The 2019 Hyundai Kona EV boasts a number of stunning innovations, including an efficient powertrain. The experts at Edmunds.com seem to agree. After all, they did name the electric crossover the best in the business. The new Hyundai Kona was named the Edmunds Editors’ choice for Best EV.
The Best EV
Earning the Best EV title isn’t something the team behind the Hyundai Kona EV takes lightly. The editors test more than 300 vehicles each year in more than 30 categories, including utility, value, and efficiency. Given the model’s impressive value and efficiency in the crossover segment, it was an obvious choice for the title.
“We give the Kona Electric high marks for its excellent combination of price and range, but also really love its comfort, responsiveness, and sophisticated ride quality,” said Alistair Weaver, Edmunds Editor-in-Chief. “It’s the most accomplished, accessible EV we drove this year — even without the tax credits.”
Great Choice for Drivers with Little Down Time
Standard fast-charging capabilities make the 2019 Hyundai Kona EV a great choice for drivers with little down time. An efficient 201-horsepower electric powertrain has plenty of spirit with 291 lb-ft of torque. The family-driven crossover even includes a number of standard safety technologies, like Lane-Keeping Assist and Blind-Spot Collision Warning.
Winning the Best EV title builds on the success of the Hyundai Kona EV. The electric crossover also won 2019 North American Utility Vehicle of the Year at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
