Hyundai Motor UK sales grew 8.3% year-on-year during 2023, continuing an upwards sales trend that saw 2022 sales also up 15.3% over the same period. Overall, Hyundai Motor UK sold 87,100 vehicles last year, with TUCSON leading the surge, as both the best-selling Hyundai model and the 2nd best-selling hybrid in the UK.

The impressive sales growth is bolstered by a range of vehicles geared towards the desires of both private and business customers, with strong SUV and alternative-fuel offerings. In fact, 75% of Hyundai Motor UK’s 2023 sales were of SUVs and 48% Hybrid, Plug-in Hybrid or Electric. TUCSON shines yet again, with TUCSON Plug-in Hybrid selling 6,073 units during 2023 – an increase of 88% year-on-year. With the All-New KONA Electric and the IONIQ 6 going on sale in 2023, its award-winning EV line-up continued to grow with even more cutting-edge models. 

Throughout the year, the Hyundai Motor UK range gained more recognition from experts, with a number of high-profile awards. Last year alone the IONIQ 6 was crowned World Car, World Electric Vehicle and World Car Design of the Year. The IONIQ 5 N, acclaimed for its design and thrilling performance, won TopGear.com’s Car of the Year. The All-New KONA was named Auto Express Car of The Year and TUCSON was recognized as the Best SUV for the third consecutive year by Auto Express.

Alongside the award-winning product line-up, Hyundai Motor UK continues to evolve its customer service offering. During 2023, customer satisfaction reached new heights, with Hyundai achieving a Net Promotor Score (NPS) of 92.9, up 1.8 points/2% year on year.

We’ve taken a holistic view of our brand over the last few years, not just optimising our model range but also very closely looking at all the ways that we can deliver the best possible service. With the endorsement of countless experts in the media, a total of 26 high-profile awards for our models in 2023 and the kind of word-of-mouth recommendations that come from extraordinary customer experiences, we’ve seen the fruits of our strategy with consistent year-on-year growth. As our IONIQ line-up continues to grow and desirable models like All-New SANTA FE join the range, we’re poised for more success in 2024.
