The electric car achieved this achievement by lifting to a record height.

The Hyundai Kona Electric crossover set a climb uphill for electric vehicles. Such an achievement was established at the Savul Pass in Tibet. The electric car was able to rise to a height of 5,731 meters, beating the previous achievement, which was 5,715.28 meters. Due to this result, the car will be entered in the Guinness Book of Records. The car received an additional power reserve when descending from the mountain due to the on-board regeneration system. The system is based on energy storage during braking.

 The car was presented in the spring of 2018 and became the first electric car in the model range of the brand.

 An electric motor with a return of 135 hp is used as a power plant. A battery with a capacity of 39.2 or 64 kilowatt hours is used for its operation. In the case of a 64 kilowatt-hour battery, an electric car can cover 470 km without recharging.
