Hyundai Says It’s Been Overwhelmed By Demand For The Kona Ev

When Hyundai announced that it would build an electric version of its Kona subcompact crossover, we had a feeling it would be a hit. It offers an impressive 258 miles of range, a relatively affordable $37,495 MSRP, and better-than-expected driving dynamics.
