Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2021 Hyundai Kona Electric is hard to find in some U.S. markets, but it's one of the best affordable long-range electric vehicles.

PROS
Fun to drive
Strong active safety tech
Range rating of 258 miles
Possibly around $30k after incentives
Excellent feature set

CONS
All-wheel drive isn’t an option
Busy styling
Difficult availability

Hyundai has made exactly zero changes to the Kona Electric for the 2021 model year.We'd recommend the mid-range Limited. It adds a host of desirable features, including a sunroof, leather upholstery, LED exterior lighting, automatic high-beam headlamps, a wireless smartphone-charging pad, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

PROS
Playful handling,
long driving range,
fantastic standard warranty.

CONS
Small back seat,
front-wheel drive only,
cold temperatures sap battery capacity.

PROS
Driving range of 258 miles

Comfortable and quiet cabin
Plenty of standard tech features

CONS
Tight rear legroom
Availability limited to a handful of states
