Electric Hyundai Kona To Debut At Geneva

Hyundai will unveil a full-electric version of its new Kona small SUV at the Geneva show in March.

The electric Kona will have a different drivetrain than the electric version of the Ioniq currently on sale, and a more powerful battery, said Hyundai Europe's chief operating officer, Thomas Schmid, at the auto show in Frankfurt.

Hyundai’s future plan involves launching 15 electrified models, including hybrid, PHEV, EV and fuel-cell models by 2020, with 10 of them destined to be offered in Europe.

This includes not only a next-gen fuel cell SUV that will offer more than 500 miles of driving range (800km) but also Hyundai’s first dedicated EV platform as well.

Kia, Hyundai's sister brand, unveiled the Stonic subcompact SUV in Frankfurt but the brand has no plans for full-electric version or hybrid versions of the Stonic, the brand's chief operating officer in Europe, Michael Cole, said. Kia currently sells an electric version of its Soul subcompact crossover and a Niro hybrid subcompact crossover.
