Hyundai's new Kona Electric to boast 470 km of battery range

Hyundai's new Kona Electric to boast 470 km of battery range

The Kona Electric will be showcased at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show, where more details on its global availability will be revealed as well. Maximum range of the basic version is estimated at 300 km, while the long-range model can go for 470 km on a single charge, according to Hyundai's literature. The base Kona Electric comes with a 39.2-kwh battery good for a promised 186 miles of range.

The Kona Electric's batteries will charge to 80% in 54 minutes via a 100kW DC fast-charger, while using the 7.2kW on-board charger and an AC supply will take nine hours and 40 minutes for the larger battery, or six hours and 10 minutes for the smaller.

If you're anxious the battery pack will eat into the available room inside, Hyundai mentions the Kona's all-new platform has allowed the engineers to neatly integrate the battery packs without having a negative impact on cabin space.

Hyundai has unveiled its pure-electric Kona EV overnight, with up to 150kW of power and a 470km range. There's also dedicated 17-inch alloy wheels featuring an aero-like design. This zero emission powertrain churns out 158 bhp of peak power and 395 Nm of peak torque.

In addition to the electrified powertrain, Hyundai will offer a host of technology features in the Kona Electric.

Although it's been tweaked compared to the regular Kona, the EV doesn't look like a science project.

The 150-kW motor in the long-range trim shaves about two seconds off that acceleration time, and comes with a 64-kWh battery pack.

The adjustable regenerative braking system allows the driver to adjust the intensity of the regenerative braking by using the steering paddle shifters. It is also taller by 20mm and longer by 15mm than the petrol-powered Kona.

Visually, there's little to show that you're driving the electric version of the Kona, as the auto is the same shape and fundamentally the same design as the conventional equivalent. A new dedicated center console hosts all the buttons for the operation of the vehicle along with the shift-by-wire gear control, creating at the same time an extra storage space underneath it.

The additional offering in the Kona range follows the launch in 2016 of the firm's eco-friendly Ioniq family vehicle range, which comes in three guises: hybrid, plug-in electric of full electric.

Standard features like forward collision avoidance, blind spot warning, lane keeping assist, rear cross-traffic alert and more will be included.
