We are proud to support New Zealand rally driver, Hayden Paddon, and the wider motorsport community.

The world's first Kona EV rally car

Last year we worked with Hayden and the Paddon Rallysport team to develop the world's first Kona EV rally car. 

Kiwi rally star Hayden led the project to develop the 400+ kW electric-powered rally car, a project sparked by an idea early in 2018 and officially commenced in March 2019.

Following 18 months of intensive work at his Cromwell facility, Paddon and his six-strong team of engineers and designers are delighted to reveal the completed, fully functional Hyundai Kona EV rally car to the world.
