If you wanted an long-range electric vehicle that didn't have a Tesla badge, your best choice was the Chevrolet Bolt EV as it offered a range of 238 miles. But there is a new long-range EV champion/
The EPA has announced the figures for the 2019 Hyundai Kona Electric. It will have a maximum range of 258 miles, which is 20 miles more than the Chevrolet Bolt. It also soundly beats a number of other competitors,
- 107 miles more than a Nissan Leaf (151 mile range)
- 134 miles more than a Hyundai Ioniq Electric (124 mile range)
- 169 miles more than a Honda Clarity EV (89 mile range)
Of course, the Tesla Model 3 Long Range beats the Kona Electric soundly with a range of 310 miles. But standard range Model 3 trails it by 33 miles (215 mile range).
No word on pricing, but the Kona Electric will go on sale towards the end of the year.
