Hyundai’s latest EV might look like a hatch, but its proportions put it closer to an SUV. Whichever way you measure it up, though, it’s a rapid performer and truly feels like a product of tomorrow.
Hyundai has given the Kona Electric a reworking for 2021, giving it new looks and making changes to afford it a claimed 484km of range on paper – but can it truly match those claims on tarmac?
We take Mazda’s first all-electric model for a spin ahead of its Australian launch to see how the company’s latest experiment stacks up.
Kia’s first pure-electric model, the Niro EV, might be an unfortunate case of too little, too late when it comes to this ageing model’s 2021 Australian debut.
Combining a surprisingly punchy and frugal engine with a perfectly usable amount of pure-electric driving range, the XC40 Plug-in Hybrid makes a very strong case for itself as a usable daily driver.
While Hyundai is clearly looking towards the future with its current Ioniq model and newly-established sub-brand of the same name, the current Plug-in Hybrid model is one version that still feels perfectly suited to today’s age.
