According to a media report by Hyundai, 120 Kona SUVs have been booked in just 10-days of launch. These figures tell us that there's a demand for EVs in India although the infrastructure can't support EVs as of now. 


The Kona Electric is Hyundai's first all-electric vehicle for the Indian market. It is priced at Rs. 25.30 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).


The Kona Electric uses a 39.2 kWh battery that powers an electric motor that has an output of 134 BHP and 395 Nm. The car comes with four driving modes - Eco, Eco+, Comfort and Sport. The driver can adjust the regenerative braking using paddles provided behind the steering wheel.


According to Hyundai, the Kona Electric can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 9.7 seconds. The battery pack is said to offer an ARAI certified range of 452 km on a single charge. It can be recharged to 100% in 6 hours and 10 minutes using an AC charger. It takes 57 minutes to recharge the battery to 80% of its capacity using a DC fast charger.

Wow! That's quite a feat for an EV, especially in the premium segment. On paper, it makes for a great runabout and a second car for luxury car owners.


Still, I'd not call it beautiful or inconspicuous. The styling can be described as quirky at best.


Am half hoping this one works in the long term too!


Cheers!
