Hyundai has come a long way in precisely 51 years of existence. The South Korean automaker has been manufacturing automobiles in the U.S. since 1986. Today, the industrial conglomerate has the world’s first all-electric compact SUV. On November 20, 2019, Bret Michaels helped the manufacturer celebrate the fresh year, helping them rock out the night.

Hyundai’s all-electric vehicle is the alluring KONA. Starting price is around 36,950 and tops out at approximately $45,200 (the ultimate package). This car allows you to drive 258 miles before recharge. Moreover, you have 2 alternatives for charging your money saver: 7.2 kW AC Wall Box Charger as well as a 2.8 kW Portable Charger. According to India Today, The 7.2 kW AC Wall Box Charger will take around 6 hours and 10 minutes for a full charge, while the 2.8 kW Portable Charger will take 19 hours to completely power the battery.

Overall, this vehicle is an easy-to-use showstopper.
