Maybe you think you spend a lot of time behind the wheel.
You probably can’t compare to Kansas delivery driver Farrah Haines, who
recently notched a cool
1 million miles on the original drivetrain of her 2013 Hyundai Elantra.
“Reaching one million miles with the original
powertrain in just five years is an extremely rare and incredible
achievement,” explained Hyundai Motor America’s CMO, Dean Evans.
Not many drivers put the kind of stress on their vehicles
that Haines, who delivers auto parts around the Midwest, does. In fact,
Consumer Reports has a popular article on how to maintain your car so it
reliably to 200,000 miles — just one-fifth of the distance that
Haines coaxed out of her trusty Elantra.
“My Hyundai has been a great car to me,” Haines said. “Over the years I have been beyond pleased at my car’s performance, a quality that is inherent to the Hyundai brand.”
This year, Hyundai managed an incredible feat at the Detroit
Auto Show, scoring two of three awards for best car and SUV in America. In the
25 years that the NAIAS has been happening, a single manufacturer winning more
than one yearly award has only been accomplished 5 times. The South Korean auto
manufacturer deserves some major kudos for this achievement.
But what vehicles won, you ask? The Hyundai Genesis G70 beat out the Honda Insight and the Volvo S60/V60 to become the Best Car in America. The Hyundai Kona and Kona EV swept away the competition for Best Utility Vehicle in America, beating out both Jaguar’s I-Pace and Acura’s RDX.
As that old tune from the ’60s so rightly observed, “the times, they are a-changing,” with electric and hybrid vehicles becoming a more common sight on America’s highways and byways. That said, many electric vehicles aren’t exactly known for their prowess on the road. Enter the 2019 Hyundai Kona Electric, which aims to change that perception in ways that just might surprise you.
