The decrease mainly resulted from the COVID-19 resurgence and the disruption of the semiconductor supply chain around the globe.

Hyundai Motor expects that sales could be slowed down for the rest of this year amid adverse business conditions caused by the same issues.

Nevertheless, Hyundai Motor will make every effort to recover its sales momentum for the rest of the year and proactively cope with the risks.
