hyundai electric cars 2024

Founded in 1996, Hyundai Motor India Ltd. has become the second-largest carmaker in the country. It comes as no surprise that the brand has been one of the largest car exporters for many years. The Korean carmaker started its Indian innings with the Santro and the Accent. 

After signing a global superstar like Shahrukh Khan as its brand ambassador, Hyundai is now a household name. Its model lineup for India comprises a range of hatchbacks, sedans, and SUVs. Hyundai has also worked on adding two electric cars in its portfolio. Both these EVs are world-class offerings that excel in many aspects. 

However, unlike Tata and Mahindra, which are continuously making a space for their brand in the mainstream EV segment, Hyundai’s EVs are positioned towards the premium end. Still, they make a lot of sense for anyone who would like to make a switch to electric cars without worrying about losing out on any sort of grace and grandeur. With this in mind, let’s take a look at some of the best Hyundai electric car in India in 2024:

Kona electric

Launched in July 2019, the Kona EV became Hyundai's first-ever electric car. Currently, it retails at a starting price of Rs ₹23.84 lakh (ex-showroom) and rivals the rugged and zesty MG ZS EV. 

While this electric car comes to us via CKD (Completely Knocked Down) route with some localisation to keep the costs in check. Visually, the Kona EV looks a lot like the ICE-powered version available outside India. However, as is the case with such ICE-to-EV conversions, the Indian model doesn’t get a front grille or exhaust pipes.

The Kona EV comes equipped with bespoke 17-inch alloy wheels and EV-specific badges. This vehicle is available in four single-tone and 1 dual-tone options These include white, silver, blue, black, and white with black roof. However, the latter configuration bumps up the price by ₹20,000. 

Inside, the Hyundai Kona EV features a 7-inch digital instrument cluster, HUD, wireless smartphone charging, 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, heated and ventilated front seats, and 10-way driver seat adjustments.

Some of the key safety features include heated ORVMs, electric sunroof, 6 airbags, ABS with EBD, ESC, Traction Control, HAS, Rear Parking Sensors, Rear Camera, TPMS, and rear defogger. The Hyundai Kona EV is powered by a permanent magnet synchronous motor that generates a respectable power output of 136 bhp and has a peak torque of 395 Nm.

The EV gets its juice from a 39.2 kWh lithium-ion battery that can offer a stellar ARAI-rated driving range of 452 kilometres on a single charge The battery pack can be charged fully in just 57 minutes through a 50 kW DC fast charger. A standard AC charger can replenish the battery totally in 6 hours and 10 minutes.
