With demand for electric vehicles rising in petrol-diesel prices and rising pollution in cities, Hyundai has decided to launch its Kona electric SUV in the Indian market. Already, there has been a lot of debate in the Indian market regarding lack of charging stations, availability of electricity and durability of electric vehicles. However, the government's move toward electric vehicles and the enthusiasm of auto companies to EV is increasing day by day.
Well, we're talking about the Hyundai Kona Electric Vehicle, which the company has launched at a price of Rs 25.30 lakh (ex-showroom). At the Buddha International Circuit in Greater Noida, we took the test drive and what its performance is on the track, today we are going to share in our first drive review. Let us know the full details
Many have made assumptions in the Indian market that the electric vehicle is an electric vehicle, the performance is not very special, but the 32.9 kWh battery at Hyundai Kona is so powerful that it takes only 9.7 seconds to catch a speed of 0 to 100 Kmph. We also ran it on BIC's race track at a speed of up to 160 Kmph on Sport mode, making it India's most powerful and economical electric car.
The motor produces 136 PS of power and 395Nm of torque. The torque is instantly realized as soon as you put the paw on the accelerator. It doesn't include all-wheel-drive technology and we don't even need it here. Even at a speed of 150 Kmph, it offers a fun driving experience. At high speeds, all four of its tyres were sticking during the turning.

If you're also bothered by rising petrol-diesel prices and are looking for a long-range electric car, the Hyundai Kona EV is a better option for you. It gives you plenty of petrol-diesel-like power and a compact SUV. The price in the Indian market is fixed at Rs 25.30 lakh.
