Re: Kona EV Real World Range Experience

Thanks Patrick. We're looking at this as a possible option https://shop.openenergymonitor.com/ovms/ but not sure of its compatibility with the Kona or if anyone has had any experience using something like this. I love the data, but the other half is the control system engineer - planning the whole h...

Re: Kona cargo area and pets

Thats perfect - exactly the dimensions I was after. Yes we have had a boot liner in every car we've owned, including our last three Hyundai cars. Included in the order for our Kona EV, but wanted something that goes up the sides to protect the plastic/leather that the boot liner doesn't protect as t...

Kona cargo area and pets

HI, Still waiting for my Kona - only 2 mths and 25 days to go :shock: Wondering if someone could give me the specific measurements for the cargo area and provide any solutions to keeping a dog in the back. We have typically used a cargo barrier (which is not available for the Kona electric) and I al...

Re: Kona EV Real World Range Experience

Enjoying the spreadsheet data and posts of range.

Waiting on my Kona EV purchase (bring on Nov/Dec 2020!), and since I don't have a manual to check yet, is there anyway to download/extract the data from the car? Or is it all manual data entry?

Re: I've got my Kona

So excited to be reading all your posts. Ordered my ceramic blue highlander on Monday ... now have to wait at least 3 months for it to arrive. We will be doing the Perth to Bridgetown drive fortnightly so particularly loving your range stories, although will be interesting to see how it goes for the...

Re: After sales paint protection and window film

Thanks - feedback from various sources indicating the paint protection not worth it, but tinting worth considering. Just looked into this further. The standard vehicle glass seems to have the 90+% UVB protection (certainly what my 10 year old Sante Fe has), but its the UVA that tinting is helpful fo...

After sales paint protection and window film

HI, I'm a newbie and just ordered a Kona Highlander EV ... just have to wait the 3 months for it to arrive! (sigh). Now that I've signed the contract, I have had the after sales call trying to sell me the paint protection and window films. In the past I've never opted for these, but would appreciate...
