Best Decision We Could Have Made
We considered Tesla before test driving the Kona EV and were shocked at how quickly our opinions changed the moment we sat in the car for the first time. Not only does it look great, it has surprisingly good acceleration, rides better than any other small car I've driven, has great tech features and really is just so fun to drive. Compared to the overpriced Tesla models, buying the Kona EV is truly the best decision we could have made for the price.

Pros
Better range than what is shown online.
Great tech features that work very well.
Feels bigger inside than it is. Do not feel cramped.
Excellent acceleration and very agile on the freeway make it super fun to drive.

Cons
Back seat leg room is small so adults would have hard time sitting in back seat for long period of time.
Rear cargo area is a tad small but sufficient.

Great car, but far from perfect.
Some inherent bugs. Brakes sometimes freeze, especially when in cruise control. Rear view camera should have birds eye view and the colors on the screen are confusing and inaccurate. Great mileage - better than advertised. Should have USB ports in rear seat.

First All Electric Vehicl
The Hyundai Kona exceeds my expectation of mileage range. Drive, handling, and comfort are great. Heritage Hyundai was a big help in finding vehicle and closing the sale. Looking forward to tax credit for buying an electric vehicle.

Pros
High range for EV.
Rapid acceleration.

Cons
Two-tone paint job.
Will not fit a half-sheet of plywood in the back.

We love it!
We transitioned to EV without issues with the Kona Ultimate. The interior color palette and materials and desirable. The technology included for the price is unrivaled. A great first step into the EV world with a manufacturer brand that backs up their product with industry leading warranty and dealership network support.


Love the car!

Pros
EV with good range need I say more

Cons
Would like backseat to be a little bigger.

Love this car
This car sold itself in the first 3 blocks of my test drive. They would have to have pried it out of my cold dead hands. I had intended to just familiarize myself with the Kona and then wait and buy one used next year, but I couldn't part with it.

Pros
Everything

Cons
Very few.
