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.

Poll: Hyundai Kona crushes Renault Zoe

Renault has opened the Zoe up for public sale, but its price point could prove prohibitive if our latest poll is any guide. Put head-to-head with the Hyundai Kona Electric, the little electric Renault garnered just 16 per cent of the vote. With a starting price of $47,990 before on-road costs, pushing to $49,990 before on-roads in top grade, the Zoe is priced right around where we're expecting the plug-in electric Hyundai to touch down.
