What should I be paying?

Given the way EV prices have been shooting up recently, the entry-level Kona looks very decent value at £34,995 for 234 miles of range. Remember, we live in a world where the Honda e now starts at £37,395 and only manages around 100 real world miles on a single charge.

A £3,600 jump gets you into the same Advance trim level but with the bigger battery, 319 miles and more powerful motor. Said trim level includes 17-inch wheels, all the body-coloured exterior bits, cloth seats and the two 12.3-inch screens inside.

N Line is the sportier looking offering, with N-spec 19-inch wheels, a slightly more aggressive bodykit, black exterior mirrors, an optional black roof and the slowest possible electric bootlid. Inside there are aluminium pedals and black and red cloth seats. N Line can only be paired with the larger battery and starts at £40,395. Worth bearing in mind that the bigger wheels absolutely kill the range though: it drops to an estimated 282 miles even with that 65.4kWh battery.

Next up is N Line S which is essentially more of the same but with Alcantara and leather seats, three-zone climate control and the BOSE sound system. That will set you back £43,095, and it’s also the entry point to getting the full width daytime running light across the front. Advance and N Line get two separate DRLs in each corner which is a bit of a shame.

Top spec is Ultimate trim, which starts at £43,095 and brings 19-inch wheels, an ECO Suede and leather interior, a sunroof and all of the Kona’s many, many active safety systems. At this point, Hyundai will also let you swap to the 17-inch wheels for max range as a no-cost option. An optional Lux Pack (£1,500) also adds a couple of extra bits including a heated charging flap so that it doesn’t get frozen shut in winter.

If you’re buying on finance, PCP deals for the entry spec Advance should start at £352 a month on a 48-month contract with an £8,000 deposit.

There are 11 different colours to choose from including two reds, an orange, two blues and a green. Well done Hyundai. Plus, you get a five-year unlimited mileage warranty and an eight-year, 100,000 mile battery warranty.
