Hyundai's Kona Electric subcompact SUV provides 250 miles of estimated range and will arrive in the U.S. market in the fourth quarter, the Korean automaker announced today at the New York International Auto Show.

The Kona Electric, which will be built in Ulsan, South Korea, will initially be available in California and later in the nine additional states that have adopted California's zero-emissions vehicle plan. Those would include Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

The Kona Electric's powertrain includes a 150-kilowatt electric motor that produces 201 horsepower and 291 pound-feet of torque. A 64-kilowatt-per-hour lithium-ion battery pack feeds that motor.

Hyundai will offer a driver-assistance package as optional equipment called Hyundai Smart Sense (HSS) that includes forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, driver attention warning, lane keeping assist, blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic collision avoidance assist, and high beam assist.

A standard floating touchscreen will connect a smartphone to Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.
