Reviewers at Consumer Reports found much to like about the Hyundai Kona Electric, namely its performance, handling, and price. Paired with a 64-kWh lithium-ion battery, it generates a respectable 201 horsepower and can run 258 miles on a single charge. While noting its stiff ride, CR reviewers praised its quick acceleration (0 to 60 mph in 6.6 seconds), as well as its driver/passenger access, interior tech, and standard safety features.
