The third round of this year’s Formula 1 World Championship takes place at Portugal’s Autódromo Internacional do Algarve, near Portimão. As was the case with the Grands Prix run in Sakhir and Imola, the drivers find themselves back on a track that they last visited just a few months ago. Last year’s Portuguese Grand Prix was held on 25 October.
2022 Hyundai Kona Highlights
With the facelift, a 10.25-inch digital cockpit moves into the Hyundai Kona Electric for the first time. In the Kona Hybrid, it is standard equipment from the Trend equipment line. In the higher trim levels, it can be optionally supplemented with an equally large navigation touchscreen in the center of the dashboard (standard in the Kona Electric Prime package). The Bluelink® telematics system now offers additional functions such as "Connected Routing", "Last Mile Navigation" and the creation of multiple user profiles. Hyundai has also expanded the SmartSense comfort and safety features on the Kona Hybrid and Kona Electric. While a modern 1.6-liter GDI Kappa gasoline four-cylinder combined with a permanent magnet electric motor provides a system output of 104 kW/141 hp in the Kona Hybrid, customers can choose from two battery-electric powertrains in the Kona Electric. The Kona Electric with a 39.2 kWh battery has a 100 kW/136 hp electric motor and enables a range of 305 kilometers (according to the WLTP standard). In the version with a 64 kWh high-performance battery and 150 kW/204 hp electric motor, the range is even 484 kilometers (according to the WLTP standard).
The new 2.0-litre four-cylinder P400e plug-in hybrid offers a smooth and refined drive, producing a combined 404PS and 640Nm of torque from its 300PS petrol engine and 105kW electric motor, with an impressive 0-60mph in 5.1 seconds (0-100km/h in 5.4 seconds). A 17.1kWh lithium-ion battery, located under the boot floor, can be charged to 80 per cent in just 30 minutes†† using a fast DC charge point, or 1 hour 40 minutes using a standard 7kW wallbox. With zero tailpipe emissions in electric mode, an impressive real-world all-electric range of 53km (33 miles), fuel economy of up to 2.2 litres/100km (130.2mpg) and CO2 emissions from just 49g/km, the Range Rover Velar is now even more sustainable by design.
