The car comes with an ECO-Driving Assist System (ECO-DAS). It gets a Coasting Guide that works with the navigation system to notify the driver of imminent deceleration. It works between 40 km/h and 160 km/h and aims to reduce fuel consumption and brake usage. ECO-DAS is also equipped with Predictive Energy Management, which manages charging and discharging of the battery in uphill and downhill conditions.

Re: Europe: Hyundai Kona Hybrid unveiled

Is this not a better car for India? It has a petrol motor and a battery for creeping up on unsuspecting drivers! I wonder what they will price it at if this ends up here.
Will they provide that plastic and metal contraption passing for a e-scooter with this version of Kona as well?
