I am hearing mixed things about what you get with the car. Has anyone bought one in the UK recently that can confirm if you get the mats with the car or not please?

If you don't, is the current facelift model the same fit as the previous Kona EV? I'm looking online and can only see them available for the original model. If I can, I would like to avoid giving the dealer £55 extra which appears to be their price, assuming they aren't included.

They're not included as standard but some dealers may throw them in as a freebie. Best just ask your dealer if they include them.
I bought through click-to-buy so the dealer didn't really much involvement. I then got some mats off the internet (vehiclematsuk) which were cheaper than the official ones even after I added on heavier material and coloured flashing round the edge.

Note that the site I used has Kona electric mats for 2018-2020 which I think would fit my 2020 car and separately 2020-present. I think these are the ones you want:

Looking at the index page on the site I mentioned is interesting. The image they have showing the shape of the mats it looks like only the rear mats are a different shape for the new model. So far as I can tell the front mats are the same shape. You can clearly see the petrol model is a different shape for the front.

I hand't asked, and assumed it was -- finding out the hard way.

At pickup there was a panel gap that was so obvious they got the Servicing Manager to estimate fix time and when I said loudly that I was disappointed it hadn't been picked up at PDI, the handover chap quickly offered to grab some mats as a gesture of goodwill.
This was after I'd asked if the boot lid was adjusted to stop mis-closing, was told it was, and then the handover chap took 3 goes to shut it ......

I didn't get mats with mine, so as it is a lease I bought the cheapest I could find off ebay, but they still seem decent quality and a good fit.


Another problem I've found is the lack of storage for small stuff like pens, coins etc. so I've ordered one of these too


EDIT - don't buy that ^ it doesn't fit.

BTW - did anyone else find a pair of blue-tinted sunglasses in the glasses holder, or did they belong to the guy who delivered it?

Hi 80698

What 's the quality like ? Are they anything like the originals that should have come with the car ?
I don't have the originals to compare them to, but they seem absolutely fine. They don't have a cheap feel to them, they clip into place properly on the driver side and the fit is perfect. So far no signs of the edges curling up or anything either.

The original Hyundai ones would have to be amazing in comparison to justify the price difference, but I can't really fault these cheaper ones I bought here.
