Hyundai has discharged a secretive first mystery picture of the Kona Electric, the brand’s second all-electric vehicle to be sold in the United States (after the Ioniq) and one that could offer a more extended territory than the Chevrolet Bolt EV’s EPA-evaluated 238 miles. In an European public statement in front of the Geneva car expo—where the Kona EV will make its introduction—Hyundai claims that the Kona Electric will accomplish a scope of 292 miles under the new European World Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP); from this, we wouldn’t be amazed to see the model procure a U.S. EPA scope of no less than 240 miles. The Kona Electric will come in two distinctive powertrain forms in the Europe advertise, Hyundai says. That probably implies two battery limits, with the more noteworthy around 60 kW or more—we stay cheerful for an all-wheel-drive adaptation.
Hope to see quick charging on the Kona Electric, as well. Hyundai says its Hyundai Ioniq Electric is as of now the main vehicle accessible in North America that can charge at 100 kW on a portion of the best Combined Charging System (CCS) equipment that is evaluated to 100 kW or more.
The Kona Electric is expected to arrive recently in the United States and is probably going to arrive at a generally reasonable value that parallels the technique the brand is following with gas fueled Kona, which begins at under $21,000. The Kona Electric will point generally at bring down estimated, completely electric hybrid opponents originating from Ford, Nissan, Volvo, and Volkswagen, which are all normal to bow around 2020 or in a matter of seconds prior. All are probably going to begin under $40,000 before considering in the $7500 government EV assess credit and different impetuses.
