The updated Hyundai Kona Electric has been revealed ahead of a local arrival in the first half of 2021.
Externally, the updated Kona Electric gets a new-look closed grille, revised daytime running lights and headlights which wrap into the body-colour wheel arch cladding, and a tweaked front bumper with satin-accented bars in the air intake.
Changes at the back are limited to new tail-lights. As a result of the design refresh, the overall length has also increased by 40mm.
On the inside, new equipment includes a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, ambient footwell lighting, heated rear seats and an additional USB port in the second row.
Safety also gets a boost with blind-spot assist, rear cross-traffic assist, safe exit warning, rear-seat occupant alert, leading vehicle departure alert and lane-following assist all now included as standard.
In Australia, the Kona Electric will continue with the 64kWh lithium-ion battery and electric motor to produce 150kW of power and 395Nm of torque. On the WLTP cycle, the claimed range is 484km.
The battery can be replenished from 10 to 80 per cent using a 50kW DC fast charger in 64 minutes, while the same result can be achieved in 47 minutes with a 100kW DC charger.
Hyundai Australia says the Kona Electric is due locally sometime in the first half of 2021, full specifications and pricing will be confirmed closer to the launch date.
