In the ever-evolving landscape of electric vehicles (EVs), the competition for market dominance continues to heat up. One automaker that has consistently proven its commitment to the electric future is Hyundai, and they are back in the spotlight with the debut of the 2024 Hyundai Kona Electric. This latest iteration of the Kona Electric brings a refreshing design overhaul and an impressive estimated range of 260 miles, cementing Hyundai's position as a frontrunner in the EV race.

Design Evolution

Design Evolution

One of the most striking aspects of the 2024 Hyundai Kona Electric is its updated design language. The previous model already had a distinctive and stylish appearance, but the 2024 version takes it to a whole new level. Hyundai's designers have given the Kona Electric a more mature and sophisticated look while retaining the signature crossover SUV silhouette.

The front fascia of the 2024 Kona Electric boasts a sleeker grille design, integrated LED headlights, and a reimagined lower bumper, resulting in a cleaner and more aerodynamic profile. The rear end also gets a refresh, with new LED taillights and a revised bumper. The overall effect is a vehicle that feels more upscale and in tune with contemporary design trends.

Inside the cabin, the improvements are equally notable. The 2024 Kona Electric features high-quality materials and a more driver-focused layout. The dashboard has been redesigned with a larger infotainment screen, improved ergonomics, and a greater emphasis on user-friendly controls. The overall interior ambiance exudes a sense of refinement and comfort, making it an inviting space for both driver and passengers.

Unchanged but Impressive Powertrain

Unchanged but Impressive Powertrain

While the 2024 Hyundai Kona Electric brings a slew of updates in terms of design and interior features, the powertrain remains largely unchanged from the previous model. Under the hood, you'll find the same electric motor producing 201 horsepower and 291 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the front wheels via a single-speed transmission.

The real standout, however, is the battery capacity and range. The 2024 Kona Electric continues to use a 64 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Thanks to incremental improvements in energy efficiency and management, it now achieves an estimated range of 260 miles on a single charge. This enhanced range is a significant step forward and addresses one of the key concerns for potential EV buyers – the fear of running out of battery power during longer journeys.

In terms of charging, the Kona Electric supports Level 1 and Level 2 home charging, as well as Level 3 fast charging at compatible public charging stations. With Level 3 fast charging, the Kona Electric can replenish its battery from 10% to 80% in approximately 40 minutes, making it convenient for both daily commutes and longer road trips.

Advanced Tech and Safety Features

Advanced Tech and Safety Features

Hyundai has equipped the 2024 Kona Electric with an array of advanced tech and safety features. The infotainment system now includes a larger touchscreen display with smartphone integration through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Additionally, Hyundai's Blue Link connected services provide remote start, climate control, and vehicle monitoring capabilities through a smartphone app.

Safety is a paramount concern, and the 2024 Kona Electric doesn't disappoint. It comes standard with Hyundai's SmartSense suite of driver-assistance features, including adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, and blind-spot monitoring. These technologies enhance the overall driving experience while also helping to keep occupants safe on the road.

The 2024 Hyundai Kona Electric represents a significant step forward in the world of electric vehicles. With its refreshed design, comfortable interior, and an impressive estimated range of 260 miles, it's poised to attract both existing EV enthusiasts and those considering making the switch from traditional combustion engines.

While the powertrain remains largely unchanged, the increased range addresses a crucial concern for many potential EV buyers, making the Kona Electric a more practical choice for everyday use and longer journeys. Hyundai's commitment to innovation and sustainability shines through in this latest offering, solidifying their position as a key player in the electric vehicle market.

As we move further into the era of electrification, the 2024 Hyundai Kona Electric serves as a testament to the ongoing evolution and refinement of electric vehicles, providing consumers with a stylish, reliable, and eco-friendly transportation option that's ready to meet the demands of the modern world.

Latest project from CALLUM to make global public debut at Concours on Savile Row

CALLUM SKYE, the first own brand vehicle fully developed in-house by the British design and engineering business CALLUM, will be seen in public for the first time at Concours on Savile Row, London on 22-23 May 2024.

The pioneering, high-performance, all-wheel-drive, multi-terrain electric vehicle was announced in November 2023 to global critical acclaim. The first running prototype will be displayed outside Edward Sexton’s store throughout the free-to-attend event that celebrates the long history that car manufacturers and tailors share.

Engineered to offer an exhilarating and rewarding driving experience both on- and off-road, SKYE has been crafted to ensure the utmost capability, refinement and beauty for discerning adventurers. As an all-electric vehicle, it’s powered by a 42kWh battery with anticipated range of 170 miles, with the option to specify an ultra-fast charging battery for full charge in under ten minutes. Measuring 4,047mm in length and 1,900mm in width, and weighing just 1,150kg, it boasts sportscar performance with 0-60mph achieved in under four seconds.

“The CALLUM SKYE is bold, beautifully engineered and crafted with refinement and craftsmanship. The same can be said for the world-leading bespoke tailoring that exists on Savile Row. We can’t wait to see and hear the reactions of event visitors who will be the first to see SKYE in person,” says David Fairbairn, managing director, CALLUM. “Compact, capable and extremely beautiful, we’re confident that this representation of the SKYE exterior will turn heads, as we invite those interested in commissioning a CALLUM SKYE to reserve their build slot.”
