We take the new Hyundai Kona on a shoot

Written by Media Manager.

We needed some promotional photos of the all new 2018 Hyundai Kona EV.
This involved a bit of a tiki tour to get the right shot. This also involved some quiet time behind the wheel of this next generation all electric vehicle from Hyundai. 

They say the big selling point is the 468KM range from one charge. 
We say the big selling point is how it drives. 
This is the future folks. 

 

This week Bowater Hyundai have had an early release Hyundai Kona EV for test drives. Congrats to all those on the list that got to experience the future. Very seductive and alluring. Once you have experience of the instant torque of the EV it’s hard to go back, and this one has range enough for you to not even notice what the battery status is Day to Day.

You seriously need to jump into the demonstrator at Bowater Hyundai and try it out for yourself.
It is a very different driving experience. The power is instant and doesn't seem to run out.
It is so smooth and quiet.

The range is something that is much talked about with electric vehicles. At 420km plus in real world mountainous New Zealand driving, you can get a long way between charges, or top ups. 
The way that the infrastructure is rolling out there are charging stations popping up all over the show. In just 30 minutes you can be topped up to 80% and be on your way again. 

It really in no different to coping with a smart phone. You plan your use and charge it accordingly. Most people will charge their phone overnight ready for the next day, regardless whether the phone is at 5% or 55%. The same applies to your electric vehicle. Keep it topped up and you are good to go!

Daryl has been in the car industry for a long time, ever since he started as an apprentice mechanic for the Post Office's Workshop in Wellington, where he grew up.

We are fortunate to have him, and all of his varied vehicle industry experience, with us at Bowater Hyundai since 2010. He has seen the Hyundai brand go from strength to strength and has a depth of technical knowledge of the evolution of the range of vehicles. 

Daryl lives in Stoke with his wife, they have four grown children living as far afield as Wellington and Sydney. A proud supporter of the Hurricanes and the Lions, Daryl maintains his strong connection to the city he grew up in.

He is a strong believer in the Bowater Motor Group philosophy of giving back to the community and thrives on "the strong focus of ethical business within the company". As such Daryl is a strong advocate for the special relationships that Bowater Hyundai has built with community partners such as Big Brothers Big Sisters and Victory Boxing.

Daryl is an enthusiastic fisherman and says his lack of results has failed to deter him from his enthusiasm. Click here to contact Daryl.
