Hyundai Kona Electric customers can enjoy a bigger infotainment facility with the introduction of a 10.25-inch touchscreen.
A battery warmer system will also be available on all trims of the Hyundai Kona Electric.
Hyundai Kona Electric gets new updates in the shape of a 10.25-inch touchscreen replacing the existing 8-inch screen for its Navigation System Display. This feature is available on its top-end spec, the Ultimate Grade. This system features Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity.
All the trims including the Limited and Ultimate, get a battery warmer system to prevent long battery charging intervals. This battery warmer can minimize power loss, especially during the winter season. The Hyundai Kona Electric in the US comes with a 64 kWh Li-ion battery pack that tunes with an electric motor.
This electric motor can produce power of 201hp and peak torque of 394Nm. The EPA has rated Hyundai Kona Electric with a driving range of 415km, whereas the MPGe corresponding figures are 108km on highways and 132km in the city for a combined mileage of 120km per charge.
The 2020 Hyundai Kona EV features a Level 2 on-board charging system capable of charging 7.2kW per hour. Thus, the Hyundai Kona EV will charge to the maximum in 9 hours and 35 minutes. The Level 3 charger along with the SAE Combo charging port can recharge the battery up to 80% in 54 minutes.
The South Korea-manufactured Hyundai Kona Electric is available in California and the northeastern and western states in the US.
In India, the Hyundai Kona Electric was the first electric crossover vehicle at the time of its launch on July 2019. The car delivers a mileage of 452km on a single recharge using a 39.2kW Li-ion polymer battery. This vehicle comes with a 2.8kW portable charger to recharge the vehicle entirely in 19 hours. The DC fast charger charges up to 80% in 57 minutes.
Hyundai had set an annual target of the sale of 500 vehicles for the Hyundai Kona Electric, but the response has been excellent with over 300 bookings within two months of its launch.
