We’ve tried to make sure you find every stage along the path to owning a Kona Electric a thoroughly positive experience. From flexible financing and tailored insurance cover, to sat-nav map updates and fixed-price servicing, we’ll make available everything you could need to get the most out of your new car, now and way down the road.
Smart Cruise Control (SCC) with Stop & Go.
SCC utilises the front radar sensor to detect the speed and distance of vehicles in front of the Kona Electric. SCC then automatically maintains a safe distance to the vehicle ahead, up to a pre-set speed set by the driver (between 30km/h – 180km/h).
The Stop & Go function allows SCC to work in stop/start traffic, bringing the vehicle to a complete stop when appropriate, and automatically (if within 3 seconds) accelerate back up to the original set speed. If the vehicle is stationary for over 3 seconds, SCC w/ Stop & Go will prompt the driver to continue cruise conditions via the steering wheel controls.
Driver Attention Warning (DAW).
Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA).
At speeds of 20km/h or above, Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA) uses radar sensors on either side of the rear bumper to detect vehicles next to and diagonally behind the Kona Electric. If a vehicle is present in the Kona Electric’s blind spot, a visual alert is displayed in the exterior mirrors. If the driver proceeds to activate the corresponding indicator lights, a flashing visual warning is provided and an audible alert is sounded.
Additionally, the system also scans for vehicles approaching rapidly from the rear, and uses the same warning measures to alert the driver of vehicles which may be entering the Kona Electric’s blind spot at a faster speed. At speeds of 60km/h or above, if the driver proceeds to carry-out a lane change after the audible alert is sounded, BCA will apply partial braking to help avoid a collision with an approaching vehicle.
Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA).
Lane Keeping Assist (LKA).
Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA).
Using the BCA system’s radar sensors, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA) monitors for traffic approaching on either side of the Kona Electric when reversing out of perpendicular parking spaces at speeds of up to 8km/h. Should RCCA detect a vehicle approaching, an audible warning will sound, with a visual warning displayed on the dash cluster.
In the case that the driver does not adhere to the warning, RCCA may apply a braking force to help avoid a collision with the approaching vehicle.
Connect to the road, and your world.
Technology is built into every aspect of the Kona Electric to enhance any journey.
