  1. Congratulations Hyundai.
    It is nice to hear from an OEM, which despite the chip crisis, his electric division upright or. could even expand without hearing an excuse for his instead sold burners.

  2. Hmm ..
    These are so many unimportant numbers, since you can read almost nothing relevant from it.
    Overall market and hybrid are not interested in the pages here in fact.
    But for BEV there is either Kona in a piece or Ioniq 5 in sales. Then again purely electric total, but not compared to the previous year.
    Kia is missing completely.
    Hmm …
