Previously, we shared a story on this rare Hyundai Kona EV that was put up for sale for RM 180k, albeit in pre-facelift form. The good news is, Hyundai Sime Darby Malaysia (HSDM) is planning to launch the facelifted 2021 Hyundai Kona EV in Malaysia by Q4 of this year.
Sources in HSDM told WapCar.my that the facelifted Kona EV will be fully imported from Korea. However, there are no indicative prices at the moment, as HSDM is awaiting the government's announcement regarding EV policies.
Currently, the Hyundai Kona EV is available with two output levels. The first is a 135 PS / 395 Nm variant, juiced by a 39.2-kWh battery, enabling a 300 km range.
The second, more powerful option serves up 204 PS and 395 Nm, powered by a 64-kWh battery pack. This variant offers a 482 km range. Again, sources in HSDM are hopeful that the EV policies announced by the government would be favourable to enable it to offer both variants to the Malaysian market.
