Hyundai has revised pricing of its long-range Kona Electric 64kWh meaning it now has the highest EV range of any Plug-in Car Grant-eligible vehicle
Hyundai has cut prices of all but one of its EVs to ensure they now cost less than £35,000 and remain eligible for the revised £2,500 Plug-in Car Grant.
The firm adds this means the Hyundai Kona Electric, which has a 300-mile EV range, now has the longest electric driving distance of any car currently eligible for the Plug-in Car Grant.
Prices for the Kona Electric 64kWh start from £34,995, which drops to £32,495 when the grant is taken off.
Standard equipment includes two 10.2-inch screens, Krell 8-speaker premium audio and full LED headlights.
The more affordable Kona Electric 39Wh starts from £30,395, which goes down to £27,895 post-grant.
“When it comes to electric vehicles, cost is a big consideration,” said Hyundai UK MD Ashley Andrew.
“It was important for us, in light of the changes to the PiCG, to provide our customers with some additional savings, which we hope will maintain demand for zero emission vehicles.”
Hyundai has also reduced prices of the Ioniq Electric range (pictured above), which now start from £32,995 for the Premium model, going down to £30,495 post-grant.
The Ioniq Premium includes 10.2-inch widescreen sat nav, a wireless charging pad, plus heated seats and steering wheel.
“Ioniq Electric and Kona Electric are currently among the most popular zero emissions vehicles on sale today, and by maintaining the choice and the value available, Hyundai will remain on track to be one of the largest suppliers of electric vehicles in the country.”
