Hyundai reports that it sold 47,872 vehicles last month, which is 10% more than a year ago and the new highest January sales total in the company’s history.
Out of that, 989 Hyundai Ioniq 5 were sold last month, which is already over 2% of the total volume.
Together with 153 units sold in December (customer deliveries started on December 15), there are now more than 1,100 Ioniq 5 on the road. The first thousand out of many more to come, considering the high interest in the Ioniq 5.
Unfortunately, the official stats do not include the sales results of other all-electric or plug-in hybrid models (Kona Electric, IONIQ Electric, IONIQ Plug-In, Santa Fe PHEV and Tucson PHEV), as they are counted together with convention or non-rechargeable hybrids.
The hydrogen fuel cell model – Hyundai Nexo – noted 28 units (up 22% from 23 units a year ago). A huge disproportion compared to the battery-electric Hyundai Ioniq 5.
Currently, Hyundai Ioniq 5 offer includes several versions in the U.S., although the entry-level version with a 58.2 kWh battery will enter the market later (Spring 2022). The top versions can go over 300 miles on a single charge.
