Well this thing is going to be hard to improve upon aside from charging with grid power and bigger battery.

I knew it had a 6 speed auto (not a cvt) but what I didn't know is hyundai used the electric motor to eliminate the torque converter.

Some guys took apart a hyundai battery to find it uses an off the shelf bms.

Much better than nissan and their proprietary battery everything. Maybe the hyundai kona runs an off the shelf BMS and active thermal management, by by leaf.
