Explore the Hyundai Kona Electric
Electric cars, also known as EV’s for short, are becoming more and more popular, with a 144% rise in sales based on the previous year. Their environmentally friendly features are appealing to commuters as electric cars can now offer up to 250 miles between charges, an improvement from recent years. There is also a much wider range of electric vehicles on the market, offering more options to those looking to adopt an electric vehicle into their lives.
Owning an electric vehicle comes with a host of benefits:
Electric Vehicle Cost savings
There are a number of savings associated with owning an electric vehicle over a petrol or diesel, noticeably the consumption costs. A typical petrol or diesel vehicle will cost anywhere between £50 and £80 for a full tank, whereas electric vehicles can cost as low as £5 for a full charge.
With an electric vehicle having incredibly low emissions, there is no vehicle tax to pay which can be a significant cost saving if you drive an SUV or similar sized vehicle.
Lastly, electric vehicle engines are made up of fewer components which mean there is less that is likely to go wrong and need repairing or servicing as regularly.
The convenience of being able to charge your vehicle at your own home is advantageous to most electric vehicle owners. Electricity ports can easily be installed and you can even select a specific tariff to accommodate electric vehicle charging.
Hyundai Kona Electric
The Hyundai Kona Electric is a car of no compromise, combining Hyundai’s progressive SUV style and a zero-emission electric powertrain.
It offers the same expressive design as the Hyundai Kona so there is no compromise to be made when switching to the Electric version, but all of the benefits to gain.
The Kona Electric provides passengers a spacious cabin and comfortable, premium interior. With plenty of advanced technology, the Kona offers wireless charging facilities, premium surround sound, climate pre-settings and heat ventilated seats for a truly enjoyable ride for both the driver and passengers.
Suitable for everyday driving, the Kona Electric features a 7 inch infotainment system, with a pop up feature that can project directly into the drivers line of sight, meaning their eyes are constantly on the road.
The integrated touchscreen navigation system (on premium and premium SE models) keeps you on the straight and narrow on those longer journeys.
The Kona Electric also does not compromise on safety features, with Smart Cruise Control, Lane Keep Assist and Blind Spot Collision Warning to provide complete peace of mind when on the open roads.
The Hyundai Kona Electric offers the best driving features of an electric vehicle, from an adjustable regenerative braking system, which allows the driver to adjust the intensity of the regenerative braking by using the paddle shifts behind the steering wheel to being able to bring the vehicle to a complete stop by keeping the left paddle held – without using the brake pedal.
Additionally, the radar sensor alongside the smart regenerative braking system, can monitor traffic ahead and control the braking system to ensure the vehicle comes to a stop in time.
For those who are yet to explore the cost effectiveness of an electric vehicle can be assured that the Hyundai Kona Electric can be charged for as little as £7.50, which for an SUV would provide quite the cost savings against Petrol or Diesel engines. Charging times can depend on the kW, but the Kona can charge to full capacity in as little as 75 minutes (rapid charging). Rapid charging is usually found in public charging ports, rather than residential charging ports.
The Konda Electric can provide up to 278 miles on a full charge, giving you complete peace of mind when making those long journeys.
