Hyundai Motor successfully demonstrated its leadership in electrified mobility as three KONA Electric vehicles set a new range record.
Over the course of a three-day range mission, the pure electric small SUVs each travelled 1,018.7, 1,024.1 and 1,026.0 kilometres, exceeding the goal of 1,000km on a single battery charge. Each distance also represents a record in terms of 64kWh battery capacity, as the power consumption figures of 6.28, 6.25 and 6.24kWh per 100 km were well below the standard value of 14.7kWh per 100km determined by the Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP).
“This mission has proven that our KONA Electric offers outstanding electric performance, efficiency and battery range,” said Michael Cole, President and CEO of Hyundai Motor Europe. “This lifestyle-oriented vehicle will continue to offer customers a range of sophisticated technology and an attractive design of a small SUV in addition to all the advantages of an environmentally friendly electric vehicle.”
