Exterior - 2019 Hyundai Kona EV

The exterior of the new Kona EV has a sophisticated look. It has sweeping curves in all the right places. Not only do they look great and provide the crossover with a more modern appearance, but they can also help to reduce wind resistance on the road. On the front of the electric crossover, you'll find a faux grille. Etched patterns give off the illusion of a traditional grille. They're also hiding a secret. Part of the grille portion flips open to reveal the charging port. Thin and angular lights complement the front-end. The Kona EV will be available in three trim levels. These include the SEL, Limited, and Ultimate. Limited builds have LED headlights, a powered sunroof, and turn signal lights on the side mirrors. Ultimate configurations have the addition of rain-sensing windshield wipers. For more information about the exterior features of the Kona EV, contact us now.

Interior - 2019 Hyundai Kona EV

The cabin of the Kona EV is sleek and futuristic. The unique thing about this future EV model is that it was planned long before the release of the gas-powered Kona. As a result, nothing was compromised in the EV model's interior. Hyundai didn't have to make any extra room for electrical or powertrain components. It has the same dimensions and space as the gasoline models. The main differences are in the technology and styling. On the center dash, you'll find a tablet-style infotainment screen. The 8-inch touch screen display is very responsive and features a number of built-in applications. It's also compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Another noticeable difference is the center console. Instead of a traditional shift knob, the Kona EV has sleek buttons that control the powertrain. The console is also installed higher up to put all the controls within reach. Check out our Boulder Review or visit our dealership today for more information about the Kona EV cabin.

Mechanical - Hyundai Kona EV specs in Boulder

While the 2019 Hyundai Kona EV has a very similar build to its gasoline-powered counterpart, there are a few subtle changes. One of the biggest is that the EV sits almost an inch lower to the ground. It has about 6.2 inches of ground clearance. This lowers the vehicle's center of gravity, resulting in better handling. With its responsive steering system, the Kona EV can dominate winding roads without any issues. It also has an automatic traction control system that will provide additional stability whenever it's needed. Want to learn more about the mechanical features of the new Kona EV?

No Boulder review is complete without some information about the powertrain. Powering the Kona EV is a permanent-magnet synchronous AC motor. It works alongside a 64.0-kWh lithium-ion battery pack. It also has a regenerative braking system. This system will charge the batteries each time you use the brakes, ultimately increasing your range. The Kona EV has five different regenerative braking modes. You can easily select the mode that is right for your driving habits within the digital instrument cluster. In total, the motor can produce up to 201 horsepower and 290 pound-foot of torque. When you're at home, charging the EV is as simple as plugging it in. Every model has a 7.2-kW charger.

Safety - 2019 Hyundai Kona EV dealer

To complement all of that great technology under the hood, the Kona EV is going to be available with some advanced safety features. Some of those features include Smart Cruise Control, Forward-Collision Avoidance Assist, and Lane-Keeping Assist. All of these features are great for long drives on the highway. The Lane-Keeping Assist feature uses the vehicle's collection of sensors and cameras to monitor the road markings. If you start to veer into the next lane, the Kona EV will let you know. Forward-Collision Avoidance Assist works similarly. However, it monitors the road ahead and looks out for potential collisions. When a collision is imminent, the vehicle will provide visual and audible alerts. It may also apply automatic braking power to avoid an accident. The Smart Cruise Control system uses the same monitoring technology. It keeps track of your surroundings so that you can keep up with the flow of traffic. When the feature is initiated, the Kona EV will automatically slow down, speed up, or come to a complete stop during your commute.

2019 is shaping up to be an exciting year for those looking to invest in an EV. The 2019 Hyundai Kona EV is packed with a lot of great technology that can keep you safe, informed, and entertained on your drive.
