Hyundai Kona Electric waiting times slashed from months to days

Hyundai has announced that it aims to become one of the nation’s largest providers of electric cars, and customers looking for an all-electric Hyundai can order their car now with delivery in as little as a few days. This is a huge turnaround on the situation last year, when people wanting a Hyundai Kona Electric were being quoted 12-18 month waiting times.

In response to significant customer demand, Hyundai announced in January this year that Kona Electric waiting times would be significantly reduced, following a ramp up in production of the fully electric model. Through the introduction of manufacture at its European Czech-based plant and by increasing existing availability from its facility in Ulsan, South Korea, supply has now made its way to the UK market, resulting in a confirmed supply of thousands of electric vehicles, along with the recently refreshed IONIQ Plug-In Hybrid and Electric.

Hyundai currently offers the Kona Electric and IONIQ Electric. By the end of the year three quarters of the entire Hyundai range will be ‘electrified’, with the addition of new 48V mild hybrid i20 & i30 and Hybrid & Plug-In Hybrid Santa Fe.
