Pure battery electric vehicles emit no tailpipe emissions and the KONA scores full points in this part of the assessment.

Comments

Green NCAP currently assesses energy efficiency purely on a 'tank to wheel' basis i.e. upstream energy consumption, such as that used to generate the electricity in the first place, are not currently included. The KONA's efficiency is better than Green NCAP's maximum scoring limit in all tests, albeit only just in the case of the cold ambient test, so the car scores maximum points for energy efficiency.

Our verdict

The KONA is the smallest of Hyundai's SUVs, positioned beneath the Tucson and Santa Fe. Launched in 2017 with a range of combustion engines, the EV followed soon after and that is the version that is tested here. As with all other pure electric vehicles, there are no tailpipe emissions so the car is assured of maximum points for Clean Air and for Greenhouse Gases. Even electric cars have to consume energy in order to move but, here too, the KONA's efficiency remains within the zone for which maximum points are scored (<30 kWh/100 km), although it gets close to the limit in the -7 degree test. All in all, the Kona's all-electric powertrain ensures a maximum five-star rating in Green NCAP.
