After a strong June and July, Hyundai has surprised in August with just 4,106 plug-in electric car sales (down nearly 30% year-over-year).

Not only plug-ins were selling worse. The overall Hyundai sales went down by 20.7% to 106,232, but because the drop was lower, the plug-in share is lower than a year ago (3.9% vs 4.4%).

We are not sure why Hyundai is going backward, but hopefully, it will gradually return to growth in the fall, especially if the company will introduce the EV version of the new Kona.

  • FCVs: 681 (up 138%)
