Hyundai Kona Electric wins 2019 Fleet News Award for Best Zero Emission Car

7 Hyundai Kona Electric

Few cars are more representative of the current needs of the fleet sector than the Kona Electric.

The small SUV is the first electric car to provide long-range travel at an affordable price. It is also wrapped in a modern, desirable package with a high level of standard features.

Until now, higher mileage fleet drivers have had no option but to choose diesel through fear of running out of power.

The 64kWh Kona Electric can comfortably achieve 250 miles (279 WLTP) before it needs to be plugged in.

It also provides excellent performance, accelerating much more quickly than an equivalent petrol or diesel vehicle.

For those who don’t need so much range, the cheaper 39kWh version can still cover 180 miles between charges.

Despite the current supply constraints caused by limited battery availability, judges felt the Kona Electric deserves recognition for upping the bar in the electric car segment.

Finalists: BMW i3, Jaguar iPace, Nissan Leaf, Renault Zoe, Volkswagen e-Golf

Award sponsored by Ogilvie Fleet
