Hyundai will launch its all-electric Kona SUV in India on 9th July. The SUV will get powered by a 39.2 kWh battery pack.

A recent report from Express Drives has revealed that Hyundai will launch Kona electric SUV on 9th of July this year. Kona is going to be India's first all-electric SUV. We may expect the SUV to get priced between Rs 20 lakh to Rs 25 lakh. Moreover, the SUV will be imported to India through the CKD (Completely Knocked Down) route. At first, Hyundai will aim to sell 1000 units of this vehicle in the Indian market for the first year.

 Hyundai has also confirmed that initially, they will sell the electric SUV in top 10 metro cities. Moreover, in international markets, Hyundai Kona is available with gasoline as well as electric powertrain. For now, Hyundai will launch only the electric variant of the Kona in India. We may expect Kona to get offered with a gasoline motor in later stages. It's not confirmed but, Hyundai Kona may get powered by a 39.2 kWh battery. The battery pack will produce power and torque outputs of 135 BHP along with 335 Nm. The 39.2 kWh battery pack can offer a range close to 250 Km.  Electric cars are well-known for offering immense off-the-line acceleration due to the quick delivery of torque. The Hyundai Kona can accelerate from standstill to 100 in just 7.6 seconds. Hyundai will also provide charging solutions to the owners of the Kona. These solutions may include fast-charging kits which will be placed at the owner's residence.
