Hyundai Kona Car leasing

Leasing a Hyundai Kona in the UK

Hyundai are unequivocally one of the premier electric vehicle manufacturers in the world, with their new Ioniq 5 plus the Ioniq and Kona SUV offering some of the most formidable driving experiences without breaking the bank. Indeed, it was the “B Segment” SUV / Crossover Kona which really put Hyundai on the map for the UK’s personal and business leasing customers.

While initially launched in a combustion and hybrid format, the Korean brand soon launched a fully electric model in 2018, allowing customers to enjoy the practicality of the SUV but with the joy of zero-emissions.

Competing against the new Kia Niro EV, the Peugeot e-2008, the Vauxhall Mokka-e and DS3 Crossback e-Tense, the Hyundai still managed just over 7,000 registrations in the UK to make it the 6th best-selling EV in the UK for 2021. But which specification should I, or the fleet manager choose on the Kona EV? Select from the following options:

  • SE Connect (on the 39 kWh battery only) – from £29,800 the vehicle offers 17” alloys, body-coloured externals, leather steering wheel, lumbar support, air conditioning, automatic headlights, LED daytime running lights, halogen headlights, cruise control, rear parking sensors, rear parking sensors/camera, 10.25” widescreen navigation, Bluetooth, KRELL premium audio and Apple CarPlay;
  • Premium (available on the 39 kWh and 64 kWh battery) – from £31,150 this adds a wireless charging pad, heated front seats, automatic wipers, ambient interior lighting, privacy glass, LED rear lights, solar glass and folding electric door mirrors; and
  • Ultimate - (available on the 64 kWh battery only) – from £37,250 the top-spec adds electric driver’s seat, ventilated seats, heated rear seats, leather trim, high beam assist and sunroof.

Hyundai do not allow much in the way of extra specification or optional extras. Apart from the colour option, the only upgrade is the heat pump at £875. Why add a heat pump to an EV? Studies show that battery consumption is significantly reduced in cold conditions with this option and so this can help your range. Heat pumps are very much worth adding to EVs.

And what battery options are there on the Kona EV?  There are two key sizes to have on the vehicle including:

  •  39 kWh – this 39.2 kWh usable battery generates power of 100 kW (134 hp) for 96 mph top speeds and 9.9 second 0 – 62 times. Expect real world ranges of around 130 miles in winter and 180 miles in spring / summer (yes – temperature does impact battery ranges on a pure electric Kona). Charging times are 4 hours and 15 minutes on the 11 kW AC max for 0 – 100% and 50 minutes for 10 – 80% on the 50 kW DC rapid charge max; and
  • 64 kWh – this battery generates power of 150 kW (201 hp) for 104 mph top speeds and 7.9 second 0 – 62 times. Expect real world ranges of around 205 miles in winter and 285 miles in spring / summer. Charging times are 7 hours on the 11 kW AC max for 0 – 100% and 44 minutes for 10 – 80% on the 77 kW DC rapid charge max.

At e-car lease we find that the Kona is a vehicle equally popular with personal, business and salary sacrifice customers. For the BCH and Sal Sac customers there are good reasons for utilising the Kona as the next company car because it offers a 2% BiK and monthly car tax exposure of just over £21! (Based on a standard 39 kWh car for a 40% taxpayer in England).

There are true financial benefits for making your fleet transition to electric and not just for the employee / driver with their reduced tax exposure. For the business / fleet, not only are you contributing to decarbonisation, but you can enjoy an enhanced corporation tax position, savings on those vehicles operating in Congestion and Clean Air Zones and enhanced Whole of Life costs savings. For example, the 39 kWh Kona will cost just £11 to full charge (based on a £0.28 kWh unit cost) resulting in 7 pence per mile driving.

This will be somewhat cheaper than your petrol or diesel vehicles in most circumstances. Add to that the lower servicing, maintenance and tyres costs and you can see why so many business and salary sacrifice schemes are enjoying the pure electric Kona

How much is a Hyundai Kona to lease?
The Kona EV is a well-priced SUV option to lease. Between £30,000 - £38,000, expect monthly lease deals of £275 - £375. Hyundai have done a great job of making a practical family car which isn’t going to take up too much room on the drive, but which will offer a decent EV experience for most PCH and BCH customers.

Is a Hyundai Kona a good car to lease?
The Kona is one of the best small SUVs in electric format. With a longer legacy in the world of electrification, not to mention an 8-year battery warranty and 5-year vehicle warranty, you have a robust vehicle on offer. It also gets positive feedback from the automotive press with Electrifying at 8.5/10, CarWow at 4/5 and What Car? at 4/5. This is not a car which will ever leave you with the feeling of being disappointed.

Is a Hyundai Kona lease right for me or the business?
If you need a comfortable and functional small SUV in electric format, then it is likely the fully-electric Kona is a perfect solution. But before committing to the lease or purchase, make sure that you, or the fleet team, completely understand the significance of an EV-lifestyle. On the e-car website our “Living with your …” tools do provide key info relating to seasonal range, charging cable, charging infrastructure and the cost of running / fuelling the vehicle which are essential to your decision. For high-mileage leasing customers, always use our range analysis for assessing the suitability of the battery

Where do I find the best Hyundai Kona lease deals in the UK?
As an electric-only car leasing specialist, we hope that the best leasing deals can be found on our amazing website. But we also understand that you, or the business, may need to compare the cost of leasing v cost of buying a Kona EV. So head to a local Hyundai dealership to get a test-drive and obtain a PCP, HP or Lease Purchase quote to understand what’s the best offer for you. And if you need more price checking, feel free to use the leading price comparison websites like AutoLeaseCompare, CarWow, LeaseFetcher and LeaseLoco.

What is the cheapest Hyundai Kona Electric leasing option?
At the time of writing (May 2022) the cheapest model to select is the ELECTRIC HATCHBACK 100kW SE Connect 39kWh 5dr Auto at nearly £30,000. But with Covid and microchip shortages impacting availability, we are finding that it is sometimes better to pay more for a higher specification which is in stock as opposed to taking the risk of a factory order on the cheaper model

What is the range of an Electric Hyundai Kona
The range of the Kona EV will be key to your decision in particular as to which battery choice you should utilise. Taking the 39 kWh option, this will achieve 110 miles on the motorway and 150 miles in urban driving in colder weather (on a full charge) with warmer external temperature increasing this to 140 miles and 235 miles respectively. On the bigger 64 kWh battery the cold weather should allow for 175 miles on the motorway and 240 miles in cities on a full charge. For warmer climates this increases to 225 miles and 370 miles respectively

Can you tow with a Hyundai Kona?
Yes - you can purchase a detachable two bar and wiring kit (13-pole) for the Kona EV.

What is the towing capacity of the Hyundai Kona?
N/A – the maximum weight for towing a trailer or caravan with this EV is still awaited.

What is the MPG of the Hyundai Kona?
