Fully Charged! New Hyundai Kona Electric to offer 300-mile range


Hyundai Kona

It’s only March but we are already looking forward to a year packed with new arrivals here at JT Hughes Hyundai.

The latest coming of the Hyundai Kona Electric, which will make its grand entrance at the JT Hughes showroom in Shrewsbury this summer, is certainly up there with the most eagerly anticipated.

We have just received some exciting news on the new model well in advance of the launch.

It has been confirmed that the new Hyundai Kona Electric will lead SUVs into a new era of efficiency with a range of nearly 300 miles from its long range powertrain.

300-mile range

This long range model possesses a battery capacity of 64kWh, while the alternative short range powertrain will offer a 186 mile range from its 39.2kWh battery capacity.

The enhanced range means your new Hyundai Kona Electric will push the boundaries of efficient driving, whether your adventures take you around the Shropshire and Mid Wales region, or the country.

If you were thinking that such an effective battery means that you are destined to spend hours by the charger – it is time to reconsider! That’s because the new Hyundai Kona Electric’s lithium-ion polymer battery only takes 54 minutes to fill up to 80 per cent, using the 100kW direct current (DC) fast charger.

You also have the convenient option of a 7.2kW on-board alternating current (AC) charger, which is able to charge up the vehicle’s short and long range battery packs in a matter of hours.

While the mammoth range possessed by the pioneering battery-electric SUV can steal the headlines, we have lots more to tell you about the new Kona Electric.

Another triumph of efficiency is the adjustable regenerative braking system, which allows the driver to use paddle shifts behind the steering wheel to tweak the intensity of the brakes, while recuperating any additional energy which is available.

Inside the new Kona Electric you will discover a seven-inch supervision cluster displaying key information on driving performance, while a head-up display gives drivers the advantage of relevant information which is in their line of sight.

Pity no-one has replied to Keith Alexander. It's a question we'll all want to know. Of course, if it can tow it will reduce the mileage range, but, that won't usually be an issue.

300 Miles is very optimistic. I suggest you wait for some real world road test figures rather than risk disappointing people. 200 in the winter to 250 in summer is probably more realistic. 100KW chargers do not exist in the UK yet unfortunately, however approx 1 hour to 80% on the handful of existing rapid Charges in Shropshire is achievable already. Will the Kona EV have the ability to tow a small trailer?
