Hyundai lists the starting MSRP for the 2023 Hyundai Kona Electric SE at $33,550. Hyundai lists a 258-mile EPA-estimated driving range, 201 hp, and 291 lb-ft of torque for the Kona Electric SE’s 150-kW electric-motor drivetrain. In addition, the Kona Electric SE includes an 8.0-inch color touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to integrate your compatible smartphone into the vehicle’s systems. 

All 2023 Hyundai Kona Electric vehicles feature a 64.0 kilo-watt hour battery. While recharge times vary based on the available charging station type, a standard Level II will provide a full charge from as low as 10 percent in 9 hours and 15 minutes. Level III Quick Charge times from 10 to 80 percent are as low as 47 minutes. 

As the base trim, the SE uses projector-type halogen headlights that do not support “High Beam Assist and standard bulb taillights. Inside the cabin, you’ll find cloth seats, an eight-way power adjustable driver seat with power lumbar support, and a six-way manual passenger seat with heat.

While Hyundai reserves some of its premium driver assistance technology for its top-trim Limited, the SE trim features the following beneficial assistance features:

  • Forward collision-avoidance assist with car/pedestrian detection
  • Lane-keeping assist

  • Five-year or 60,000-mile new vehicle coverage

How much does a fully loaded 2023 Hyundai Kona Electric cost? 

First, the 2023 Hyundai Kona Electric Limited starts at $41,550. Note that the Limited trim shares many similarities with the SE trim, including driving range, battery specs, and drivetrain, and includes all of the SE’s features except as noted. However, the top trim includes upgrades such as:

  • LED headlights with High Beam Assist and LED taillights
  • Leather-trimmed seating surfaces
  • Ventilated front seats
  • 10.25-inch touchscreen display with navigation

  • Hyundai Digital Key
  • Auto-dimming rearview mirror

When using Hyundai’s online build tool, our first choice is the exterior paint color. Hyundai provides eight color options at no additional cost: gray, white, blue, fern, blue, two blacks, and two reds. Inside, there are two no-cost interior color choices: gray or black. Unfortunately, there are no package upgrades, but some interesting accessories are available.
