The awesome Hyundai Kona - an EV charging guide
Here we have the current hero EV for the Australian and New Zealand electric vehicle community.
So popular is it world wide, and so big is its battery that Hyundai has issues keeping up with demand. With a 64kwh battery and incredible efficiency, it's easy to see why the Hyundai Kona is so popular with public and corporates alike. The funky colour schemes has created a real Kona buzz as well!
With brisk performance, five-doors, five-passenger SUV style body shell and DC fast charging as standard, the Kona is a family EV with the range, looks and efficiency.
Powered by a 150-kilowatt AC synchronous motor functioning on energy stored in a lithium-ion battery pack, the Kona boasts approximately 450km real world driving range. Want one yet?

Hyundai Kona charging info - how to charge up?
The Kona is equipped with a single Type 2 Mennekes CCS2 charger port. The Type 2 Mennekes connector is what’s typically used at home and at destination chargers. Note: Hyundai only supplies a slow portable charger with the car.
We are currently recommending the Myenergi Zappi as the best domestic wall charger to go with the Kona.
Plug Standard: Type 2 / Mennekes
Maximum AC charge rate: 32amp or 7Kw
Time to fully recharge at the typical 32amp single phase or 7kw is around 9 hours
If you have solar panels at home or at the office, then UK brand Myenergi Zappi is the perfect EVSE charger. It's solar-aware technology links into your solar system to ensure you're never pulling from the electricity grid to charge your Kona - adjusting the charge depending on the amount of power you're pulling in the house so you always get clean, self-generated power behind your driving!
