No idea.
I've no idea. Perhaps we'll have access to those before too long. If Hyundai/KIA/Genesis publishes a technical paper it will show up at SAE International at some point.
Vehicle range will be an artifact of Cd to some degree. It's funny how many automotive journalists haven't made the connection between CdA and range yet.
They're bored with TESLA's 'look', and want different 'styling,' not realizing that Tesla's 'appearance' is a critical key to highway range.
