    I get this message:
    Inside EVS Forum - Error
    (and then something about not having permissions)

    That's odd. I can see the image from his post in your message quote. I'll let the developers know.

    That's the post I can't see the image for. I don't have permission to view files in the Media folder, apparently.
    I can see the image from Wade's post up above that.

    i was kind of surprised at the constant negative feedback from some EV owners regarding this car. I for one, am extremely pleased at the product that Hyundai has developed. i'm on my second Soul, this current one is the soul EV, which was proceeded by my very first Korean car, a 2006 sonata. I am amazed at the quality and design of Hyundai and Kia's latest offerings. The kona EV is going to be a great seller, but one of the most important features is seldom discussed among EV'ers. This new Kona EV has "Liquid cooled batteries", a big improvement over current cars. Chevy and Tesla, and I think BMW have incorporated this into this feature into their battery packs. the Kona will be the first Asian car to also have it. and it is for this reason that I would buy it, rather than lease it, as i'm very confident that 250mile range, along with all the other great tech in the car, plus liquid battery cooling will mean this car will last a long time\

    Why does it have to be a separate electric motor to make it AWD. The ICE equivalent doesn't have a separate engine in the back to power the rear wheels, even my Audi TTS only has one engine yet is all wheel drive.

    Just like its ICE equivalent the Kona petrol has a haldex or similar controller to send power to the rear. Surely a EV can do the same of the motor?

    It doesn't need another electric motor to make it all-wheel-drive, but that tends to be the preferred solution. A mechanical system decreases efficiency (range), while another electric motor can actually raise the overall efficiency.
