VIDEO: Hyundai Kona Electric walk around

The annual Geneva Motorshow is in full swing and the number of electric cars on display is growing each year. The latest edition is the Hyundai Kona Electric.

The new Kona Electric combines the two fastest growing automotive trends – electrification and a SUV body style and carries the same distinctive design and functionality of the regular Kona.
