In March this year, Cosentino bought the Kona EV. However, there are also conflicting reports about whether Hyundai Kona was plugged in, the cause of the incident has not yet been determined. According to Automotive News Canada, Hyundai Canada spokesman Jean-Francois Taylor said, "We are really in touch with the customer.

Your information is to tell that the cause of the fire at Hyundai Kona Electric is a global news and the fact that new electric cars exist worldwide. An electric vehicle that catches fires is as common as a fire in an Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicle. And it is true that fossil-fueled cars have reported the highest incidence of fire than electric vehicles at the world level.
