What is better than owning India’s first all-electric SUV with all the bells and whistles? Hyundai Kona Electric is a unique all-electric vehicle with a spectacular design and style. It is the first Hyundai vehicle to ever be produced without a cascading grille since an electric vehicle does not require air to cool the engine. This unique design change has made it a one-of-a-kind vehicle with a strong silhouette and sharp lines.
Here are five things one needs to know about the Kona Electric:
1. Charging options:
First, Hyundai provides three charging options to ensure you never run out of battery power in your all-electric SUV. It includes an AC wall box charger, a portable charger, and a DC quick charger. The 7.2 kW AC Wall Box Charger takes approximately 6 hours and 10 minutes to fully charge the battery, whereas the 2.8 kW portable charger takes approximately 19 hours. The third option is the DC Quick Charger CCS Type 2 50 kW KONA Electric, which only takes about an hour to charge your vehicle to 80% capacity.
2. Battery, power and acceleration:
Secondly, the country’s first all-electric SUV comes equipped with an unparalleled lithium-ion polymer battery in order to enhance vehicle performance. Its powertrain consists of a 39.2kWh battery pack coupled to an electric motor with a power output of 136PS and a torque of 40.27kgm. Being an electric vehicle does not compromise the Kona Electric’s mileage in any way. Kona it comes with an ARAI-tested mileage of 452 km on a single full charge. Did you know that with the Kona Electric you can accelerate from 0 to 100kmph in just 9.7 seconds?
3. Drive modes:
Thirdly, Kona Electric has a unique method to modulate the power released by the motor using its different driving modes. Each mode ensures that your vehicle remains at peak performance when you drive. It includes the ECO, COMFORT and SPORT mode. The ECO mode is perfect for long drives since it saves as much battery as possible. The COMFORT mode is perfect for everyday driving since it provides a relaxed throttle response. The SPORT mode, on the other hand, is for adventures since it increases the throttle response as well as driver engagement.
Next, Hyundai does not compromise on passenger safety meaning the Kona Electric is equipped with some of the best safety features in the industry. It includes the Virtual Engine Sound System (VESS), Six Airbags, Immobilizer, Rear Defogger with timer, Seat Belt Pretensioners for both passengers & drivers, ISOFIX, Central locking and many more.
5. Variants and colours:
Lastly, Hyundai Kona Electric is just like any other SUV when it comes to customization since it is offered in two different variants namely the Hyundai Kona Electric Premium and Hyundai Kona Electric Premium Dual Tone.
