Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    Hyundai Kona Electric

    • Claimed range of 452km as per ARAI. Even if the real world range drops by a big margin, there’s enough for a week’s worth of commuting
    • 3 year/unlimited km warranty on the car & 8 year/1,60,000km warranty for the battery pack
    • Feature loaded electric car. Gets goodies like LED projector headlamps, powered driver seat, heated and cooled front seats, sunroof, 8-inch touchscreen, 6 airbags, traction control & a lot more
    • Super smooth drive experience. Immediate acceleration, nearly noise free driving and easy to understand driving behaviour make it a good purchase for first time electric vehicle buyers
    • Multiple charging options - DC fast charge, level 2 AC wallbox charger & level 1 portable charger
    • Low running cost. Hyundai claims overall operational cost, including services, is 1/5th of an equivalent petrol car

    Kia Seltos

    • Driver MID
    • Cabin build and quality
    • Lots to choose from
    • Automatics with all three engines

    Hyundai Kona Electric

    • Average cabin space. Not comparable to a similarly priced petrol/diesel SUV like the Jeep Compass or Hyundai Tucson
    • Average boot space is on par with sub-10 lakh Rupee hatchbacks
    • Limited traveling charge options. You will depend on availability of fast charge stations or have to use the portable charger that takes several hours for a full charge
    • Lacks the road presence and size of a price rival like the Compass or Tucson

    Kia Seltos

    • Underthigh support
    • No 6 airbag option with diesel variants
