Kona - 5 Star Vehicle that can’t deliver
Everything about the EV Kona is first class, except what matters most to me, the battery range. Advertised at 250-300 miles per charge, the reality is that during the summer and winter, when the A/C or the heat is needed on a long journey, the actual mileage maxes out at about 180 miles. The meant that a 4 hour trip turned into a 5 + hour trip and this was repeated on the return journey. You are also at the mercy of the charging stations working and being available when your battery is under 20%. Everything else about the EV Kona was great. EV manufacturers have to be honest with consumers because the reality is much different to the advertising.
