The electric version of the Hyundai Kona will be assembled in EuropeFebruary 1, 2020
This decision was made against the backdrop of high demand for the car, which significantly exceeded all forecasts.
Korean auto giant Hyundai said that the Kona Electric model will now also be produced at the company’s plant in the Czech Republic. This is due to the high popularity of the car in the European car market. Therefore, copies that go off the assembly line of the Ulsan plant in South Korea reach customers for a very long time. At the same time, Hyundai plans to increase production at the South Korean plant, while production in Europe is just getting better. Car production in Europe will begin this year.
In total, in 2020 Hyundai plans to assemble 80,000 electric vehicles for Europe – among them will be the Kona Electric, IONIQ Electric and NEXO models.
Thus, the Korean automaker could become a leader in Europe in this regard. At the same time, Hyundai is actively introducing hybrid technologies into its cars – we are talking about both hybrids with a voltage of 48 volts, and about full and plug-in hybrid power plants.
