Hyundai Kona EV price cut by Rs. 1.58 lakh post GST rate cut

Last month, the government of India had slashed the GST rate on EVs from 12% to 5%. As a result, the price of the Hyundai Kona Electric has been reduced by around Rs. 1.58 lakh. 

The Hyundai Kona Electric was launched at a price of Rs. 25,30,000 (ex-showroom, India). With reduction in GST, the electric SUV is now available at Rs. 23,71,858.

The Kona Electric uses a 39.2 kWh battery that powers an electric motor that has an output of 134 BHP and 395 Nm. Hyundai claims that the car can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 9.7 seconds, while the battery is said to offer an ARAI certified range of 452 km on a single charge.
