The Kona Electric reinforces the company’s leadership in the eco-car segment. It merges the strengths of SUV with the benefits of electric propulsion. Hyundai was the first automotive brand in Europe to make a fully-electric subcompact SUV available to everyone. By already offering the broadest range of powertrains, Hyundai is at the forefront of eco-mobility. The company marketed the first mass-produced fuel-cell vehicle, the ix35 Fuel Cell, followed by the second-generation fuel-cell vehicle, NEXO.
Additionally, the IONIQ was the first car available with three different electric powertrains in one body type. Winning several prestigious accolades from media and industry organisations, the IONIQ is one of the most awarded eco-cars in Europe.
The success story of Hyundai’s SUV range began 17 years ago with the launch of the Santa Fe. Since 2001, Hyundai has sold more than 1.6 million SUVs in Europe. They all carry the dynamic, progressive style of Hyundai and make it an established brand in this still-growing segment.
