The vital final detail to the

2019 Hyundai Kona Electric

is here: pricing. The base model starts at $37,495 before the $7,500 federal tax credit, meaning that with the credit, it starts at $29,995. The


Electric’s closest competitor is the

Chevy Bolt EV

has the exact same base price at $37,495, or $29,995 after the tax incentive. However,

the tax credit is likely going to run out in the next few months for GM and the Bolt EV

, meaning that once

electric cars

, the credit will drop to $3,750 for six months, and then $1,875 for six more months, and nothing after.

In addition to having a base price that matches the

Chevy Bolt EV

, the

Hyundai Kona

Electric has a few choice features that makes it an even more attractive deal. The Kona has a range of 258 miles, 20 more than the

Bolt EV’s

238 miles. The Kona also includes DC fast charging capability as standard. To have that feature on the Bolt EV, you’ll have to shell out an extra $750.

The Bolt EV does have an advantage over the Kona Electric, though: it’s available everywhere, right now. The Hyundai Kona Electric will start hitting


early in 2019. Unfortunately, it will only be available in western and northeastern states with zero-emissions vehicle criteria and interest.
