They’re cute, they’re compact, and they’re completely electric. Among the growing swath of budget EVs, the updated 2022 Hyundai Kona Electric is one of the more interesting options of the bunch. It has unique styling, great range, and a decent crop of technology and safety equipment depending on how you spec it. The car pictured here, for example, is a top-trim Limited model, so it’s loaded with all the good stuff.
But once you get past the Kona’s cuteness, Hyundai’s compact EV fails to nail some of the basics. It’s down on space and lacking in performance, and it costs way too much compared to alternatives like the Chevrolet Bolt and Nissan Leaf. In this case, the Kona’s quirky looks only take it so far.
