We have for you the next generation of Hyundai Kona crossover. It seems that the honour is entering the final phase of its development. Automotive paparazzi have caught prototype cars with solid layers of camouflage.
The shot shows low tail lights and split headlights like the current model. However, the prototypes look a little larger than the second generation of Kona. There is more space for passengers in the interior. Also, it reports suggesting that it will sit on the new front and all-wheel-drive platform.
It should be capable of gas and diesel powertrains. Rumours suggest that the next-generation Hyundai Kona will replace the I 30 hatchback in the Hyundai family. Crossovers have a better reputation than compact hatchbacks in Europe.
2023 Hyundai Kona Release Date, Price, and Specs
- Kona Electric and Kona N will likely be in late Summer/early Fall 2022.
- These models will be available at Hyundai dealerships in the United States.
- Also available in select international markets.
It’s worth considering whether the electric version of the Hyundai Kona will still belong to that family or it will receive the Ionic prefix. Some reports suggest that after unveiling the Ionic Six and Ionic Seven, Hyundai will also present entry-level Ionic models.
Next electric model could adopt the Ionic Two or three moniker. And it will be based on the EGMP platform it debuted on the Ionic Five, which will be offered in two configurations with 77 four kilowatt-hours battery pack. The base variant has a rear-mounted electric motor that produces 228 PS and 350 Newton meters of torque.
On a single charge, it is expected to deliver a range of 484 km.
