HSDM to begin deliveries of Hyundai Kona EV in March, first batch sold out 01

Buyers who are waiting for their Kona EV can look forward to receiving their cars starting March 2022.

The first shipment of slightly over 100 cars was sold out almost as soon as the Kona EV was launched, suggesting that demand for the electric Hyundai is a lot higher than available supply – very impressive for a car that starts from RM 149,888.

The challenge now for distributor Hyundai Sime Darby Motor (HSDM) is less about promoting the Kona EV, but securing enough allocation of the imported (CBU) model to satisfy local demand.

Although the first shipment was sold out very quickly, HSDM is looking forward to import many more units of the Kona EV and yes, you can still place your booking for one.
