Five-Part Content Series to Iconic National Parks on One Charge in the Hyundai Kona Electric

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., July 2, 2020
– In the new five-part content series, Hyundai Highways, Hyundai embarks on some of the most epic, scenic drives in America on just one charge in the 258-mile range, zero-emissions Hyundai Kona Electric. The first episode is available now on Hyundai’s YouTube channel and new episodes will appear every week in July.

The series takes viewers along with host Esteban Gast as he explores Big Sur, Death Valley, Zion, Yellowstone, Grand Tetons and Sequoia National Parks in Hyundai’s all-electric SUV. In each episode, the Kona Electric drives through majestic scenery, curious points of interest, historical landmarks, and interesting places to grab a bite, all on a single charge and with no emissions left behind.  

“Road trips are top of mind for people seeking a socially distanced adventure and Hyundai Highways showcases some of America’s most scenic drives,” said Angela Zepeda, CMO, Hyundai Motor America. “The Hyundai Kona Electric has a 258-mile all-electric range, opening up the possibility for exploration with no emissions.
