Hyundai decided to use a lithium-ion polymer battery pack for the all-new KONA Electric instead of conventional nickel-metal hybrid batteries. This provides lower memory sensitivity and excellent charge and discharge efficiency, along with outstanding maximum output. A newly developed Battery Thermal Management system in KONA Electric enables higher battery efficiency and higher lifetime. It is water cooled through the connection to the A/C system and heated by an electric heating element.
