2020 autoTRADER.ca Awards: Best Green Vehicle Under $50,000 – Hyundai Kona Electric

The Kona EV certainly is a top notch EV for under 50k, and got a well deserved award from autoTRADER in the 2020 Best under 50k. And a nice quick video covering it too!

Its funny to hear the odd contradicting statement in the beginning but it was well redeemed in spades later on! Not even sure why that part wasn’t sent to the trash bin. If anything the 5 raves at the end should have said something a little different.

He said it feels almost like your driving a gas car as if that’s a good thing. But later on he’s clued in on why so many are switching to electric!

  • It’ll save you at the pumps!
  • It’s a blast to drive!
  • Hilariously eagar throttle response!
  • Incredible low end torque!
  • Ensure to put a smile on your face when you hit the skinny peddle.

So post fix I would have added…
