Why the Hyundai Kona Electric is our Top Plug-In Car of 2018

Written by Media Manager.

05/11/2018 - This article has been taken from a Stuff.co.nz article. We have used our BMG photos. 


2018 hyundai kona

Despite a lot of talk about plug-in vehicles this year, it's still very early days for electric vehicles in New Zealand. The infrastructure is improving, but the cars are few in number and the capital cost is very high.

Logic might dictate this award go to a plug-in hybrid vehicle then, which gives a taste of pure-EV running but keeps a combustion engine in the loop as we adjust to this brave new world.

That might have happened, had the Hyundai Kona Electric not come along and completely recalibrated our expectations of what a pure-EV (or Battery Electric Vehicle, BEV if you like) could offer.
