New 2022 Hyundai Kona Electric Introducing https://youtu.be/5zEsUoq1a7A

The Kona Electric receives a styling update for 2022 that includes new front and rear bumpers, new wheel designs, and a tweaked interior that now comes standard with a 10.3-inch digital gauge display. The top Ultimate trim has been eliminated in favor of simplifying the lineup to the base SEL and the luxury Limited models.
We'd recommend the SEL trim with the optional Convenience package. Although the SEL comes fairly well equipped right out of the gate, the Convenience package adds several desirable features, including a sunroof, a wireless smartphone-charging pad, and heated front seats.
A 201-hp electric motor drives the front wheels (all-wheel drive isn't offered) and is powered by a 64.0-kWh battery pack. At our test track, the Kona Electric galloped from zero to 60 mph in 6.4 seconds, 0.2 second quicker than the regular Kona. As with the regular Kona, the electric version offers sprightly driving dynamics, which makes it fun to scamper along a twisty two-lane. It doesn't offer sports-car-level thrills, but for a subcompact SUV it's compelling to drive. It also cruises smoothly at highway speeds and feels substantial and planted thanks to the heavy battery mounted in the floor and its resulting low center of gravity.
Aggressive regenerative braking allows for true one-pedal driving and helps extend the driving range to a claimed 258 miles—one mile less than the Bolt EV. Pulling the paddles behind the steering wheel allows the driver to adjust the level of regen; we prefer the most aggressive setting. The Kona Electric can be charged on a 110-volt household outlet, but we wouldn't recommend that on a day-to-day basis; a 240-volt outlet is best for home charging, and the Kona Electric also can be charged at a DC fast-charging station.
