PETALING JAYA: The Hyundai Kona has set a Guinness World Record as it was driven to an altitude of 5,731 metres to Sawula Pass in Tibet and comfortably breaking the previous record of 5,715.28 metres altitude by any electric car.
With this feat, Hyundai said the Kona Electric has proven itself as a reliable electric vehicle in extreme conditions. It had endured harsh weather conditions like low temperatures, continuous snowfall and icy tarmacs.
“The Kona Electric is a tech icon and the new normal as it is the first long range green SUV with 452km per charge enhancing Indian customer confidence towards electric mobility," said Hyundai Motor India managing director/CEO S.S. Kim.
To avoid range anxiety, customers are provided with two chargers along with the car – a portable charger and an AC wall box charger.
