  • Here is how you tell if an electric car is more efficient than an ICE car, or not

    We are all used to the fact that the fuel consumption of a petrol or diesel car is typically expressed in litres per hundred kilometres (l/100 km). Quite simply, understanding and quantifying a ‘litre’ of any liquid comes naturally for anyone who can imagine holding a water bottle in their hands. Unfortunately, it isn’t so straightforward when it comes to electricity, and by that same extension - EVs. An electric car doesn’t use fuel but gets its energy from a battery. The maximum amount of ener

  • To convince the public to switch to EVs, forget Klang Valley, make Langkawi EV-only zone

    Electric vehicles are not for everyone and it’s not just a question of income. Put aside the fact that 70 percent of new cars sold are below RM 100k, the bigger hurdle to overcome is the fact that electric vehicle ownership demands a lot of patience and dedication to the EV cause. EVs are not cars that you simply get in and drive, or decide to drive out of state on a whim, and you can’t make detours to your favourite eateries as you wish. Yes, it is possible to drive a Porsche Taycan all the way

  • Review: 2021 Hyundai Kona N-Line - A surprise package, in a good way

    "Please, be good," I thought to myself as I got into the Hyundai Kona N-Line. Experiences in the past with Hyundai (or Korean cars for that matter) have been very much 'it's much improved but still not quite there', but here is a car that I genuinely wanted to impress me, not just because it looks good or has plenty of shove (198 PS, 265 Nm). Was I impressed though? To find out the answer to that question, let's unpack the layers and break it down for you. Exterior - Bold, fresh and distinctive

  • Ratings: 2021 Hyundai Kona 2.0 Active in Malaysia - Class-leading smoothness, at a price

    Make no bones about it, the 2021 Hyundai Kona's appeal lies more on the subjective end of the scale. Sure, it's attention-grabbing and different, but with prices starting from RM 136k, it's got to perform in a measureable manner too. In the B-segment SUV category dominated by the Proton X50 and Honda HR-V, the fully-imported (CBU Korea) Kona sits on the higher side of the price scale, even out-pricing the Mazda CX-3. 2021 Hyundai Kona Prices in Malaysia Variant Price 2.0 RM 119,888 2.0 Active (a

  • Fancy a Korean EV? This Hyundai Kona EV can be yours for RM 180k

    If you’re in the market for an electric vehicle (EV) but find the Nissan Leaf's lack of support for Type 2 DC charging a bit of a turn-off (it only uses Japanese Type 1 charging and the uncommon ChaDeMo port), perhaps this Hyundai Kona EV would be a better fit. This Ceramic Blue example is currently available at Sime Darby Auto Selection, priced at RM 180,800. This 2018 example of the Kona EV was Hyundai Training Academy’s internal training unit and has covered roughly 18,000 km. As a refresher,
