Hi All,

I'm going to be test driving a Kona electric car on Tuesday 2019 06 11.

One question I am going to ask is about is towing four down.

Does anyone else have questions they would want answers for?


Regards, Don

I don’t believe you should take the salesperson’s answer as correct. Ask to see manufacturer’s written literature on four down towing.

Towed at 70 mph how many kWh will you be generating?

Make sure they understand the question, recreational tow. It's often confused with emergency tow 4 down.

Does the L3 charging slow down after multiple charging sessions in one day?
(I doubt they have the answer so no need to press it)

Looking forward to your report Don.

One question. Does the EVSE the car comes with work on 120 and 240 volts or just 120.

Have fun.

Hi,

I'm pretty sure the Kona would accommodate level 3 (240 volt)charging--but I'll ask!

Hi Mex,

I'd venture a guess of "none".

Hi time2roll,

I'll ask--but with a range of 258 miles (415 kilometers), I can't imagine that being needed.
