  • Lithium-Ion Polymer battery

    Hyundai decided to use a lithium-ion polymer battery pack for the All-New KONA Electric instead of
    conventional nickel-metal hybrid batteries. This provides lower memory sensitivity and excellent
    charge and discharge efficiency, along with outstanding maximum output.
    A newly developed Battery Thermal Management system in KONA Electric enables higher
    battery efficiency and higher lifetime. It is water cooled through the connection to the
    A/C system and heated by an electric heating element. Dring range and battery capacity 312 km / 39 kWh 449 km / 64 kWh


Depending on your grid connection at home or the type of fast charging station you have access to,
KONA Electric offers various possibilities and plug types for charging.

  • Fast charging When using a 100 kW direct current (DC) fast-charger station, KONA Electric’s lithium-ion
    polymer battery only takes about 54 minutes to charge to 80% state of charge (SOC). If
    you connect to a 50kW station, the charging time is 75 minutes.
  • Normal charging When connected to an AC charging station, it takes 9 hours 35 minutes to fully charge the long-range battery pack. You can also connect to a regular household power socket using the ICCB-cable (in-cable control box) for a charging time of 31 hours. KONA Electric comes equipped with an on-board-charger, which converts AC power from the wall socket to DC power that charges the battery in the vehicle.
  • Programmable charging As you like it. KONA Electric’s advanced battery management system gives you complete control.
    Personalise your charging times to best fit your schedule and budget.
    • Battery status One look is all it takes. Range and battery state of charge are clearly displayed, as well as charging times when plugged into the various types of chargers.
    • Charging time reservation A few taps is all it takes to save money. Use the Charging Time Reservation function on the centre screen to program start and stop charging times to make the most of off-peak electricity rates and wake up to a fully charged battery.
    • Charging limit Set a Charging Limit – for example 50% – to take advantage of a fast-charger station in the city for the drive home – and then fully charge the battery at home while you’re sleep to take advantage of low electricity rates at night.
You drive it. You electrify it.
