Feel like taking control? In Sport Mode, you can use the steering-wheel-mounted shift paddles to shift gears manually for more thrills.

Energy flow

Depending on the driving situation, the all-new KONA Hybrid switches seamlessly between its petrol engine and electric motor. 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

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.
Acceleration/Uphill

Acceleration/Uphill

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

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.
Deceleration/Downhill

Deceleration/Downhill

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.

Saving fuel and lowering emissions: ECO-DAS

Excellent fuel efficiency and low CO2 emissions are supported by the ECO Driving Assistant System (ECO-DAS). When a route is entered into the navigation system, this predictive energy management system analyses it, tapping into topography data to set an optimal mix of battery power and petrol. The Coasting Guide also informs the driver when a driving situation demanding deceleration is imminent to reduce fuel consumption.





Predict Uphill

Predict Uphill

If the battery is low ahead of a hill, engine operation increases slightly to pre-charge it before the incline. This way, the electric motor can assist going uphill – thus optimizing fuel-efficiency
Predict Downhill

Predict Downhill

If the battery is sufficiently charged, electric motor usage is increased before driving downhill to minimise fuel consumption. The battery is recharged on the way downhill by regenerative braking.
Coasting Guide

Coasting Guide

The Coasting Guide analyses information from the navigation system and alerts when a situation demanding deceleration is imminent. This reduces fuel consumption and minimizes brake usage.
