Leasing the new Hyundai Kona Electric in the UK

Not unlike their sister company, Kia, the Hyundai group have revised their all-electric small SUV option for 2023.   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. Towards the end of 2023, UK leasing customers will be enjoying the new platform.

After the revision, the Kona will still be compared to the new Kia Niro EV, the Peugeot e-2008, the Vauxhall Mokka-e and DS3 Crossback e-Tense. But with new entrants like the Smart #1 and BYD Atto 3, it really isn’t easy to choose the perfect crossover or SUV in BEV format. But 2022 proved to be a tougher year for this segment, with only the Kia Niro EV appearing in SMMT’s top-10 list.

So, what specifications will the new Kona Electric have? For those unfamiliar with the old model, the brand utilised the below: 

  •  SE Connect (on the 39 kWh battery only) – 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) – 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) – the top-spec adds electric driver’s seat, ventilated seats, heated rear seats, leather trim, high beam assist and sunroof. 

But for 2023, the model line-up will consist of: 

  •  Advance – this will include 17” alloys, driver lumbar support, air conditioning, automatic headlights, auto dimming rear view mirror, LED daytime running lights, LED interior lights, tinted glass, cruise control (smart), electric door mirrors, front and rear parking sensors, rear camera, stop/start button, 12.3” LCD display, navigation, smartphone integration, hill start assist, ISLA, lane keep and follow assist;     
  • N Line – this adds the exterior design pack (front and rear bumpers, 18” alloys, badges), body coloured wheel arches, aluminium pedals, heated fronts seats, heated rear seats, privacy glass, solar glass, heated steering wheel, wireless phone charging, power operated tailgate. You can add (for a cost) the 2-tone roof;   
  •  N Line S – this adds BOSE premium sound, BLIND spot collision avoidance, 3-zone climate control, rear cross traffic alert, safe exit warning, surround view monitor. In terms of additional options, consider electric sunroof / digital key pack; and
  • Ultimate – the top of the line model adds body coloured models, silver skid plates, black wheel arches, black leather trim, electric sunroof.

All of the new Kona options will come with a 5-year unlimited mileage warranty, roadside assistance and Bluelink connected car services for 3 years.

And what battery options will the Kona have

On the pre-current mode, UK customers could choose from two battery options 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.

But for 2023, the model line-up on battery will be:

  • 48 kWh – this 48.4 kWh usable battery generates power of 115 kW (134 hp) for 96 mph top speeds and 10 second 0 – 62 times. This is a FWD model. Expect real world ranges of around 155 miles in winter and 215 miles in spring / summer. Charging times are 8 hours on the 7.2 kW AC max for 0 – 100% and 43 minutes for 10 – 80% on the 75 kW DC rapid charge max. This small family SUV EV has V2L capacity (3.6 kW max) and a 466L cargo volume. Expect a vehicle fuel equivalent of 155 mpg; and
  • 65 kWh – the 65.4 kWh lithium-ion battery will offer 0 – 62 times of 8.0 seconds, 104 mph top speeds and 160 kW (or 215 hp). Expect a combined winter range of 205 miles with warmer weather allowing for 285 miles. On charging, the 11 kW AC max will allow 8 hour 0 – 100% charging times with the impressive 100 kW DC maximum allowing 41 minute 10 – 80% times. This EV has V2L capacity (3.6 kW max) and a 466L cargo volume. Expect a vehicle fuel equivalent of 152 mpg.

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 until tax year 2024/4 and so a nominal monthly car tax exposure.

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 48 kWh Kona will cost just £16 to fully charge (based on a £0.34 kWh unit cost) resulting in 8.9 pence per miles 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.

Want your next electric car to be the Kona?

Moving forward with the e-car lease team is a straightforward journey. Use our Kona deals section to select your ideal battery and specification.
