Because this is an electric vehicle, it has many differences compared to the gas-powered alternative. The 2019 Hyundai Kona EV has paddle shifters mounted near the steering wheel for easy access, and it also has a shift-by-wire push-button feature. In addition, a regenerative braking system is loaded into the vehicle so that the battery can be partially recharged while you are behind the wheel. While these features are unique based on the vehicle's power source, there are a few similar features that you may also notice in the gas-powered version. These include anti-lock brakes, advanced shocks and struts and a superior rear and front suspension system. The sales professionals at our Southfield Hyundai dealership are eager to open the hood so that you can check out some of this vehicle's mechanical features for yourself.
