KONA EV estimated range is 400+ kilometers
Hyundai has launched the KONA EV in Canada, opening orders for this highly-anticipated electric vehicle. The KONA EV is a compact crossover with an estimated range of 415 kilometers. In turn, this impressive range makes the KONA EV a realistic option for many drivers in the Kootenays.
The Kona EV enters two of the fastest-growing segments in the automotive industry: subcompact SUVs and electric vehicles. With its ground clearance, additional storage capacity and available technology, the KONA EV is already garnering hundreds of orders across Canada -- and praise from automotive industry critics. For example, the KONA EV was just selected as the 2019 North American Utility Vehicle of the year.

Local drivers will also appreciate a standard heat-pump system with an inner condenser that re-uses waste heat from the air conditioning system and a battery temperature management system, which helps reduce the loss of range during cold winters. KONA EV also includes an EV charger.
An available eight-inch head-up display projects important information such as speed, navigation commands and safety warnings, all within the driver's line of sight. It also features a standard seven-inch or an available eight-inch touch-screen display with a built-in navigation system and both are equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smart-phone integration.
KONA Electric also features an array of Hyundai SmartSense safety technologies: Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection; Blind-spot Collision Warning with Lane-Change Assist; Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning, Lane-Departure Warning with Lane-Keeping Assist; Adaptive Cruise Control with "stop-and-go" capability; and, many more important systems to keep you and your family safe.
