2021 Hyundai Kona EV for Sale in Springfield, MA
The 2021 Hyundai Kona Electric Vehicle is the full package: spacious, good-looking, highly efficient, and technology laden. This subcompact electric crossover also has industry-leading warranty coverage and a class-leading EPA-estimated driving range of 258 miles. In addition to being exceedingly economical, the ’21 Kona EV displays the same style and level of practicality as the conventional gasoline-burning version. And, since it’s an electric vehicle, it offers a lot of torque, which makes it even more fun to drive.
Trims and Powertrain
The ’21 Kona EV, which comes in three trim levels (SEL, Limited, and Ultimate), has a 64-kWh lithium-ion polymer battery and a 150-kW permanent-magnet synchronous electric motor that makes 201 horsepower. It works with a single-speed transmission and a front-wheel drivetrain. The Kona EV can travel up to 258 miles on a single electric charge. With a 220/240V outlet, a full charge is achieved in 9 hours and 35 minutes. At charging stations, DC fast chargers can provide 80 percent of the charge in just 54 minutes.
Regenerative braking can add to the vehicle’s range by recycling energy created during the stopping process and storing it in the battery. The operator can select from three drive modes, which each offer a different level of energy capture. Better still, the BlueLink app on your smartphone includes charge indicators and charge scheduling so you can juice up your vehicle during low-demand hours when electric rates aren’t as high.
Standard and Optional Features
The ’21 Kona EV isn’t just efficient, it’s also packed with an assortment of sought-after amenities. The SEL has automatic headlights, LED taillights, heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, keyless entry, push-button start, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a rearview camera with parking guidance, dual USB ports, automatic climate control, BlueLink connected car services, a 7-inch color LCD gauge cluster with an EV technology display, a 60/40 split fold-flat rear seatback, and a dual-level cargo floor. Upgrades to the Limited include LED headlights, automatic high beams, a sunroof, a power-adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support, leather seats, a wireless smartphone charger, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a HomeLink universal transceiver. The high-end Ultimate adds rain-sensing wipers, ventilated front seats, and a head-up display.
Technology and Safety
Safety is paramount in the 2021 Hyundai Kona EV, as all trims get the SmartSense suite of active driver aids (forward collision-avoidance assist, lane keeping assist, driver attention warning, blind-spot collision warning, and rear cross-traffic collision warning). The Ultimate adds pedestrian detection to the forward collision-avoidance system along with rear parking sensors.
The SEL and Limited get an infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen, a six-speaker sound system, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming capability, smartphone integration (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto), SiriusXM satellite radio, and high-definition radio. As the most loaded Kona EV trim, the Ultimate gets an infotainment system with a 10.25-inch touchscreen, built-in navigation, and a high-end eight-speaker Infinity sound system with Clari-Fi Music Restoration technology.
