The Kona Hybrid uses the same powertrain as has been employed in the Ioniq Hybrid, which combines a Kappa 1.6 GDi Atkinson Cycle petrol engine with a 1.56kWh battery and 43.5hp electric motor to deliver a maximum hybrid system power of 141hp and 265Nm torque to the front wheels, via a six-speed dual clutch transmission (DCT).
Other changes to the regular petrol/diesel-powered Kona include a multi-link rear suspension from the top-of-the-line Kona Premium GT, and the hybrid power comes with the towing capacity of up to 1,300kg. There are eight colours to choose from, including the no-cost option of Galactic Grey (pearl) and metallic paints costing an additional £565.
From £22,495, the Kona Hybrid SE includes climate control, an electric parking brake and steering wheel mounted gearshift paddles. Exterior changes include 16-inch wheels and Blue Drive badging to the wings and tailgate. Interior changes for the hybrid model include white accents around the air vents and gear lever surround, as well as accompanying white stitching to the seats.
