    Experienced after buying

    I bought this electric car 2 months back, driven 9900 kms until now. It runs 250 kms around with a single charge comfortably with AC on. Then u have to charge for complete peace of mind. Price high but u get 40% depreciation in your ITR for consecutive 4 years which means u haven't paid anything except for insurance and RTO. please make this car with two sets of battery, one for 250 kms and other for 125 kms, and alternatively, they should get charged by the regenerative power energy source and kinetic energy too thus KONA will go beyond 1000 kms. Very smooth, silent ride. Cruise control and hill assist presently. 2 negative points. Rear seats not having any fan facility and rear shockers are not too good.

    Disappointed

    The car is underpowered and too overpriced....much better competitors in the market. Honda should stop charging the customers for its badge....Better built cars available at a far more competitive price, it's high time Honda stops taking customers for a ride....We are all well informed now and understand that all makers are more or less offering equal quality product, so why charge exorbitant premium ?

    Nice drive but mileage drops on highway

    Mileage drops by 20% with AC on, and a further 20% on a highway. Max range of 320 drops to only about 240 on a highway with AC. Not suitable for long drives, and only city driving, for which it is too expensive.
