The Hyundai Kona Electric 64KWh, capable of travelling up to 300 miles (WLTP) on a single charge, now costs £34,995 in Premium specification, bringing it under the threshold for the revised UK Government Plug-In Car Grant. This means that it has the longest electric range of any Plug-In Car Grant-eligible vehicle.
Previously electric cars up to £50,000 were eligible for a £3,000 grant, but the changes reduce those figures to £35,000 and £2,500 respectively.
The Hyundai Kona Electric 64KWh in Premium SE trim costs £37,145, so this model is still above the threshold.
Kona Electric 39KWh prices have also been reduced with the SE Connect now costing £30,395 and Premium at £31,745 (before first registration fee applied).
Hyundai Kona SE Connect models are equipped with two 10.2-inch screens, 17-inch alloy wheels and a Krell 8-speaker premium audio system while Premium adds technology such as full LED headlights.
The Hyundai IONIQ Electric range also sees prices cut for the Premium model to £32,995 and the Premium SE to £34,995 (before first registration fee applied). Premium models have 10.2-inch widescreen navigation, 7-inch TFT Driver Information Display, Wireless Charging Pad, heated seats and steering wheel. The Premium SE adds ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, leather seat facings and Memory Function driver’s seat.
Now all but one Hyundai electric vehicle qualifies for the grant.
