Hyundai Kona Car leasing
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:
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:
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
