With CO2 emissions of 112-115g/km depending on trim level (the Premium and Ultimate models get larger, less economical wheels), the Kona Hybrid attracts a Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) company-car tax starting at 26% during the 2021/22 financial year. This means 20% taxpayers will see annual bills starting from £1,224 for a Kona Hybrid SE Connect.

Hyundai Kona Hybrid insurance group

Insurance groups for the Kona Hybrid run from 8-9, which is only slightly more than the petrol version of the Kona. This is to be expected given the hybrid's slightly higher list price.


The Kona Hybrid is sold with a five-year/unlimited-mileage warranty, like every other car from the South Korean brand. This isn’t quite as impressive as the seven-year/100,000-mile deal that’s offered with the Kia Niro, but it’s still pretty good, especially for higher-mileage drivers.


Hyundai recommends servicing the Kona Hybrid every year or 10,000 miles, whichever comes first.

Road tax

As a hybrid, the Kona Hybrid is classified as an ‘alternatively fuelled vehicle’ and so qualifies for a small Vehicle Excise Duty (VED, also called road tax) discount. The annual bill is £145, which represents a £10 saving on the non-hybrid rate of £155.
