More than 7,000 Kona Electric sold in a single month.

In September, Hyundai sold a near-record number of plug-in electric cars - 8,418 globally (up 40.1% year-over-year).

Since the overall volume improved by 16.2% to 142,223, the plug-in share is now at 5.9%.

Strong results are mostly the fruit of record sales of the Hyundai Kona Electric, which for the very first time exceeded 7,000 in a single month. Hyundai is clearly rushing EV sales in Europe to meet the emission requirements in 2020.
