4 July 2018 - Hyundai claimed a double victory at the Auto Express New Car Awards 2018, winning Affordable Electric Car of the Year for the new Kona Electric and Affordable Hybrid Car of the Year.

The All-New #Hyundai Kona Electric fought off competition from the Nissan Leaf and Volkswagen e-Golf and was commended by the judges for its long range of 480 kilometres on a single charge and its affordable price.

Launching a fully-electric SUV means #Hyundai has tapped into two of the fastest-growing parts of the market. The Kona Electric has a 480-kilometre range, so it can go further on a single charge than some of its closest rivals. Add an affordable price tag and it shows that genuinely mainstream electric cars are now viable. The Kona Electric is an outstanding package, which is why we’ve named it Affordable Electric Car of the Year 2018.
