SEOUL, May 09 (Yonhap) – Domestic and export exports of fully electric vehicles from Hyundai Motor, Kia and Genesis exceeded 50,000 and 100,000 units, respectively, last month, Hyundai Motor Vehicle Group said on Monday.

According to the group, domestic sales of three of the group’s three electric vehicles were 54,919 units. Hyundai Motor’s Ioniq 5 sold 33,213 units, Kia 18,509 EV6 and Genesis’ GV60 3,197. Launched in April, August and October 2021 respectively.

Exports also recorded a significant increase to more than 102,000 units in April. Those of Ioniq 5 reached 62,000, EV6 39,000 and GV60 1,000.

All three vehicles were built on the Global Modular Power Platform (E-GMP).

Of the 30,550 South Korean brand electric vehicles sold in the domestic market this year, 59.7 percent, or 20,035 units, are fully electric vehicles.

In the global market, 76,801 electric vehicles were sold in the first quarter, of which 42,657 units, or 56 percent, were electric vehicles.

Sales of all Hyundai Motor Group electric vehicles are expected to keep pace in the second quarter.

The Hyundai Motor factory in Indonesia began producing Ioniq 5 in March, and car orders in the country exceeded 1,500 units, representing 87 percent of total car sales in the Indonesian market last year.

Additionally, Hyundai Motor plans to launch the new Ioniq 6 electric car at the beginning of the second half of the year and sell it in overseas markets from the fourth quarter. The Genesis GV60 is expected to launch in the United States in the second half of the year.

If the plan goes as planned and the supply of car chip reductions is reduced in the second quarter, the group’s goal of selling 200,000 total electric vehicles can be achieved.
