Great car but could be better in the snow

The thing goes like h*ll! Two bad things though, it's awful in the snow bc you can't rock it out if you get stuck. It keeps jumping back to neutral. The other thing is the location of the heated seat buttons, we keep accidentally pressing them. That's awful in the summer, and if you have a dog in the car with you he will keep pushing the buttons. Otherwise we'd buy it again. I need to see if there's a fuse for those heated seats that I can take out after our lease is up and we own it.


All in on All Electric

Just bought Kona EV used a few weeks ago, wanted to dip toes into an all electric vehicle. So far, so good. Fun to drive, has plenty of acceleration and loaded with tech (Ultimate trim). Using regenerative braking and one pedal driving is a learning curve, but worth figuring out. Great range, easy to charge...perfect for local and around town driving. Hyundai CPO warranty gives some peace of mind, anticipating years of trouble (maintenence) free driving.


Smartest little car ever

I bought 2021 Kona Ultimate w/ 16k miles at $40,000 cash a month ago. Awesome little car! I’m used to much larger luxury cars but with 15mpg and $6.50 gas it’s time to put them away for a while. This feels a bit like a rental car if you get that, but is actually loaded with options. It is very clever, very fast, a blast to drive and full of surprises. ‘Zippy’ is a great adjective. Drive it fast and fun all day, then plug it in overnight and you’re right back to 100% in the morning. Terrific range, decent stereo, not exactly luxury but pretty close. Smartest little car ever but not at all cheap or easy to find if you want the ‘ultimate’ trim instead of SEL. Only two similar in all of California. Downside was plenty of dealer games in San Leandro; other hassle is the STUPID arrangement of drive selector buttons on console. Really annoying, but o well, nothings perfect


Great car

This car met all my need. Help the environment made me feel better and made me great . Great range of the car helped me with decisions


Never go back to gas

This car does any thing I ask of it compared to my ICE cars, no range anxiety. Best EV out there in its class by far. Buy the Kona EV for your 1st EV, at this stage no other comparison for the money. Only complaint, Dealers stink, they have no interest in selling or leasing them. Not enough profits in service plus lack of trained sales people. I had to insist on them to charge mine just to test drive it let alone lease it!


Kona Electric

I am thrilled that the Kona is my first experience with an electric car. I couldn't be happier with it. I highly suggest going electric.


Very comfortable and quiet car. Rear legroom tight

Very efficient regenerative braking. Hardly have to use my brakes. Electric cost per mile much less than gas. Great acceleration and handling. Very comfortable front seats


Best car for my money

My brand new 2020 Hyundai Kona Electric is worth every single penny of the $50,000 as it’s a fun, safe, comfortable and efficient little SUV. I think this SUV’s tech level is perfect for the asking price.


The all electric Kona delivers the promised range

Stylish, comfortable and delivers on all electric range in excess of 250 miles per full charge. Many safety features are apparent along with exceptional dashboard displays for driver comfort and ease of use. A very functional cockpit.


fast and simple

i love it - but its so new that even hyundai doest know the maintainence schedule or how long the battery will last - but they give great warranties
