Back in January our spy photographer CarPix caught the plug-in hybrid version of the Hyundai Kona and today its spotted again but without its heavy front camouflage.
South Korea’s Hyundai Motor Company continuing with its road map for green cars and had plans to roll out 38 green car models by 2025 from the current 16, pursuing a two-track strategy centered on electric vehicles and fuel cell electric vehicles.
Let’s start with design. Outside, the new Kona PHEV will probably share a similar front end compared to the Kona Electric, as the camouflage left us to see two scuttles for charging system. The optional LED headlights, tail lights and the LEDs daytime running lights looks the same as the Electric variant.
Inside is where we will find some of the upgrades compared to the normal Kona and the Kona EV, despite it has the same interior as the normal Kona with an automatic transmission we can confirm that Hyundai is planning to apply the same 10.25-inch Infotainment system as seen on the Ioniq facelift. The new widescreen unit supports voice recognition as part of the Bluelink Services, supports to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and Hyundai LIVE Services as well.
We are getting closer and closer for its unveiled, stay tuned for more new details.
