Hyundai is aiming to become one of the nations largest provider of Electric cars. Yet has been on the receiving end of much frustration and criticism due to lack of supply to the meet the demand for their IONIQ and KONA models.
The Korean manufacturer has worked hard combat this and has confirmed the supply of thousands of Electric Vehicles, claiming an all-electric Hyundai can be delivered in as little as a few days.
Hyundai currently offers the Kona Hybrid and Kona Electric, IONIQ Hybrid, Plug-In Hybrid and Electric along with mild hybrid Tucson models, and – by the end of the year –three quarters of the entire Hyundai range will be ‘electrified’, with the addition of new 48V mild hybrid i20 & i30 and Hybrid & Plug-In Hybrid Santa Fe – and there is more to come. Hyundai already offers the broadest range of electrified powertrains in the industry and now with increased supply and no waiting time, affordable low or zero emission vehicles are now more accessible than ever.
In response to significant customer demand, Hyundai Motor UK announced in January this year that Kona Electric waiting times would be significantly reduced, following a ramp up in production of its sought-after fully electric model. Through the introduction of manufacture at its European Czech-based plant and by increasing existing availability from its facility in Ulsan, South Korea, supply has now made its way to the UK market, along with the recently refreshed IONIQ Plug-In Hybrid and Electric.
The Hyundai IONIQ was recently named the UK’s most highly rated car in the Honest John Customer Satisfaction Index, and the Kona Electric was this year named the Best Small Car in the Top Gear Electric Awards and a Which? Best Buy – just the latest accolades for Hyundai’s industry-leading line-up of affordable electric vehicles.
Ashley Andrew, Hyundai Motor UK MD, said:
“Ever since we began offering our pioneering electric vehicles in the UK, we have been overwhelmed by demand for them. This year, we can deliver more electric vehicles to our customers than ever thanks to a much-improved supply that not only delivers for our customers but also helps in our goal of becoming one of the largest suppliers of electric vehicles in the UK.”
For customers looking to buy a new electric vehicle, most of our dealerships are now very much open for business and are COVID-secure environments.
