Hyundai reports over a 13% decrease of its global car sales to 137,962 in July (on a manufacturer level), however, the plug-in segment continues to expand and reaches all-time record levels for the third consecutive month.

The company sold a total of 11,742 plug-ins (up 39% year-over-year), which translated to a new record share of 8.5%.

The perspectives for further growth are very good and we might soon see more than 10% share for plug-ins.

  • PHEVs: 1,532 (up 67%)
