Additional production of Kona Electric in Europe helps to match high demand.

High demand and strengthened supplies in Europe allowed Hyundai to sell a near-record number of plug-in electric cars. For Kona Electric in particular, it was a record month.

In June 2020, the South Korean manufacturer sold some 8,545 plug-in cars, which is 38% more than a year ago.

Because the overall Hyundai sales have decreased by 3.8% year-over-year to 149,207, the plug-in share out of the overall volume improved to 5.7%. So far this year, Hyundai sold over 39,000 plug-in electric cars.
