The Hyundai Kona Electric on the road review including ride and handling information. Pick the best engine and compare performance with similar cars.
Must admit your Leaf is better looking, bigger boot.It's not quicker than a Leaf E+ (215bhp, 0-62 6.9secs)
You may well be right, but the video linked to is pointless because there is no comparison with a Leaf E+. We'll wait to see a head to head.However if Hyundai’s performance figures are like their actual range figures and Nissans are the same, the Konas will be accurate and the Nissan miles off!
Not even quietly - the 64KWh Kona has a 67KWh battery - so it’s 64KWh vs 54kwh - that’s a big difference....You may well be right, but the video linked to is pointless because there is no comparison with a Leaf E+. We'll wait to see a head to head.
As far as the range goes, the answer may be that the Koreans have quietly fitted batteries 10% larger than advertised.
This means the range is closer to the WLTP because the buffers are not included in the advertised Kwh.
Whereas Nisssan do include the buffers, hence, for example, a 62Kwh Leaf has only 56kwh usable capacity.
If this is the case, it's a clever marketing ploy and well worth the extra cost because of the favourable publicity.
I don't know what you are on about. I never quoted any car review for Kona or Leaf.What review did you read? It criticised the fact you couldn’t get a 64KWh on earth with a grant, the handling, and the conclusion is there are better cars for the money..... hardly an advert!
