2019 Hyundai Kona EV spied
The upcoming Hyundai Kona EV, due to be revealed sometime next year, has been spied this week during testing in Europe.
The EV retains the overall look and shape of the combustion-powered Kona that recently hit the market, though there appears to be a different front grille and new alloy wheels to distinguish it as a 'green' model.
The vehicle was spotted while recharging, revealing the frontal placement of the charge port. With that in mind, expect a different grille to feature on the EV, likely a closed unit similar to that on the electric version of the Hyundai Ioniq - as there is no engine that needs air for cooling.
Other than new alloy wheel designs, however, there are no distinct design changes visible through the heavy camouflage of this prototype
In terms of powertrain and driving range, Hyundai revealed at the international launch of the regular Kona that it was targeting an all-electric range comparable to a conventional petrol vehicle - a figure of 'over 390km' was mentioned.
