New upgraded Hyundai Kona Electric unveiled in Nepal

KATHMANDU: Laxmi Intercontinental Pvt Ltd, the exclusive authorised distributor of Hyundai Automobiles in Nepal, has launched new upgraded Hyundai Kona Electric in the market.

Belonging to the Hyundai Kona family, the new model, Kona Electric, have been hailed as the successor of the already dominant Kona lineup.  The new Kona Electric comes with a facelift and some significant upgrades. It is a dynamic, defining vehicle of its own class.

The new Kona Electric has several exciting upgrades both in interiors and the exterior. A cutting-edge design, driven by a pure electric powertrain, provides a longer driving range as well as other advanced connectivity and safety features that make Kona stand out. Kona Electric is ready to break away from the league with its smart sense safety suite, regenerative braking paddle shifters, shift by wire system, climate pre-settings.

The front now comes with a new grille and daytime running lights and has also received a wider set of tail lights to emphasise the car’s presence on the street. The driving range has also seen an upgrade and can drive over 305 kilometres on a single charge. The interior, built on simplicity and good ergonomics,  complements the elegant exterior of Kona.

Further, 39.2kWh lithium-ion polymer battery featuring multi-stage high-voltage safety systems delivers high energy density for the improved driving range. With its 8″ Touchscreen Audio Visual Navigation System, Kona Electric provides a superior spatial experience to further enrich the travelling experience. The layout and packaging of the cells give the Kona Electric a low centre of gravity that promotes agile handling and a comfortable ride.  Kona Electric will be available in six colour variants — Atlas White, Cyber Gray, Galactic Gray, Pulse Red, Surfy Blue and Dark Knight.

Like its predecessor, Kona Electric is expected to create hype in the market for all the right reasons.

Laxmi Intercontinental has decided to expand its charging stations spread across the country. There are currently 36 charging stations spread across Nepal. The company aims to expand the number to 50 throughout major cities and highways in the country by the end of 2021. About 70% of the installation of charging stations has already been completed.

The company has pledged to promote electric vehicle (EV) culture in Nepal beyond simply selling vehicles through the innovative new structure, as well as by expanding the charging stations throughout the country. Laxmi Intercontinental has a pan Nepal presence through 13 dealers and 17 service centres. Hyundai is among the five largest automobile manufacturers in the world and manufactures superior quality vehicles trusted by millions all over the world.
