    Hyundai Kona review.

    By Jonathan Crouch

    Ten second review.

    Hyundai's first generation Kona Electric played a significant role in the expansion of the EV market following its introduction in 2018, hence the importance of this updated version of the MK1 model in 2021. Cabin quality and connectivity took a big step forward. And with the top version, driving range was still class leading. Plenty to like as a used buy then.

    Design and Build.

    This improved MK1 Kona Electric emerged from this mid-term update looking a little smarter and more gym-toned than before, though, as so often with mid-term updates, you might initially be scratching your head a little to establish exactly why. Possibly it's because in this form it was a little more obviously an EV - the kind of thing the market these days seems to clearly want. Come in search of the changes made here over the 2018 original version of this model and most are to be found up-front. With this revised design, there's no pretence at a grille (previously there was a perforated front panel). Hyundai now wanted you to know without any question that this was an EV, hence the rather curious decision to try and make a frontward feature out of the charging port flap. More successful were the changes made to the upper LED daytime running lights and the sleeker headlamp pods, the beams embellished with multifaceted reflector technology. From the side, the look remained much as it was before, though if you were to get your tape measure out, you'd find this updated design to be 25mm longer than its predecessor: It's actually not that much different behind the wheel from the original model - but it feels as if it is because the screen technology took such a step with the adoption of big 10.25-inch displays across the range for the instrument cluster and the centre screen, which in this updated model came complete with a whole range of 'Bluelink' connectivity functions. The cabin differences over an ordinary combustion Kona are actually more pronounced than you might expect, the key change being the installation of a wider aircraft-style silver-trimmed centre console, which incorporates the 'shift-by-wire' push-button controls for the single-speed auto gearbox that all EV models have to have. As before, you're not sat particularly commandingly in what is supposed to be an SUV, but up-front you're favoured with a pair of unexpectedly cushy pews that should allow all shapes and sizes to get comfortable. And, unique to this Electric model is the extra storage space you get under the broad centre console. And in the rear? Well it's in this part of the car that you're likely to be most keenly reminded that you've bought an SUV based on a small car platform, rather than that of a family hatchback. As it turns out, it's not too bad in the back for the carriage of two folk, providing they're not especially lanky of leg. If they are, then compromises will be need to made by the front seat occupants in order to be able to accommodate them. Let's finish with a few words on boot space. The design team's efforts to build in the battery packs in a way that doesn't impinge on carriage capacity weren't entirely successful. That fell from the 374-litre total you get in a standard Kona to 332-litres here. Push forward the 60/40 split-folding rear seat and you'll reveal a relatively flat loading floor with as much as 1,114-litres of total fresh air if you load to the roof.

    Cost of Ownership.

    Very little goes wrong here, though it's worth noting that Hyundai recommends that “Consumers should only charge their vehicles up to 90% of its battery capacity.” In terms of faults, we came across one owner who complained of a rubbing noise; and another who cited a grating noise. Otherwise, there's a clean bill of health. Of course though, there are issues to look out for. If the car won't charge, it could be a problem with your home electrics (or those at the public charge point you're using). Check the charge light to make sure that electricity really is going through the charge port. And make sure there really is charge in the socket you're using to power from - plug something else into it to see - say, your 'phone. If that charges OK, it could be that your charging cable is demanding too much power, so try another power source. Another problem could be that the circuit may have tripped due to a circuit overload. Or perhaps there could be a problem with the charge cable: this needs to be cared for properly. Repeatedly driving over it (as previous owners may conceivably have done) will damage it eventually. Make sure you do a charge-up before signing for the car you're looking at. When you do this, make sure that when you plug in to start the charge cycle you hear the charge port and the cable locking and engaging as they should; that's all part of the charger basically confirming with the car's onboard computer that everything's good to go before releasing power. But if the charging cable fails to lock as it should, then that won't happen. If there is a failure to lock, the issue could be actuator failure, caused by a blown fuse. Otherwise, the issues here to look for are pretty much as they are in other early EV models. We've come up across problems with owners saying that when they update the navigation system, the GPS set-up then refuses to work, so then requiring a reset of the electronic control unit while the car's battery is disconnected. Otherwise, it's just the usual things to look for: parking knocks and scrapes and any damage to the interior caused by kids. And of course insist on fully stamped-up service history.


    (approx based on a 2021 Kona Electric - Ex Vat) Front brake pads sit in the £37 bracket. Front brake discs sit in the £70-£100 bracket. A pollen filter is around £10. A mirror glass is around £24. A wiper blade is in the £5-£12 bracket.
