Hyundai makes things convenient for Kona Electric owners


To make electric car ownership easier, Hyundai has taken up a couple of initiatives. One of them includes providing a 7.2 kW AC adapter to all Kona customers and installing the same in 15 dealerships across 11 cities.

Apart from the above, the Korean carmaker has also introduced a vehicle to vehicle (V2V) charging facility in Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore and Chennai via Allianz Worldwide Partners. Additionally, Portable Chargers are also available (through roadside Assistance on Allianz Trucks) at Delhi and Bengaluru.

The Kona Electric uses a 39.2 kWh battery that powers an electric motor that has an output of 134 BHP and 395 Nm. Hyundai claims that the car can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 9.7 seconds, while the battery is said to offer an ARAI certified range of 452 km on a single charge.

The Hyundai Kona Electric was launched at a price of Rs. 25,30,000 (ex-showroom, India). With reduction in GST, the electric SUV is now available at Rs. 23,71,858.
