The Hyundai Kona has been updated for the 2022 model year, and that includes the Kona Electric which receives a new front-end design. The unique dimpled front panel of the outgoing model has been replaced with a new aerodynamic shape that features a prominent horizontal line below the Hyundai badge, new headlights and new DRLs, as well as an open lower fascia with vents to either side. Kona Electric continues to be powered by a 150-kW electric motor that produces 201 horsepower and 291 lb-ft of torque delivered to the front wheels. Electricity is stored in a high-voltage 64-kWh lithium-ion battery. Kona Electric uses a Level 2 onboard charging system capable of a 7.2 kW rate for rapid recharging. Using a Level 3 fast charger, the battery pack can charge from 10 percent to 80 percent in approximately 47 minutes.
