Hyundai Electric Kona
to launch in India on July 9, 2019
The Korean carmaker, Hyundai motors did not make much difference in terms of looks of the car. Kona appears to be the same as the standard Kona which sold overseas. It just minused the front grille and there are some changes made to the bumper.
Kona in two versions – Battery packs
The Kona is available in two versions globally, one with a 39kWh battery which gives a range of 300Km and the second version comes with a bigger battery pack of 64kWh and has a range close to 480km.
The company still did not announce whether both the versions will be launch in India.
We can expect that the company will launch the 39kWh battery pack version in India, as bigger the battery pack, better-charging infrastructure required to charge the EV.
EV charging stations
As of now, India is into the stage of installing EV charging stations all over the country, slowly but definitely, it is providing sufficient charging stations to power up the EVs in India.
