Hyundai Kona Electric (2021): a new range record

The Hyundai Kona Electric has set a new range record, covering a distance of 790 km on a single charge.

The Hyundai Kona Electric, with a fully charged 64 kWh battery, managed to run 790 km on a single charge, or 130 km more than the approved autonomy of 660 km in the urban cycle. The average energy consumption recorded is 8.2 kWh/100 km, which is much less than the 14.7 kWh / 100 km approved according to the WLTP cycle.

To achieve this record, the teams of the Spanish newspaper The country crisscrossed the streets of Madrid with Hyundai’s small urban SUV for 15 hours and 17 minutes, under normal traffic conditions, and have traveled a total distance of 790 km, at an average speed of 52.19 km / h.

Hyundai Kona Electric (2021): sufficient autonomy for everyday life

The test drive began at the Automotive Research Center of the Polytechnic University of Madrid (INSIA), which sealed the car’s charging hatch and was responsible for certifying the range measured by this test. The Hyundai Kona Electric then set off on the Madrid ring road, with a team of three drivers who took turns at the wheel to determine its maximum range.

The Hyundai Kona Electric used for this exercise has not undergone any modification: it is equipped with all the equipment available, and its 204 horsepower engine associated with a 64 kWh battery.

“This new record demonstrates that Kona Electric, our 100% electric eco-friendly SUV, exceeds our expectations on a daily basis. It testifies to Hyundai’s leadership in the field of electromobility, and proves that autonomy should no longer be an obstacle to the purchase of a BEV. “ explains Andreas-Christoph Hofmann, Vice-President Marketing & Product at Hyundai Motor Europe.
