The Hyundai Kona Electric has made it to the prestigious Guinness World Records. The Kona Electric is first fully Made-in-India electric compact SUV driven to an altitude of 5,731 meters to Sawula Pass in Tibet and comfortably breaking the previous record of 5,715.28 meters altitude by any electric car.
With this feat, Kona Electric has proven itself as a truly reliable electric vehicle in extreme conditions. During the expedition, Kona Electric performed excellently on harsh weather conditions like low temperatures, continuous snowfall, and icy tarmacs. The Electronic Stability Control (ESC) in the Kona Electric ensured the stability of vehicle handling in all road conditions. Technology and performance hand-in-hand made Kona Electric a true performer and record-making first electric vehicle to reach the highest altitude.
During the entire drive duration, the Kona Electric was charged through the convenient portable chargers. The car was charged overnight with the standard portable charger provided along with the vehicle. No performance issues were found while climbing the peaks. While descending from peaks, the smart power regeneration system in the vehicle complimented the driving range. The conquest personifies Kona EV’s powerful performance and assurance of its range and capability to outperform in any weather conditions across extreme geographies and demographics.
