Hyundai Kona updated and got charging with smartphone control
Hyundai unveiled upgraded Kona electric crossover.
Hyundai has unveiled the updated Kona compact electric crossover, which debuted following the standard petrol version of the model. The car has changed significantly in appearance, and also received a number of new technologies, including a charging system controlled by a smartphone.
The crossover can be distinguished from its predecessor thanks to a modified front end with a new lower bumper section, narrowed optics, LED daytime running lights, body-colored wheel arches, and air ducts of a different shape.
In the cabin, a virtual dashboard increased from 7 to 10.25 inches and a multimedia touchscreen display of the same diagonal appeared. The infotainment complex supports wireless integration with mobile devices, as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto interfaces.
A number of vehicle functions can be controlled using a special BlueLink mobile app. For example, you can use the program to track the battery charge level, as well as plan the start and end times for replenishing the energy level.
The technical component of the Hyundai Kona has not been changed. The standard crossover is equipped with a 136-horsepower electric motor and 39.1 kWh batteries, which allow you to travel 305 kilometers without recharging. The "older" modification of the car is equipped with a 204-horsepower engine and batteries with a capacity of 64 kWh, providing a power reserve of 484 kilometers.
In Europe, South Korea, and some other markets, sales of the updated Hyundai Kona electric car will begin in a few months.
