Hyundai Kona Electric Car – 450 Kms on a charge – Launching in India Jul 9, 2019


A fully electric car, with a range of 450 Kms, launching in India tomorrow (Jul 9, 2019).

That would be Hyundai Kona, and I reckon it would be the first fully electric car to have such a long range.

The following are what the Hyundai company web site says are the highlights of Kona Electric –

“Highest Electric Driving Range

Convenience to charge anywhere

Packed with Hi-Tech & Premium features

Design optimized for superior aerodynamics

Automatic Transmission for a convenient driving experience

Super Silent”

I guess none of the points listed above, except the first, is anything super unique, but a 450 Km range surely is something to write home about.

It costs a pocket (Rs 25 lakhs before subsidies), so it is not gonna appeal to everyone – but Hyundai is keen to launch a sub-10 lakh electric car, or so says the company.
