Looks like model 3 still it (price won't be much different?). I saw Kona (explosive version) on the road, amazingly, similar size with leaf. How on earth they fit that much battery?

I think the Kona can fit that much battery because the Leaf wasn't really trying...

It's not that simple.

NZ does not have a free trade agreement with SK. Add to that the market is much smaller that AU.

Jump onto the Hyundai NZ page and compare pricing to the locally delivered models. You will get a sense of the scale.

Example: in Au 2018 Hyundai Accent Sport $18990AUD. The same car in NZ is $31990NZD.

The Renault Zoe sold in NZ was early 70's as well. That car is $50k here.

We have it on good authority it will be $50k here when it arrives in Feb next year. I'm waiting patiently.. :-)

It is that simple, I didn't say the Kona would be $67,000 in Australia, I just posted what the NZ price is in Australian dollars, in case other people were interested. That is what it would cost in Australian dollars if you go to New Zealand and buy one. At the moment you can't buy one in Australia.

People on this forum will be interested in AU pricing.
