    Ride and handling enhancements.

    The new Kona has undergone tuning updates for a smoother ride. The springs, dampers, and stabilizer bars were modified for better ride comfort and isolation.

    The 48V mild hybrid system.

    Save fuel and reduce emissions with the optional 48-volt mild hybrid system. It supports the combustion engine with additional torque during acceleration – depending on the battery’s state of charge and the degree of acceleration. As a result, the powertrain’s fuel economy and CO2 emissions are improved. You can discover more about how the system works in various driving situations below.

      Comfort Start.

      The mild hybrid system is particularly useful in city traffic, with the Mild Hybrid Starter Generator (MHSG) supporting the combustion engine when re-starting after traffic stops. It supports a faster and smoother engine start with supplemental torque, drawing on energy from the 48V battery.

      Acceleration.

      Under acceleration, the starter generator supports the engine with additional power, depending on the battery system’s charge and the driver's accelerator input. Once the required speed is reached, the system shifts to neutral mode, delivering no power. As a result, CO2 emissions and fuel consumption can be reduced.

      Recuperation.

      In active braking or overrun phases, the rotating crankshaft powers the starter generator, which then recuperates a maximum output of 10 to 12 kW. The generator converts the kinetic braking energy into electricity and feeds it back into the 48V battery.
