Hyundai unveils sporty new Kona Electric N Line with bold design elements


The all-electric Hyundai Kona EV is getting the sporty N Line treatment. Hyundai unveiled the new Kona Electric N Line with stylish design upgrades.

Hyundai Motor Europe’s best-selling EV is getting even more attractive. The Kona Electric is Hyundai Europe’s first EV to get the sporty N Line treatment.

The new 2024 Hyundai Kona Electric is an improvement over the previous version in every way. Hyundai upgraded the model with a new “EV-derived” design, including its signature pixel lights and “Seamless Horizon” LED DRLs.

Hyundai’s new Kona EV design is aligned with its dedicated electric models like the IONIQ 5 and IONIQ 6.

The new model is nearly 6″ longer with an extra 3″ legroom in the back seat. It also includes 33% more cargo space (up to 63.7 cubic feet) in the rear. A fully foldable back seat frees up space for larger items.

At 171.3″ long, 71.9″ wide, and 62.2″ tall, the new Hyundai Kona EV is roughly the same size as the Volvo EX30 and Chevy Bolt EUV.

Two seat choices are available: the N Line with cloth or the N Line S with Eco Alcantara & Leather combination.

The N Line S model starts at £43,095 ($54,500). It also includes a 65 kWh battery but builds on the base model. Added interior features include heated and ventilated seats and a premium BOSE sound system.

On the outside, you will find N Line S features like its signature Full Width Horizon Centre DRL and full projection LED headlamps. It will also include added safety features.

Hyundai plans to begin production of the new Kona Electric N Line in February, with the first models rolling out this spring.

Electrek’s Take

Although this model is for Europe, Hyundai will likely launch the new N Line version in the US. The US is Hyundai’s largest market for passenger vehicles, and the brand is already outpacing many rivals as the demand for EVs picks up.

Hyundai Motor Group (including Kia) overtook Ford and GM to take second in US EV sales last year, behind only Tesla.

Hyundai and Kia accounted for around 8% of passenger EVs handed over in the US in 2023 with around 117,000 models handed over. That’s without their electric models qualifying for the $7,500 EV tax credit (only through leasing).

The upgraded 2024 Hyundai Kona Electric is one of the best deals in the US starting at under $33,000. If you’re looking to go electric, we can help you get started. You can use our link to find a great deal on the new Hyundai Kona EV at a dealer near you.
