    Energy flow.

    Depending on the driving situation, the new KONA Hybrid switches seamlessly between its petrol engine and electric motor, sometimes using both. The regenerative braking system charges the battery by using the electric motor to slow the car. The energy stored in the battery then powers the electric motor to help in acceleration, uphill driving and low speed driving. This complex energy flow is illustrated in these animations.

      Start/ Low Speed.

      When starting or driving at low speed, the electricity stored in the battery powers the electric motor to accelerate the KONA Hybrid.

      Deceleration/Downhill.

      The regenerative braking system charges the battery by using the electric motor to slow the car. When decelerating or driving downhill, the energy generated is stored in the battery.

      Regenerative Braking.

      When decelerating (e.g. through braking or when driving downhill) the electric motor operates as a generator and regenerates kinetic energy into electric energy, which is then stored in the battery.

    Saving fuel and lowering emissions: ECO-DAS.

    Excellent fuel efficiency and low CO2 emissions are supported by the ECO Driving Assistant System (ECO-DAS). When a route is entered into the navigation system, this predictive energy management system analyses it, tapping into topography data to set an optimal mix of battery power and petrol. The Coasting Guide also informs the driver when a driving situation demanding deceleration is imminent to reduce fuel consumption.
