
- Electric version of the Hyundai KONA SUV poised to triumph in the fleet sector
- KONA Electric boasts all-electric range of up to 300 miles (470km)
The judges felt that the KONA Electric had the potential to really take electric mobility further into the mainstream, offering low running costs and zero exhaust emissions in a popular segment.
With hybrid, plug-in and fuel-cell products on offer, Hyundai is already delivering what other manufacturers are only promising. The KONA Electric is a game-changer; a fashionable small SUV with a 300-mile all-electric range - it's exactly the product needed to make electro-mobility mainstream. And this isn't a far-off concept, with deliveries due to start later this year.
It is truly fantastic to receive an award for a car that is yet to be launched! It is a strong endorsement of Hyundai's reputation for producing highly-capable and relevant vehicles for both its fleet and retail customers. We're confident that the KONA Electric's impressive range, distinctive styling, and exceptional refinement will make it very appealing when it is launched later this year.
