Starting with the entry-level Comfort version, the Hyundai Kona Electric features include 17-inch alloy wheels with 215/60 R17 tires, a 12.3-inch multimedia screen with navigation and a fully digital instrument panel (12.3 inches). Other features, infotainment and safety systems are:

Comfort Smart

The Comfort Smart version goes a step further. That one adds features such as automatic tailgate, Head-up Display (HUD), heated front seats, heated steering wheel, privacy glass and a Seamless Horizon light (all-LED).

Premium version

The most luxurious version of the Kona Electric is the Premium. This premium version is available only in combination with the 65.4 kWh battery pack. With the Digital Key 2 Touch, the Kona Electric can be locked and unlocked via a smartphone or smartwatch, and inside, occupants enjoy a rich and immersive listening experience thanks to the Bose Premium audio system with seven speakers and a subwoofer.

In addition, the Premium trim includes 19-inch alloy wheels with 235/45 R19 tires, leather seat upholstery, a Surround View Monitor (SVM, 360-degree camera), E-Active Sound Design, heated front and rear seats, Blind-spot View Monitor (BVM), Parking Collision-avoidance Assist (PCA) and Remote Smart Parking Assist (RSPA).

In addition, the Kona Electric Premium is equipped with front reclining seats. For added convenience, there is the Vehicle-to-Load (V2L) function for charging electrical devices, such as a laptop or electric bike. This makes Hyundai one of the first manufacturers to offer this technology more broadly on electric cars.
