Hyundai Group is taking the lead among legacy carmakers across the globe when it comes to transitioning to electric mobility.
Here are the upcoming Hyundai electric cars in the USA in 2023. Hyundai has transformed itself immensely in the last few years to emerge as one of the top electric mobility players among legacy carmakers around the globe. While the overall EV revolution must be attributed to Tesla and more recently, BYD, Hyundai Motor Group has pivoted its operations quite quickly to launch EV after EV across the globe. Its IONIQ 5 bagged tons of prestigious awards on the global stage. That is what makes us excited about the new EVs coming from the Korean carmaker’s camp next.

Upcoming Hyundai Electric Cars in USA
First on the list is the popular Kona electric which, in essence, started the EV revolution for Hyundai. Note that Kona is offered as an ICE-powered SUV for a long time. But the Korean auto giant converted it to an electric version a few years ago. That is a common practice that a lot of carmakers adopt while starting the EV journey. That is why we have had tons of facelifts and updates with the Kona. For 2023, it is bound to be launched again with a few enhancements. Firstly, the DC fast charging will allow the battery to get juiced up from 10-80% in just 41 mins with the long-range battery pack. The estimated costs will be in the $24,000 to $38,000 window.
