More specifically: Canadian race cars. I’ve been following Sasha Anis since his time in the Canadian Touring Car Championship, and have been rooting for both his Tesla-oriented Mountain Pass Performance business (scoring Tesla’s first-ever racing win) and his Nissan 350Z race car build, ‘Kels’.
Mind you, progress on the Z has taken a while…but this project has aged like a fine wine.
Substantially larger—150mm longer (5.9 in), 25mm (0.98 in) wider, with a 60mm (2.3 in) longer wheelbase, Hyundai’s latest segment-stealing design drops with the new KONA.
Do other car manufacturers sit back and let Hyundai steal even more market share? It’s clear that—one by one—the ‘IONIQifation’ of this marque has only attracted more customers and positive reactions worldwide. Now, it’s the Kona compact crossover’s turn to shine.
There’s not a lot to go on that you can’t glean from the pictures, but know that Hyundai is smartly promising that the car will be available in EV, ICE, Hybrid, and N-Line trims—offering something for everyone.
Pricing, availability, and other details aren’t available yet. So commit this new shape to memory, and if you’re in the market…start saving for a Kona that’ll likely command a larger price.
