AutoComplete: Hyundai Kona Electric's pricing is here and it's good
Here's what's making news on Road Show.
Hey, it's no secret that we love the Hyundai Kona Electric.
I mean, it's practical super fun to drive, weird looking in a charming and not at all off-putting way.
We've really only been fuzzy on the price.
We've had a decent idea of how much it was going to cost for a little while now, but Hyundai has finally released the official numbers.
And they're awesome.
Try under 36 grand for the base model and around 45 grand for the fully loaded variant.
And that's before any tax incentives, nice.
When Nissan's Leaf E+ made it's debut at CES earlier this month, we had some mixed feelings about it.
It got much needed power and a range boost over the standard Leaf, but we worried that it might not be enough to keep up with all this hot new competition.
Now we're finding out that the Leaf E-Plus loses maximum range by as much as 25 miles if you pile on the options.
That's not uncommon, but it does leave us with even more doubt as to the Leaf E-Plus' potential for success.
Subaru recently shut down an.
On it's Japanese production lines due to a defect with it's wheel's power steering systems.
The shutdown only lasted 12 days though, and while that's a big upset for a relatively small company like Subaru, the factories are up and running again.
And we shouldn't notice any kind of blip here in the US.
The power steering defect did not affect vehicles built in the brand's Indiana plant.
But it's estimated that some 10,000 Crosstrek and Forrester models may have been effected worldwide.

We'll talk to you tomorrow.
