Why You Should Lease The New 2022 Hyundai Kona EV

The Hyundai Kona EV retains everything we like about the gas-powered variant and adds a 201-hp electric motor instead of the four-cylinder engine, sharper looks, and a grilleless front fascia. For shoppers looking to lease an all-electric SUV, the 2022 Hyundai Kona lease deal proves that you don’t have to splash so much money to get a quality EV crossover with a long-range.

And for the 2022 model year, the all-electric variant of the small Kona gets some fresh styling upgrades to help keep it going against the coming stiff competition for other new mainstream EVs.

Hyundai has given the 2022 Kona a more refined look—a new front and rear fascia and new wheel designs. On the inside, the new Kona gets a revised design and a larger 10.3-inch digital gauge display as standard. The 2022 Kona EV now has only two options, the base SEL, and the Limited models.

Engine And Performance

And just like its outgoing model, the new Kona EV comes with an electric motor that pairs with a 64-kWh lithium-ion battery to deliver 201 hp and 291 lb-ft of torque to the front wheels. There’s no all-wheel drive in the 2022 Kona, and like most EVs, it uses a single-speed automatic transmission.

With 201 horsepower and 291 lb-ft of torque, the Kona EV is significantly faster than its gas-powered variant. And though this subcompact SUV EV lacks the sports-car thrills, it surely delivers entertaining driving dynamics. It is fun to drive, eager handling, and effortlessly cruises on the highway.

Charging And Driving Range

According to the EPA, the 2022 Kona EV can deliver an estimated 258 miles of range and 120 miles per gallon of gasoline equivalent (MPGe) combined. This means that the Kona Electric is fabulous not only for daily commuting but also for weekend adventures.

Hyundai believes that it takes about nine hours to fully charge its completely depleted battery with its 7.2-kW onboard charger. However, using a public charging station can give you up to 80% charge in just 47 minutes.


The inside of the 2022 Kona EV is picture-perfect of its gas-powered variant. It affords premium materials, a comfortable cabin, and a long list of intuitive features, just like the regular Kona. The SEL and the Limited models sport a touchscreen infotainment system featuring wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. However, while the SEL models boast an 8.0-inch touchscreen, the Limited models come standard with a 10.3-inch display that features navigation. The cargo area of the 2022 Kona EV is also similar to the regular Kona. This new Kona electric comes with an average rear and cargo space.


Hyundai packs some interesting standard driver assists features and a wide range of optional safety features in the new Kona EV. Some of the standard features include,

  • Automated emergency braking
  • Forward-collision warning
  • Lane-departure warning
  • Lane-keeping assist

The refreshed 2022 Hyundai Kona offers what every shopper loves in the regular Kona and adds an all-electric twist, making it a much desirable small crossover EV to lease. To get the most outstanding lease rates, reach out to VIP Auto, 1204 Hylan Blvd, Staten Island, NY 10305

Review From Ashley Smith: This was my first experience using a leasing company. In the past, I leased my cars directly through the dealership and always felt that I didn’t receive a fair price. I had such a pleasant experience with VIP Auto Lease from the first time I called to when my car was delivered. Michael Jeffries was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive and able to get me a great deal. He made the leasing process smooth and easy. I was so impressed there were no hidden fees and that the car was delivered right to my house! I will definitely use VIP Auto Lease again in the future! Thank you again!
