2018-2020 Hyundai Kona EV and Nexo recalled with brake fault

Hyundai Australia has recalled 1072 examples of its Kona Electric and hydrogen-powered Nexo, citing a fault with the Integrated Electronic Brake system (IEB). The affected vehicles were sold between 1 May 2018 and 31 December 2020, with Model Years ranging between 2018 and 2020. The recall notice, lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), says “a software fault in the IEB may significantly reduce braking performance.”

Hyundai investigating Kona Electric explosion

Hyundai is investigating why a parked Kona Electric exploded while in a Canadian garage. The pure-electric SUV was sitting unplugged in the garage when its owner noticed clouds of dark smoke coming from the garage. The five-month old Kona Electric then exploded – blowing the garage door off in the progress, and damaging the neighbouring property. Firefighters found no obvious ignition sources in the garage, suggesting the car spontaneously exploded.

2019 Hyundai Kona Electric pricing and specs

Hyundai Australia has launched its second EV, the Kona Electric, which sits above the Ioniq and gives the company ammunition to become the local leader in semi-affordable, pluggable vehicles. The Kona Electric wears a starting sticker price of $59,990 before on-road costs in Elite spec level: $10,000 pricier than the Nissan Leaf and $15,000 more than a base Ioniq. The Kona Electric Highlander costs $64,490. However, it's not quite apples for apples.

Hyundai Kona EV, Kia e-Niro range downgraded

The long-range Hyundai Kona EV has had its range downgraded on the WLTP test cycle, after the company discovered its external test agency hadn't followed the correct test procedure. Kia last week downgraded the range of its e-Niro for the same reason. The re-rating means the 39kWh Kona is rated for 289km instead of 300km, while the 64kWh model is officially good for 449km rather than the 470km initially promised.
