2019 Hyundai Kona Electric is unique since it is an eco-friendly car. It fully depends on its battery pack to power electrical components and to drive the electric motor which moves the vehicle. The 2019 Kona Electric boasts an aerodynamic shape that reduces air resistance and wide wheels to improve stability.
The 2019 Kona Electric has a slim design to reduce air resistance when moving. The bumpers and bonnet are shaped aerodynamically to increase its speed. The body of the vehicle is lowered to the ground and the wheels are wide apart to improve stability. This vehicle has a sunroof and LED headlights to minimize power consumption and provide better lighting.
The interior of the vehicle features a power-adjustable driver’s seat, a navigation system, premium audio, cellphone charging, 8.0-inch touchscreen, and more. The seats allow up to four adults to sit comfortably. Furthermore, seats are made of leather to maximize passengers’ comfort. When the rear seats are up, this car can carry up to 19.2 cubic feet of cargo. However, the cargo capacity increases to 45.8 cubic feet if you fold the rear seats.
When it comes to safety, this vehicle has seatbelts and airbags for protecting the driver and the front passenger in case of an accident. It also comes with an automatic emergency braking system which enables you to stop the vehicle within the shortest time possible. The 2019 Hyundai Kona Electric has smart parking sensors with an audio feature and a rearview camera that enables you to have a clear view of what is behind you, while the collision detection system notifies you when you are too close. This prevents accidents and gives you confidence when parking since you are aware of the distance of the object. This vehicle has a suspension mechanism for each wheel in order to provide a comfortable ride, especially on rough roads.
This vehicle is most suitable for green-minded people since it offers emission-free propulsion. It relies entirely on the inbuilt 64-kWh rechargeable lithium-ion battery. The battery provides a driving range of up to 250 miles when fully charged. To maximize stability, the battery pack has been placed underneath the floor of the vehicle. This lowers the center of gravity of the entire vehicle and it doesn’t intrude the cargo space. The 150-kilowatt motor drives the front wheels only so that it can save energy but saving energy doesn’t mean that it has to be weak; the battery can propel the car uphill and on rough terrains with ease.
The 2019 Hyundai Kona Electric also has an 8-inch touchscreen that enables you to navigate. You can control features of the vehicle by using the Blue Link app; the app is available for android and Apple operating systems.
The car batteries have been designed with advanced lithium-ion technology to maximize the battery capacity and durability. This vehicle uses a Level 3 charger, which enables recharge in about an hour. This charger is faster than Level 2 chargers, which takes nearly 10 hours to recharge the same battery. This means that you can charge the vehicle in a charging station and continue with your journey on the same day.
