Hyundai Kona EV set for Geneva debut

Rumours have abounded for some time of an electric version of the Kona compact SUV, but a source from Hyundai’s European arm has confirmed the EV is set for a debut at the Geneva Show in March. The car will be engineered for right-hand drive markets and, if the sums work out, it’s likely to be offered for sale in Australia. This would give Hyundai a two-pronged EV offensive – the Ioniq sedan targeting business users and the Kona EV marketed as a second car for urban private buyers.
