When it comes to vehicles with alternative drives, Hyundai has a lot to offer: In addition to the Nexo fuel cell vehicle, the Koreans have the Ioniq in their range, which is available as a hybrid, plug-in hybrid or fully electric. For the 2021 model year, it was slightly redesigned at the front and rear, and the interior was slightly refreshed. Technically, nothing has changed, so that the ADAC test from 2018 is basically still valid. The Kona Electric is available with two battery sizes (39 and 64 kWh) and in two power levels (100 and 150 kW).
The powerful torque of 395 Nm promises safe overtaking manoeuvres even from low speeds. The more powerful version accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 7.9 seconds, and the top speed is 167 km/h. The battery capacity enables a range of up to 484 kilometres according to the WLTP cycle. At least on paper. But with an electric car, the personal driving style is very important.
