I figured I'd created a new thread for those of us in non-ZEV states to pool info on when/if the Kona electric will become available. I'll start by sharing my experience in Texas so far: I have spoken to just about every dealer in my metro area, info was limited in early days and many salesman were misinformed or outright lied to me in the interest of making a sale. With a lot of persistence, I was able to get one dealer to reach out to the district manager. His reply: The Kona electric will not be sold outside of ZEV states until Hyundai hits their 2.5% targets there. This sounds suspiciously close to Hyundai's CARB obligations, making the Kona (at least for now) a compliance car. A recent spin through the Kona EV configurator recently added to Hyundai's website only got me a misinformed sales pitch on a gas Kona and hybrids from yet another local dealer. I would love to hear what else anybody has found out, any news you guys?
