Mentioning Push EVs and Auto Bild, Inside EVs has noted that Hyundai will be launching an all-electric Kona crossover by fall 2018.

The report likewise suggests that the Kona EV will have a series of around 217 miles and a battery packing around 50-kWh. As for prices, the Kona EV might start at around $39,000, putting it right on the exact same ballpark as the Chevrolet Bolt EV, that is EPA-rated at 238 miles on every charge.

This will not be the first electrified crossover from a Korean automaker due to the fact that Hyundai’s sister company already has the Niro in its lineup and will be including a plug-in hybrid version for the 2018 model year. Inside EVs likewise explains that Hyundai and Kia’s hybrid and EV offensive will not stop there due to the fact that a EV variation of the Niro and the recently teased Stonic might also remain in the works.

However, in the U.S. market, it’s unidentified regarding whether Hyundai and Kia’s upcoming all-electric vehicles will work as compliance vehicles or not.
