Hyundai Kona Electric Starts Under $30,000 With Tax Credit

Hyundai has finally announced pricing for its Kona Electric SUV, which will start at $37,495 before any tax credits. Throw in federal tax credits, and buyers will be able to snag a Kona Electric for $29,995.

While the base version can be had right at $30,000, Hyundai is offering three trim levels total with the Kona Electric: SEL, Limited and Ultimate. Each trim level has the same 201 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque electric motor that’s juiced by a 64-kWh lithium-ion battery pack that supplies 258 miles of range. When the differences in trim levels fall is in equipment.

SEL models actually come nicely equipped. Goodies such as 17-inch alloy wheels, a leather steering wheel and support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are all standard fare. Limited models add leather seating, sunroof, LED headlights and power driver’s seat.

Top-of-the-line Ultimate models have a little bit of everything. Ultimate buyers get Hyundai’s Smart Cruise Control with stop and go, heated steering wheel, ventilated front seats, heads-up display, eight-inch touchscreen display, Infinity sound system and more.

Surprisingly, each trim level manages to start under $40,000 after the federal tax credit of $7,500. Limited models start at $42,195 ($34,695 with tax credit), while the Ultimate starts at $45,695 ($38,195 after tax credit).

The Hyundai Kona Electric will launch in California shortly and eventually be available in other select states. Interested buyers can order one starting now.
