A look at the differences between the Hyundai Kona EV and the new Hyundai IONIQ 5

Hyundai Kona EV

Hyundai has been an industry leader when it comes to electrified vehicles for quite some time now. Hyundai was one of the first to the market with an accessible electric vehicle offering over 400 km of range with the Hyundai Kona EV, and the latter quickly became one of the best-selling vehicles in the electric vehicle segment in Canada with over 6,000 units sold last year.

This year, Hyundai is introducing the all-new Hyundai IONIQ 5, the next generation of its electric vehicle lineup. The Hyundai IONIQ 5 is not only a new kind of electric vehicle, but it is already one of the best-selling EVs in the country with its remarkable design, impressive battery options and range capability, and stunning interior that is more spacious than many sport utility vehicles.

It is not surprising that the 2022 Hyundai IONIQ 5 has been so popular since it arrived on the market. Still, some buyers may be wondering whether they should buy a Hyundai Kona EV which was the benchmark for electrified vehicles for a long time or wait for the all-new 2023 Hyundai IONIQ 5.
