    2019 Hyundai Kona Electric costs $500 more than it did last month

    Market adjustments are nothing new, and electric cars are hardly immune to price bumps—up or down. Last month, the 258-mile 2019 Hyundai Kona Electric crossover quietly became $500 dearer to interested EV shoppers without any equipment changes. The automaker hiked the starting price for a...

    Tesla batteries, EPA comments, Hyundai and Kia plug-in availability: Today's Car News

    Acting EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler said electric cars are "not grounds for concern" at the EPA—yet highway safety and car prices are. Tesla buys a company that builds ultracapacitors. Hyundai and Kia aim to avoid the dreaded "compliance car" label with their EV sales—barely. We...

  • 2019 Kia Niro EV

    The Kia Niro EV that we drove earlier this week is one of the year’s best new green vehicles, and a great long-range electric car. However, unless you happen to live in one of several specific states and regions, the chances that you’ll see one are quite low. Based on conversations with officials at both Hyundai Motor America and Kia Motors America over the past several months, we project that U.S. sales for all four of these brand’s fully electric small-car models combined—the Hyundai Kona Electric, Hyundai Ioniq Electric, Kia Niro EV, and Kia Soul EV—will total...

Based on early details...

    Hyundai last week made the first U.S. delivery of its Nexo fuel-cell vehicle—to a customer in Southern California.

    RIP 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe diesel, we never knew ye

    The 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe diesel experiment is over before it began.

  • Hyundai Nexo

    Pricing for hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles, like the upcoming 2019 Hyundai Nexo, hasn’t meant all that much up until now. That’s because both of the other fuel-cell vehicles currently offered—and most of them offered to date—emphasize highly subsidized lease programs. But it’s actually not in this case here. Hyundai plans to sell the Nexo, not just lease it. According to information found by the pricing experts at CarsDirect, it’s set a price of $59,345 for the base 2019 Hyundai Nexo Blue and $62,845 for the Nexo Limited. Both include a $1,045 destination fee...

  • 2019 Hyundai Nexo, Topanga Canyon, CA, Oct 2018

    Pretty much any story on a new vehicle these days notes that new-car buyers are snapping up utility vehicles, while traditional sedans languish on sales lots. That puts Hyundai right on trend with its latest hydrogen-powered entry, the Nexo, which it dubs a crossover utility vehicle. It succeeds the earlier Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell, also a crossover, of which roughly 200 were leased in Southern California over three years. The Nexo gives Hyundai a pair of distinctions: It’s the only hydrogen-powered utility on the market, and its EPA-rated range comes in at 380 miles combined from the...
