The new 2021 Hyundai Kona Electric has undergone bold exterior design enhancements, making it even more recognisable. There are a series of updates to its successful all-electric sub-compact SUV.
The updated Hyundai Kona Electric is scheduled to launch in India by mid 2021.
The front with the new-look closed grille features a pure and clean design. This modern look is further enhanced by the new LED Daytime Running Lights. New, sharper headlamps stretch around the side of the car. The high-tech headlamp inner bezel now incorporates multifaceted reflector (MFR) technology.
The new Kona Electric is 25 millimetres longer than the previous version. This ensures it has a dynamic appearance combined with a strong visual stance.
The 2021 Hyundai Kona Electric is equipped with a new 10.25-inch digital cluster, while an optional 10.25-inch AVN screen is carried over from the last update.
Meanwhile, new ambient light technology illuminates the passenger and driver side footwell, emphasising the lifestyle character of the vehicle.
Customers can select from two interior colour packages for further customisation. The one-tone Black package is available with cloth, or leather materials. Alternatively, the two-tone Grey interior package is available with leather materials.
New Kona Electric customers can enjoy the new Bluelink upgrade, which allows them to control their car with their smartphone or voice to make their drive more convenient and enjoyable.
The new second row USB port delivers additional power to recharge devices on-board if needed.
