I took my car in for the software update as per an email request from Hyundai, to be told that the software is upto date! Still, I got a free valet and safety check.

Interesting that after 5,000 miles the brakes are barely worn, 5% worn, so potential for well over 50,000 miles lifespan? The regenerative braking is saving wear on the discs and pads and on the course of doing that putting charge back into the battery.

On a negative note the front tyres are down to 5.8mm tread. A combination of so much torque that it is easy to burn rubber when accelerating and very light steering. Must learn to be more light footed with the accelerator.

I thought the disc wear and tear kind of progresses over time. It's not linear, in other words. Maybe I'm wrong. 5% after 5,000 miles is awesome, regardless.

When I come off at a motorway junction and down the ramp I use regenerative braking. So for instance if I reckon the lights will be red when I get to the roundabout I can slow and gently roll up to the lights anticipating green using just the steering wheel regen paddles without touching the brake pedal and also add over 1/2 mile to the range. A double win.

The regenerative braking is really quite strong on the highest setting.

Hyundai have stopped taking orders for the Kona Electric as they have sold out this year's allocation :shock:

Fortunately I ordered mine 2 weeks ago :D

I’ve had my Kona for 6 weeks now it’s the 64 kW premium SE ceramic blue with white roof and two tone blue grey interior.
We’ve also fitted solar panels and a Zappi charger which allows us to charge from solar only or a mix of solar and grid or all from the grid.

Hi Folks
Just my Kona 64Kw for a month and people flash me as my beam is too high (OMG that makes me sound like a weirdo! ). Does anyone know how I can lower it? I've looked through the 1,000 page bible that doubles up as the "Owners manual" but still none the wiser. My last planet polluting VW Golf was simple it had a dial to raise and lower the lights! Mind you it actually had a handbrake and a gear stick!!
PS - If anyone is wondering ..I've done 1400 miles and I think it is a fantastic car... does exactly as promised!
