Hyundai IONIQ EV Sales Top 1,000 In South Korea
Hyundai IONIQ Electric sales are hot in its first two months on its home market in South Korea.
As Yonhap reports:
“Hyundai Motor Co., South Korea’s dominant automobile maker, said Monday that the sales of its electric vehicle, the Ioniq Electric, has reached more than 1,000 units in South Korea in two months of the car’s debut here.”
Demand is strong too, with more than 2,000 orders still waiting to be filled.
Hyundai’s target was to deliver 4,800 IONIQ electric cars in South Korea by the end of this year and it seems the automaker is on track ot hit that mark. Pure electric car sales are expected to reach approximately 8,000 units this year in South Korea, so at 4,800 for IONIQ, Hyundai will have more than half the market.
Sales of IONIQ Electric are expected to begin soon in the U.S., perhaps even sometime this month. The plug-in hybrid version should launch in the states later this year. Pricing is expected around $30,000.
