Hyundai Kona Electric

Current Model
The Kona electric is as good as the conventional version. Its 201-hp electric motor makes the car quick, with smooth and quiet acceleration.
Its range is a robust 258 miles. It takes 9 hours to charge the 64-kilowatt-hour battery from empty on a 240-volt connector. Unlike the regular Kona, the electric version is front-wheel-drive only. It has nimble handling, which makes the Kona responsive when going through corners. The ride, however, is stiff. The controls are very straightforward, though the EV has an odd gear selector that is challenging to use at a glance. Standard safety features include forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, blind spot warning, and rear cross traffic warning. The Kona Electric is available in limited states.
