2019 Hyundai Kona EV Priced Under $30,000 In The U.S.
The 258-mile Hyundai Kona EV has a starting price of $36,450 in the U.S.
That’s the price before the $7,500 U.S. government rebate for electric cars.
Once you add that, the Kona EV price comes down to $28,950 ($29,995 including delivery), which makes it one of the most affordable long-range electric vehicles currently on the market.
On top of all, that price doesn’t factor in the local U.S. states incentives, which further lower the price.
California for instance offers additional rebate of $2500, while New York gives you a $2000 incentive.
That can bring the effective total to $27,495 (shipping included) for the 2019 Hyundai Kona Electric.
2019 Hyundai Kona electric price (by trim level)
- Hyundai Kona electric entry level model: $36,450
- Other trim levels (note): Hyundai Motor America has yet to reveal full pricing details for the US-market Kona EV. They’ve told us that there will be several trim levels will available, but pricing details for higher-spec versions will be released closer to the car’s official on-sale date.
Lower price than Chevy Bolt
Hyundai’s new electric SUV hasn’t got many rivals. The one we do believe consumers will be comparing to is the Chevy Bolt.
The Chevy Bolt EV starts at $36,620 in the US-market and boasts around 20 miles shorter range than the Kona electric. Another win for Hyundai!
On-sale date & U.S. availability (good & bad news)
The 2019 Hyundai Kona electric is coming to your local dealership stores in a month or two.
According to Hyundai Motor America, the very first models are slated to hit the stores already in January 2019.
But, there’s a catch!
The initial availability of the all-electric Kona will be limited to California!
The ZEV-focused states in the western and northwestern regions will follow later in the year.
The bad news are, however, that this cool electric crossover vehicle won’t be available nationwide any time soon.
