Hyundai’s aboriginal attempt at a authentic electric agent is a complete success. This is an electric car I could alive with on a circadian basis. It has the affection and perceived believability that comes with a cast that has relentlessly formed its way to the top of the archive in these areas.
The Kona is a lot like its gasoline-powered twin, boasting account and added features. Except it is absolutely electric, able with absorbing achievement and able to go added than 400 kilometres on a distinct charge. That cardinal abandoned is abundant to set it afar from cartage like the Chevy Bolt, Nissan Leaf, and Volkswagen’s eGolf.
The Kona shares its platform, autogenous and abundant of the appearance with the “regular” Kona, which has begin its way into added than 13,000 homes during the aboriginal six months of 2019. Nothing has been absent to in the about-face from an agent to a motor. Both accept the aforementioned basement and 544 litres of burden accommodation abaft the aback seat, 1,300 with it bankrupt flat. The electric adaptation is the aboriginal electric bunched account agent in the country and has the greatest government-rated ambit of any aggregate BEV (battery electric vehicle).
The Kona EV comes in two trim levels, Preferred and Ultimate. Both are appealing able-bodied loaded. The interiors are ultra-modern as befits an electric vehicle. They both accept an all-encompassing account of accepted accessories including abutment for both Apple Car Play and Android Auto, acrimonious and cooled advanced seats, heads-up display, LED headlights and navigation. They additionally accept a abounding slate of assurance appearance including: advanced blow abstention with banal detection, lane abandonment admonishing and lane accumulate assist, dark atom blow warning, rear cantankerous cartage alert, advanced and rear esplanade ambit admonishing and automated aerial beams.
Visually, you can acquaint the electric adaptation from the gas accompanying by the abridgement of a barbecue and hardly altered wheels. Inside, you get a different apparatus animate with a ample infotainment awning aloft the centre stack. The beautiful centre animate houses buttons instead of a about-face batten and knob.
The Kona has a able electric motor active the advanced auto through a single-speed transmission. Ability comes from a 64-kWh lithium-ion battery.
Driving the electric Kona is like active the gas-powered Kona, except it is faster. This little account will abscond from blow to 100 km/h in about 7.5 seconds. That’s about two abnormal faster than the gas version. It does this in abreast silence.
Acceleration is absolute because the able electric motor generates best torque, a ample 209 lb.-ft. of torque from rest. Step on it from a stop and it is accessible to breach the advanced tires loose.
Handling is impressive. Because the ample array backpack is beneath the floor, the centre of force is low. The Kona charcoal actual collapsed beneath cornering with actual little roll. The council is alluringly acknowledging and has some backpack with the drive arrangement in action mode.
The Kona shares a accurate ambush with some added electrics and constituent hybrids. A brace of paddles abaft the council caster acquiesce you to access or abatement adorning braking through four levels. When you abolish your bottom from the accelerator, adorning braking captures the calefaction generated by braking, and converts it to activity acclimated to recharge the big capital battery.
Pull on the larboard paddle and you can access adorning braking in stages. Hold it in and the Kona will apathetic to a complete blow afterwards affecting the brakes. It is calmly accessible to drive afterwards affecting the brakes. This fun exercise creates added captivation with and acknowledgment of the system. It additionally increases the range.
Hyundai has addressed best of the negatives attributed to electric vehicles:
Statistics Canada says the boilerplate circadian drive for Canadians is 45-km return. If you fit aural that range, you would alone accept to allegation your Kona already a week.
Even if you had run its array to a about depleted stage, it would be aback to abounding afterwards beneath than 10 hours acquainted into your 240-volt (Level 2) charger. If you should charge a “refill” afore afresh you can add 200 km of ambit afterwards 30 account on a Level 3 accessible charger.
It is accessible to see why Hyundai dealers had to abeyance order-taking until it could ensure acceptable assembly accommodation to amuse demand.
B.C. and Quebec are the alone ambit to currently action EV incentives, up to $5,000 and $8,000 respectively. Hyundai has appropriately slanted availability to those provinces. The contempo accession of a federal abatement of up to $5,000 will acceptable advance to electric Konas actuality in added circulation.
If you are in the bazaar for a new vehicle, abnormally a baby utility, and absorbed in activity green, analysis out the Kona. You may accept to get the banker to adjustment one in because accumulation is so limited.
And it’s pricey, but you’ll never afresh accept to appointment a gas station.
