For the first time, Kia sold more than 1.000 electric cars in one month in South Korea. The electric car responsible for this feat was the newcomer Kia Niro EV that had 1.066 units sold last month in its domestic market.
Currently the Hyundai Kona Electric and the Kia Niro EV represent the new generation of electric cars from the Hyundai Kia Automotive Group. Range is no longer a problem, but availability and price still are.
Moreover, the Kia Niro EV will be joined by the next generation Kia Soul EV early next year.
Also last month, Kia’s sister company, Hyundai, sold 102 units of the Hyundai IONIQ Electric and 1.382 units of the Hyundai Kona Electric in South Korea. It’ll be interesting to find out in the next months which one, the Hyundai Kona Electric or the Kia Niro EV will sell the most.
Thanks Illia Drobchak for the heads up.
