Hyundai is on the rise
Hyundai once again raised the bar for plug-in electric car sales, achieving in December a new all-time record of 8,174, which is 276% more than a year ago. The plug-ins now account for a record high 5.3% of total volume for the South Korean brand.
The year 2018 closed with 53,114 plug-in electric sales for Hyundai - 144% more than a year ago and an average share of 3.1%. With such great progress, we assume a six-digit result in 2019.
