In a bid to provide options to Hyundai Kona Electric Vehicle (EV) customers, Stallion Hyundai Motors Nigeria has unveiled both locally assembled petrol-powered Hyundai Kona and the all-new 2021 Hyundai Grand i10 Sedan into the Nigerian market.
The company had late last year and recently (2021) launched the Hyundai Kona Electric (EV) in Lagos and Abuja.
Speaking on the latest unveilings, the brand’s Head of Sales and Marketing, Gaurav Vashisht, said the petrol-powered Kona was a veritable option for the regular customers and lovers of the Kona.
He said, “Hyundai Kona EV and its petrol-powered sibling are two different vehicles. While the Kona EV is powered by an electric motor and draws power from its 64 kilowatt hour (kwh) battery, the Kona petrol is powered by the conventional but more advanced internal combustion engine.”
The 2.0-litre engine 2021 Kona petrol version comes with award-winning styling, equipment and safety features available in the Kona EV, he noted.
Hyundai Nigeria also introduced the 2021 Hyundai Grand i10; designed to appeal primarily to entry level buyers in their 20s and 30s, young families, singles, salaried and self-employed and budget-conscious people looking to downsize.
The Grand i10 hits the target precisely by delivering modern design, spacious interior with advanced connectivity options, superior safety features and economical operation.
The new Grand i10 sedan demands attention and a closer investigation. The 1.2-litre engine mated to 4-speed automatic transmission is designed and built to the highest standards, earning an “A+” grade when it comes to protecting the driver and cabin occupants.
“This is a car that will be popular among the youths, as well as attract patronage from banks and other corporate organisations that need portable and rugged vehicles for their day-to-day runs,” said Vashisht.
