Hyundai Kona will be offered in 16 cities across India initially.
At the price point they are offering, it better come with all the features offered in global markets.

I was really looking forward for Kona EV in India. Unfortunately I am really disappointed with the pricing of the vehicle. 20-25 lakhs ex-showroom price for a mid-sized SUV in India is disaster pricing, specially when it is already being made in India.

I wish if Hyundai can keep the pricing below 20 on-road, I would be in queue to buy this as my next car.

Saw a Kona on the highway near NHPC metro station in Faridabad. I was around 70 and this car overtook, seemed to make progress pretty fast.

Hyundai Kona finds its own 'kona' (corner) on Hyundai India's website.

Looks very interesting. Using the CKD route they are reducing the cost/price. I frankly hope they succeed. I will prefer the bigger power model (at least as an option)

I hope this car garners enough attention in the market which makes Hyundai launch the regular version as well. It looks drop dead gorgeous!

Hyundai seems to be getting ready to unveil the Kona. I noticed a 'Hyundai Electric' board in a corner (Kona? ) of Popular Hyundai today.

Im a huge electric fan! (pun not intended) Hyundai Kona will revolutionize the electric revolution in India. Hope they price it within reach!

Top speed is 167kph which imo is plenty enough for the first proper electric car in our market. Range is 480km going by the stickering on the car in the below video, will be interesting to see how much we get here owing to our traffic conditions.

I saw a Kona (in White) today in Faridabad going towards Gurugram. Could not take pics as I was driving in traffic on other side.

Still can confirm it stands out & seemingly is taller than i20 IMO.

Here's their first promo. With such a unique product, the market will need to be educated on EVs too (something Mahindra never did):

Quote:
Hyundai Motor India Ltd., country’s First Smart Mobility Solutions Provider and largest exporter since inception, today launched its Campaign ‘Do You Know?’ to clear the myths and doubts customers have about EVs and to spread the facts and advantages of owning an Electric Vehicle. Hyundai would be releasing 8 ‘EV Facts Sharing’ videos starting today on its social media platforms ahead of the launch of India’s First Fully Electric SUV – KONA Electric in India. KONA Electric is globally acclaimed electric SUV which has proved its mettle in the sphere of clean mobility.

Speaking at the launch of the campaign, Mr. Puneet Anand, Senior GM & Group Head – Marketing, Hyundai Motor India Ltd. said, “Hyundai KONA Electric is The NEW NORMAL. We have always been a Brand with a Cause and Customer Centric organization striving to excel with Innovative Mobility Solutions by exploring newer avenues and possibilities. With KONA Electric, Hyundai will give a New Dimension to Indian Automobile Industry Embarking An Era of Cleaner, Greener and Sustainable Mobility. There have been numerous myths and ambiguities about electric vehicles and their ownership among Indian customers - the campaign ‘Do You Know?’ is an effort to dispel the myths and share the facts about EVs among customers.”

The campaign would be covering the major customer concerns and anxieties about owning an electric vehicle like:

Fast Charging
Powerful Performance
Convenient Charging
Long Battery Life
Low Running Cost
High Safety Standards
Premium Looks and Features
Long Driving Range
