Now the version that we've got here is the Premium SE version that means it is the top of the range. It can do up to 279-miles! Which is a ridiculous amount on 1 full charge and it's got loads of really quite fantastic features to make driving just really quite enjoyable. However, just before we get into the interior. Let's have a look at how Hyundai have demonstrated that they've thought very clearly about making this vehicle fit together. Nothing feels clunky or out of place. For example the charging port is located very seamlessly within the front section of the bonnet. Even here at the back of the KONA where most vehicles would be more than happy to whack something on and go ah that would do. Hyundai have really thought about this and added in a wrap around tail light not to mention these tinted rear-window sections.

So here we are inside the electric car and I have to say it's fantastic! It's everything I look for inside a modern vehicle. it's comfortable, luxurious but it's also very clear and very functional. For example we've got actual physical buttons on the side of the screen. That's a really nice touch because it gives you a tactile response and it means that you're not worrying about whether or not you've actually clicked on something. Then moving down we've got this very stylish very sleek centre console storage unit which reveals a USB and AUX input as well as a small wireless charging plate for your smartphone. That is a fantastic touch from Hyundai because it means that it also gives you the freedom to move around and not worry about whether or not you've changed your phone.

Then moving slightly back from that. We have a very well sized armrest storage units which could hold, I don't know, your sunglasses a bottle of water maybe a camera for example if you go on holiday. So all in all a fantastic sort of front entertainment feature unit.

But that isn't where all of the useful helpful tech stops. In fact, far from it this vehicle has a tyre pressure monitoring system to tell you the individual tyre pressure of each tyre. Not only that it's got a reversing camera. And not to mention a really really intuitive touch screen display system with Apple car play Android Auto. So that you can connect your phone and see your maps and your music as you're going along as if it was your phone. And let's not forget that all of our tech doesn't compromise anything in the back. We've still got plenty of leg room here as well as fold down seats so that your boot space can be made that little bit larger.

All in all then I think that the KONA Electric is a very impressive vehicle. With it's really quite good looks it's attention to detail and serious practicality. I mean 279-mile range, that's fantastic! I genuinely don't think that there are very many other cars on the market which would give you so much value for money.

Anyway, that's it from me.

I hope you enjoyed this video. Make sure to get in contact with our guys at Howards Hyundai. They are really friendly and we would love to have you down at our showroom so you can test drive this awesome car.

I'll see you guys soon.

Goodbye.
