Hyundai is already exporting the Kona Electric
Last month, Hyundai produced more units of the Kona Electric for exportation than for its own domestic market.
Let’s see the production numbers for June.
Domestic market (South Korea)
- Hyundai IONIQ HEV: 205
- Hyundai IONIQ PHEV: 7
- Hyundai IONIQ Electric: 534
- Hyundai Kona Electric: 1.076
- Hyundai Kona (gas): 2.938
- Hyundai IONIQ HEV: 1.044
- Hyundai IONIQ PHEV: 132
- Hyundai IONIQ Electric: 1.273
- Hyundai Kona Electric: 1.120
- Hyundai Kona (gas): 17.886
Regarding the IONIQ, for the first time Hyundai exported more units of the electric version than the hybrid. Nonetheless, what’s more interesting is that Hyundai is already producing more Kona Electric units for exportation than for its domestic market.
As expected, most of those units produced last month will go to Norway.
Anyway, those production figures are still laughable, especially since last month Hyundai exported 17.886 units of the gas-burning Kona.
