Front, back and sides, the KONA Electric is clearly different to the rest of the KONA range. The closed grille is home to the all-important charge point, whilst there’s a new bumper incorporating active air flaps. The stylish practicalities at the front are enhanced even further by an exclusive silver garnish to the daytime running lights. At the rear, the lighting has also received attention, with new units for both the indicator and rear fog lights, whilst the rear bumper has a new look with the added benefit of improving the aerodynamics. The KONA Electric stands on unique 17” alloys, sitting under wheel-arch side claddings. A lower side skirt completes the picture.
The KONA Electric comes in six exciting colours, Galactic Grey (metallic) being standard. Other options available are Chalk White (pearl), Ceramic Blue (pearl), Pulse Red (pearl), Tangerine Comet (metallic) and Acid Yellow (metallic). On the Premium and Premium SE models, you can also choose a two-tone roof.
Refined, sophisticated and technologically advanced, the Kona Electric comes with an excellent specification as standard, including first-class features such as a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and front and rear electric windows. Choose the Premium or Premium SE and you’ll benefit from additional features such as privacy glass to the rear side windows and tailgate, solar glass with windscreen shade band, and the Krell premium audio system with eight speakers and a subwoofer.
