Hyundai managed to improve plug-in car sales in February despite challenges in the automotive market.
Hyundai noted a very challenging month in February, as its overall global car sales went down by 21.5% year-over-year to less than 90,000. On the other hand, plug-ins were selling better than a year ago.
The South Korean manufacturer reports 4,036 plug-in car sales (up 22.2% year-over-year), which is also 4.5% of the total volume.
