Us kiwi's really love our SUV's. With the news that Hyundai are bringing the 100% electric Kona to NZ shores shortly, it could be a game changer for people looking at getting a compact SUV as their next car.

It has a claimed 450km range, this is great - for example the idea of driving from Dunedin to Wanaka on one charge certainly makes the idea of getting an EV a lot more viable as an all rounder rather than just a city commuter, and will probably open up the minds of a lot of people who would have previously not considered an EV.

The car landscape as we know it is undergoing a big change, and this is just another notch in the belt of EV-olution, bring it on.
