DesignYou gotta start somewhere
Hyundai might already have the Kona Electric up its sleeve, but this is its first car built as a dedicated EV. Not just a model also designed for combustion engines. It means Hyundai can fully exploit the space-saving advantages of EVs and start with a clean-sheet of paper. Spy shots of the production car show the concept design has been toned down a little, but there’s still a windscreen and rear window angled at a rakish, yes, 45 degrees, so too the wheels-pushed-to-the-corners look for a planted stance and generous room inside. Best of all, the crisp lines are a signpost for all future Hyundais.
