The Hyundai Kona was the manufacturer’s first electric offering in India and it was received fairly well by the populace. The Kona Electric is an all-electric variant that offers all the conveniences of a regular combustion-engine car without the emissions. On June 30, the Kona reached 103,719 units in sales – just over two years since its global launch in March 2018. Hyundai further revealed that the Kona Electric sold more than three-quarters of that figure in markets outside South Korea. Spurred by this success, the manufacturer announced that they are going to make zero-emissions mobility a crucial part of their long-term goal and are planning to sell as many as 560,000 zero-emission cars by 2025.

The Kona Electric is propelled by a 100-kW Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM) that develops 136 hp and a peak torque of 395 Nm. Juice for the motor comes from a 39.2-kWh lithium-polymer battery that charges from zero to 80 per cent in less than an hour.

Would gape at fast cars. Still does but now has a chance to drive some of them. Hates driving in traffic but makes up for with a spot of off-roading or the occasional track outing. Insta: @motoknight
