2021 Hyundai Kona Electric for Sale in Fairfield, CT
The 2021 Hyundai Kona Electric is a zero-emissions compact crossover that was designed with the modern driver in mind. Not only is it one of the most efficient models on the market, it’s also stylish, practical, punchy, and well appointed with desirable amenities like wireless smartphone charging and driver-assist technology. Forget making trips to the fuel pump or maintenance department for things like oil changes; this well-rounded vehicle will help you save cash as long as you own it. That’s especially true since it comes with 3 years/36,000 miles of complimentary maintenance, which covers tire rotations and routine inspections, where your Hyundai service team can nip any developing issues in the bud before they turn in to bigger repairs.
Trims and Powertrain
The 2021 Hyundai Kona Electric is offered in three trim levels: SEL, Limited, and Ultimate. Each uses a 64-kWh battery pack to power the 150-kW electric motor, which delivers 201 hp and 291 lb.-ft. of torque. All three trims are front-wheel drive and achieve an EPA-estimated 258 miles of range on a full charge. With the standard Level II charger, the 2021 Hyundai Kona can be fully charged in 9 hours and 35 minutes. The available 50-kW Level III charger markedly improves that, delivering 0–80% charging time in 75 minutes, and the 100-kW Level III charger reduces that same 0–80% charging time to 54 minutes. The Kona EV’s regenerative braking can also extend driving range by taking what would normally be wasted energy (that which is created by the braking process) is routed to the battery as stored power.
Features, Safety and Technology
The SEL comes with quite a few nice features, including LED daytime running lights, 17-inch wheels, heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, keyless entry and push-button start, automatic climate control, heated front seats, a 60/40 split fold-flat rear seatback, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, Hyundai’s Blue Link Connected Car System, a dual-level cargo floor, and a rearview camera system with parking guidance. The Limited adds a battery heater to improve its performance in cold weather, along with LED headlights, a sunroof, leather seats, a wireless smartphone charger, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink, and a power-adjustable driver’s seat. The Ultimate is even more loaded, getting rain-sensing windshield wipers, ventilated front seats, and a head-up display.
Each of the 2021 Kona Electric trims receives some form of Hyundai’s SmartSense active safety features. The SEL gets forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist, a driver attention monitor, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert; the Limited adds automatic high beams. The Ultimate rounds out the list of safety technologies with adaptive cruise control, rear parking sensors, and pedestrian detection.
The infotainment system in the SEL and Limited has a 7-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming capability, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a six-speaker audio system, satellite and HD radio, and dual USB ports. The Ultimate gets an upgraded infotainment system with a 10.25-inch touchscreen, navigation, and a premium eight-speaker Infinity audio system.
