Roomier and More Versatile Interior

For 2024, the Kona Electric has grown nearly six inches in overall length and the second row gains three inches in legroom. When combined with the completely flat rear floor, second-row passengers will find a roomy and comfortable space with more headroom and shoulder room than the outgoing model.

The cargo area has also grown 33 percent, expanding where it matters most, giving Kona Electric more cargo room than competitors. 17-inch aero alloy wheels are standard on Kona Electric, working together with underbody covers, to improve aerodynamic efficiency. These dimensional increases and efficient packaging solutions give the all-new Kona Electric class-leading passenger volume and total interior volume in the small SUV segment, all while improving upon its predecessor’s fun-to-drive dynamics. 

Modern Design
Kona Electric also features unique pixel design elements on its front and rear fascias to stand apart from Kona ICE models. Standard LED projector headlights, LED daytime running lamps and taillights, and an available Kona-Electric-exclusive “Seamless Horizon” LED DRL array enhances this model’s futuristic character.

Advanced Technology
Inside, the 2024 Kona Electric continues with class-leading technology and advanced SmartSense safety features that give customers the complete package. The all-new Kona Electric provides a connected, comfortable, and safe experience for everyone and their gear. The Kona Electric comes standard with an expansive 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster that is seamlessly integrated with Hyundai’s next-generation 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system. This standard dual-12.3-inch array delivers class-leading display size and boasts a new graphic user interface, faster processing speeds, and customizable layouts. The system also incorporates EV-specific menus that allow users to set charging preferences and find the nearest charging stations. Advanced connectivity features like standard Wireless Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™, Over -The -Air (OTA) software updates, and Wi-Fi Hotspotiii keep the Kona Electric on the cutting edge.

New premium features include a standard column-mounted shift-by-wire gear selector and regenerative braking control paddles that provide enhanced, intuitive control. The new i-PEDAL feature enables a one-pedal driving mode that allows drivers to accelerate, decelerate and stop using only the accelerator when desired. The Smart Regenerative System automatically adjusts regenerative braking levels based on real-time data from forward traffic flow, optimizing efficiency.

On the convenience front, available Digital Key 2 Touch and a hands-free Smart Liftgate make accessing the vehicle even easier. Kona Electric offers several class-aboveiv features including dual-zone automatic climate control, heated and ventilated front seats, and a heated steering wheel. Standard front and rear USB-C ports ensure that every passenger will be able to keep their devices charged.

SmartSense Advanced Driver Assistance
The 2024 Kona Electric comes standard with a comprehensive suite of Hyundai SmartSense advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Junction-Turning and Direct-Oncoming (FCA), Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW), Lane Keeping Assist (LKA), Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA), Driver Attention Warning (DAW), Safe Exit Warning (SEW), Rear Occupant Alert (ROA), and second-row seat belt reminders are all standard, as is a haptic-feedback steering wheel that alerts drivers of possible dangers. Standard Highway Driving Assist and Navigation-based Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go helps make both commutes and longer highway drives safer and more comfortable, while the available Parking Distance Warning, Parking Collision Avoidance Assist and Remote Smart Parking Assist aid ease of parking. The available Surround View Monitor and Blind View Monitor systems further augment the safety and convenience of Kona Electric.

Bluelink+
Like all 2024 model year Hyundai models, the 2024 Kona Electric features Bluelink+v, Hyundai’s industry-leading connected car services program. Bluelink+ gives original owners of all 2024 model-year Hyundai vehicles complimentary access to all services included in the previous Bluelink Connected Care, Remote and Guidance subscription packages (4G LTE network and technology dependent).

Hyundai Pay
Hyundai Kona Electric also features an expansion of the recently launched Hyundai Payvi platform to enable in-vehicle payments. In addition to parking, Kona Electric owners can pay for charging at select locations through Hyundai Pay.

Ten Vibrant and Dynamic Colors
The 2024 Kona Electric is available in a vibrant exterior color palette that captures its dynamic spirit. All trims are available in Mirage Green, Neoteric Yellow, Abyss Black, Ecotronic Gray, Cyber Gray, Atlas White, and Meta Blue Pearl, which is exclusive to Kona Electric.
