While we wait for Tesla to launch the affordable versions of the Model 3, automakers have been filling that void with some impressive vehicles that are sure to have Elon paying attention. The latest entry into the EV fold is Hyundai's Kona Electric, a compact crossover that offers 258 miles of range for under $30,000 with the included $7,500 US tax credit.
The Kona Electric will come in three trims and will have standard features such as fast charging, regenerative braking, a variety of safety assist systems, and heated front seats. The Limited version will add LED headlights, an Infinity Premium Audio system, and wireless device charging while the Ultimate features all of the above as well as rain-sensing wipers, parking sensors, a heated steering wheel, 8-inch touchscreen with navigation, and a heads-up display.
Available in early 2019.
