The All-New Kona Electric is the next SUV in Hyundai’s product line-up which links up with the new SUV family appearance while adding the progressive character to the subcompact SUV segment. With this upcoming electric SUV, Hyundai is taking the next major step towards making advanced technology and modern design accessible to everyone.
The All-New Kona Electric features two different powertrain versions, offering customers one of the most powerful electric motors. The long-range battery with 64 kWh battery version provides a driving range of 482 kilometres (WLTP testing, 546 km under NEDC testing), delivering a maximum output of 204 PS / 150 kW. With 395 Nm of immediate torque and an acceleration of 7.6 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h and with a battery capacity of 39.2 kWh, the basic version drives 312 kilometres (WLTP, 345 km under NEDC testing) * on a single charge with the motor delivering 136 PS / 100 kW.
Both powertrain versions deliver 395 Nm of immediate torque, offering the driver of Kona Electric great fun-to-drive, having the full power available from the first second, providing a maximum speed of 167 km/h for the long-range battery, and 155 km/h for the standard-range battery.
The shift-by-wire system enables operation of the car simply by pressing buttons to switch driving modes. It also eliminates the routing space required for housing the mechanical linkages between a normal shifter and the transmission, providing additional storage space in the front of the car.
The fully-electric subcompact SUV made by Hyundai also features an electronic parking brake (EPB) at the command of the driver’s fingertips. Charging the lithium-ion polymer battery up to 80% only takes about 54 minutes using a 100-kW direct current (DC) fast charger. With the 7.2 kW on-board-charger, charging with alternating current (AC) takes 9 hours 35 minutes for the long-range battery pack and 6 hours 10 minutes for the standard-range battery pack. Drivers also have the option of charging their car at a compatible regular household power socket using the ICCB-cable (in-cable control box). The charging port is in the vehicle’s front next to the Hyundai logo.
