Hyundai Kona EV rules in Korea
The South Korean market is cooling down, with the last three months witnessing YoY drops, hurting the YTD growth, now at just 10% YoY, with the PEV share dropping from the record 2.3% of July, to the current 2%.
Looking at the models ranking, the Hyundai Kona EV extended its lead over the competition, doubling the sales of the #2 Kia Niro EV.
The Chevrolet Bolt assured the 3rd spot, winning precious ground over the Hyundai Ioniq Electric and the tiny Samsung Twizy, with Hyundai's hatchback profiting from the recent upgrade to surpass the Franco-Korean model.
A final mention to the Hyundai Nexo Fuel Cell model, a model that is seeing its registrations jump six-fold this year, to 3.207 units, making it a success story in Korea, a unique event for a FCEV, allowing the technology to have 0,22% share of the total market, a world best for Fuel Cells.
