Petrol engine and electric motor.

A specially calibrated 1.6-litre GDi direct injection petrol engine delivers power with class-leading energy efficiency. Enjoy electric acceleration. The electric motor delivers high torque and high efficiency. It also delivers impressive acceleration when starting.

Regenerative braking.

Depending on the driving situation, the new KONA Hybrid switches seamlessly between its petrol engine and electric motor, sometimes using both. The regenerative braking system charges the battery by using the electric motor to slow the car. The energy stored in the battery then powers the electric motor to help in acceleration, uphill driving and low speed driving. This complex energy flow is illustrated in these animations.

Start/ Low Speed.

When starting or driving at low speed, the electricity stored in the battery powers the electric motor to accelerate the KONA Hybrid.

During heavy acceleration or driving uphill, the electric motor and petrol engine work in pararell to maximise acceleration and minimise fuel consumption.

Constant Speed.

At constant speeds, power is provided by either the petrol engine or the electric motor, whichever is the most energy-efficient in that situation.

The regenerative braking system charges the battery by using the electric motor to slow the car. When decelerating or driving downhill, the energy generated is stored in the battery.

Regenerative Braking.

When decelerating (e.g. through braking or when driving downhill) the electric motor operates as a generator and regenerates kinetic energy into electric energy, which is then stored in the battery.
