Hyundai’s strong first quarter shows that we continue to meet customer demand, thanks to our growing model range. With the Kona, the i30 Fastback and the i30 N, we are attracting new customers to the Hyundai brand, including design enthusiasts and performance seekers. Moreover, we will further strengthen and renew our portfolio: by mid-2018, 90% of our products will be younger than two years old.
Additionally, Hyundai Motor achieved a leading market position in electrified vehicles (EV) in Europe. With IONIQ Electric, Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid, the company has increased its sales in this category by more than 50 per cent compared to the same period in the previous year, outperforming the overall EV-market.
In the months ahead, Hyundai will maintain the brand’s positive momentum with several new cars coming to European markets, including the All-New Kona Electric, the New Generation Santa Fe and the All-New Hyundai NEXO. With these new products, Hyundai will continue to offer innovative, cutting-edge technology solutions that are accessible for everyone.
