Hyundai Kona and Kona N Line revealed, Australian plans confirmed

Hyundai Kona and Kona N Line revealed, Australian plans confirmed”

Hyundai Motor India MD & CEO Seon Seob Kim said, "As a caring and responsible brand, it is our privilege to align with the government's goal for clean energy and collaborate with all stakeholders to create a sustainable ecosystem for electric mobility". In its pilot project, EESL had ordered 10 Kona Electric SUVs a year ago and has now ordered another 100 units in line with the government's mission of creating a sustainable EV ecosystem in India.

Those chasing more of a sporting flavour to their Kona have been catered for too with HMC also confirming the introduction of a new N-Line variant, paving the way towards a possible Kona N performance flagship as well as upping the current model's sporting credentials. Upfront, the two-tier headlight design continues but features a new bumper, grille, headlights, and DRLs. At the top, the stretched bonnet ends sharply over the centre grille with a wide, distinctive shape that gives Kona a powerful look.

From there, a new plastic skidplate with shark tooth-shaped flicks underlines and surrounds the lower intake in contrast with both the black cladding and body colour.

The side body retains the muscular design from its predecessor, but the sporty wedge-shaped silhouette is further accentuated by the visual connection between the shoulder creases, and the sharper, cleaner, and more harmonious front end.

Spin around to the rear and the tweaked Kona sports new taillights with revised graphics. These reflect the unique identity of the front-end light design. Out back, the taillights show new graphics, a new bumper design mimics the front to stretch around the auto and into the rear wheel arches, and there's a stronger skid-plate-looking design as well.

The new Kona Electric, we can reveal, will come with the same 64kWh battery for up to 480km of zero emissions driving range.

The most significant changes are on the outside. Ambient lighting glows around the cupholder and speaker, and in the footwells, and customer demand has led to an electronic parking brake. These are in addition to five existing colours, including phantom black, chalk white, dark knight, pulse red and galactic grey. Buyers can also option a black roof, giving the vehicle a two-tone colour scheme. The two-tone roof also comes with matching mirror housings.

Instead of a front skid plate, the N Line version gains an N-style front lip with low-lying corner fins. This model gets body-colored cladding and new rocker panels along the sides, along with 18-inch wheels.

The confirmation that a refreshed Kona Electric will be announced for Australia came as the South Korean vehicle maker revealed a new hybrid version of its popular compact SUV would also be introduced locally in early 2021. The driver gets a new 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, along with a host of new safety technology. As standard, the new Kona is equipped with a display audio that is increased from seven to eight inches, and a DAB radio.

The N-Line package takes the aggressive design up a notch.
