Media reports on the internet suggest that the powertrain on the upcoming Hyundai Kona electric SUV has been developed by LG chemicals in collaboration with Hyundai. The new Hyundai Kona will be launched in the United States in the second quarter of 2018.

Talking of standard model, the new Hyundai Kona will come in both, petrol and diesel engines. While the petrol engine is good for churning out 147 bhp, the diesel engine is more powerful at 175 bhp. The torque on the petrol and diesel mills account at 179 Nm and 265 Nm respectively. Besides this, there will also be a 1.0-litre diesel engine on offer that produces 118 bhp of power and 172 Nm of torque.
