It’s no surprise that the crossover segment has been at the top of the auto industry for a few years now, with solo drivers and families alike flocking to the class for its seamless combination of capability, reliability, and style. And with more and more effort going into technological innovations, a new electric crossover was bound to make its way to the market eventually. Hyundai recently announced plans to bring the Kona Electric, an EV variant of the brand’s popular Kona nameplate, to Europe.
Electric crossovers and SUVs are on the itinerary for several automakers, though most brands are projecting the release of said vehicles to fall somewhere between 2020 and 2025. But Hyundai is ahead of the curve – with the Hyundai Kona Electric hitting European roads soon, it’s only a matter of time until the EV model makes its way to U.S. shores, as well as around the rest of the globe.
Because the Hyundai Kona is already a compact crossover, many of its fans are already drivers looking for the spaciousness and versatility of an SUV combined with the fuel economy of the compact class. With a new electric crossover on the way, Hyundai is giving drivers the option of an even more fuel-efficient crossover.
