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

    Volkswagen Taigun

    • Classy Volkswagen family SUV look
    • Punchy and refined 1.5-litre TSi engine
    • Impressive infotainment experience
    • Fun to drive
    • Automatic transmission with both engine options.

    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

    Volkswagen Taigun

    • Sitting three people at the back is a squeeze
    • Fit and finish levels are not as good as the Vento
    • GT Line gets less features as compared to the Highline
    • No diesel engine option

Must read articles before buying Hyundai Kona Electric and Volkswagen Taigun

  • The Hyundai Kona EV is India’s first long-range electric vehicle. But at its price, it has rivals that offer the best in premium packaging. So who is the Kona EV for?

    By TusharJul 11, 2019
  • With its Indianised platform, does the Taigun compromise on its innate Volkswagen-ness or can it impart the feel of an upgrade over the Polo and Vento?
