Hyundai Plug-In Electric Car Sales Up 138% In August 2018
Hyundai Kona Electric sales decreased to below 1,000 though.
Hyundai is producing and selling more plug-in electric cars than a year ago – in August, manufacturer’s sales amounted to 3,243, which is almost 138% more than in August 2017.
However, the result is almost 1,000 lower than the peaks in June and July, so the plug-in share out of overall volume decreased to 2.3%.
Hyundai plug-in electric car sales – August 2018
Sales by model:
- IONIQ Electric – 1,657
- IONIQ Plug-In – 623
- Kona Electric – 956
- Sonata Plug-In – 7
We should be especially disappointed by the Kona Electric number – 956, compared to 2,196 in June and 1,775 in July. The main question is why the production/sales decrease when there are so many orders and the car was well received in the reviews?
So far this year, Hyundai sold 24,908 plug-in electric cars worldwide.
