More on e-mobility
When it comes to electric mobility, there are several types of powertrains available on the market today. Battery Electric Vehicles, Hybrid Electric Vehicles, and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles.
BEVs, such as the KONA Electric, run on electric power alone, and allow for emissions-free driving.
A Hybrid, or Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV), is equipped with both an internal combustion engine and an electric motor. Depending on the driving situation, cars like the TUCSON Hybrid switch seamlessly between the electric motor and conventional engine, sometimes utilising both at the same time.
A Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) like the SANTA FE Plug-in, gives you the best of both worlds, with the ability to drive on electric power alone for short distances, and the added benefit of a petrol or diesel engine when you need it.
Over their service life, electrified vehicles have lower carbon emissions than those that rely on petrol or diesel alone and therefore, make less of an impact on global CO2 levels. For example, the KONA Electric produces zero emissions while providing a driving range of 449 km with the 64kWh Battery option (WLTP). There are also financial benefits in making the switch to EV. While the purchase of an EV can be more expensive than the average automobile, the operating costs are typically lower. Furthermore, BEVs in particular, have only a fraction of the moving parts that a conventional automobile has, meaning in many cases a reduced maintenance cost. When you combine this with the multiple government incentives available in Europe, such as tax benefits, free parking and more, switching to an EV can be an attractive offer.
When it comes to charging your vehicle, your options will depend on how developed the charging infrastructure is where you live.
For home charging, many drivers of electric vehicles choose to have a wall-mounted charging point installed at home for faster charging vs. a normal wall socket. Depending on your country of residence, you might be eligible for government grants to help with the costs of installation.
At the same time, more and more companies are offering their employees the option to charge their EVs at the office. With various options available, driving an EV ultimately means learning a new way of “filling up”. For example: when you go to the supermarket, the movies or to a restaurant with friends, remember to check where the closest public charging station is. Then simply plug in and charge up for the time your car is parked. Step by step, e-mobility is becoming the standard of the industry.
