Hyundai Kona Electric
We're quite pleased with Hyundai's EV hatch.
They beat Volvo S60, Jaguar I-Pace, Chevy Silverado.
The entry-level long-range EV market is heating up.
These are electric cars and plug-in hybrids that will still qualify for the full $7,500 EV tax credit in 2019.

It uses the Kona Electric's motor.
It holds up to Hyundai's estimate and exceeds the range of many other EVs.
Let's get the most salient details out of the way: The Hyundai Kona Electric will show up in California in the fourth quarter of 2018, and other "ZEV-focused states" will soon follow. We'd expect to see the Kona EV in dealerships along the East and West Coasts and in New England in early 2019. It'll have an estimated range of 250 miles from its 64 kWh lithium ion battery pack. Its electric motor sends 201 horsepower and 291 pound-feet of torque to the front wheels.
