With CO2 emissions of 114-123g/km depending on trim level (the Premium and Premium SE models get larger, less economical wheels), the Kona Hybrid attracts a Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) company-car tax rating of 25% during the 2020/21 financial year. This means 20% taxpayers will see annual bills starting from £1,147, for a Kona Hybrid SE.

Hyundai Kona Hybrid insurance group

Insurance groups for the Kona Hybrid run from 11 to 13, which is only slightly more than the petrol version of the Kona, which is to be expected given the hybrid's higher list price.


The Hyundai Kona Hybrid is sold with a five-year/unlimited-mileage warranty. 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 rather good.


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 £140, which represents a £10 saving on the non-hybrid rate of £150.
