The 2019 Hyundai Kona Electric goes on sale in the U.S.

The 2019 Hyundai Kona Electric goes on sale in the U.S. later this year, and if the automaker’s estimates are correct, it will boast more range than the Chevrolet Bolt.

Hyundai estimates a 250-mile range for the U.S.-spec model. That’s considerably ahead of the Bolt’s 238-mile range confirmed by the EPA. The Nissan Leaf only gets 151 miles to a charge, although a longer-range version should achieve about 225 miles.

The Kona Electric uses an electric motor and a 64-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery to produce a total system output of 201 hp and 291 lb-ft of torque. Yes, it’s more powerful than the gas model. Recharging the EV’s battery to 80 percent takes about 54 minutes with a 100-kW DC fast charger. With a Level II charger, it takes 9 hours and 35 minutes to juice up.
