Hi Kona Electric Owners - has anyone had their high voltage batteries replaced yet ? I was notified a couple of months ago that to reduce the possibility of battery fire during charging I must reduce charge max. pending repl;acement but not a word since then.

I have asked the same question. Spoke to Hyundai customer service a month ago. Was told I would be contacted when it was my turn. They also said batteries are coming in all the time. When pushed they said Carol had more information and would contact me. Hear nothing. Dealership has not heard of a car having battery replaced. Has anyone had their battery replaced?

Hi
I have had my battery replaced. Unfortunately, the new battery does not have the same range as the old battery. My old battery (2018) would charge to 320 miles and would reach 280 actual. The new battery will only charge to 230 and 190 actual. I can only assume the batteries were manufactured by a different company. Has any one else had this issue. Hyundai have no answers.

Have you checked that you are charging to 100% and not to the pre-exchange lower level?

Yes of course. I believe they have adjusted the management system. Very dissatisfied.
