Hyundai’s popular electric vehicle, the Kona Electric, has received top marks in the latest Green NCAP test.
The Green NCAP test is run by an independent organisation and vehicles are rated on their energy efficiency and emissions.
Since its launch in 2018, the Kona Electric has become one of the most popular EVs on the market, delivering a real-world range of up to 279 miles, making it a great EV for a range of lifestyles.
It was awarded the highest mark on the Green NCAP rating, which looks at three areas: clean air, energy efficiency and greenhouse gases.
In its report, Green NCAP wrote: “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:
This year, 24 vehicles have undergone the Green NCAP test and the Kona Electric is only the second vehicle to receive top marks!
Andreas-Christoph Hofmann, Vice President Marketing and Product at Hyundai Motor Europe, said: “We’re delighted that the Kona Electric has received a five-star rating in the Green NCAP assessment. This underlines that our all-electric SUV is not just environmentally friendly in terms of being a zero-emission vehicle, but also a strong product with excellent efficiency. This achievement is a noteworthy accomplishment in our ‘Year of Electrification’ and is further evidence of our industry-leading position in the field of future mobility.”
