Hyundai IONIQ Electric Sales Catching Up With IONIQ Hybrid
Hyundai reached the milestone of 100,000 sales of the IONIQ family that consists of IONIQ Hybrid, IONIQ Electric and IONIQ Plug-In Hybrid versions.
By the end of January 2018, sales amounted to:
- IONIQ Hybrid – 73,821
- IONIQ Electric – 24,995
- IONIQ Plug-In Hybrid – 5,531
- Total: 104,347
We are not surprised that the hybrid sells better, but what is interesting is that the all-electric version is catching up with hybrid.
Hyundai IONIQ Hybrid to Electric sales was:
- 2016: 21,480 to 5,715 (3.8:1)
- 2017: 48,128 to 17,321 (2.8:1)
- January 2018: 4,213 to to 1,959 (2.2:1)
Because the all-electric version still isn’t available in sufficient volume, the ratio between the Electric and Hybrid should continue to improve.
On the other side, the plug-in hybrid version, the most expensive one, is seeing accelerating sales too:
- 2016: 7
- 2017: 4,472
- January 2018: 1,052
Because the IONIQ family is targeted against the Toyota Prius, just imagine how well an all-electric Prius would sell if only the Japanese manufacturer would make one.
