With the lifting of lockdowns and opening of showrooms, Hyundai has already sold more than 5,700 pure electric cars in the first seven months of 2021. This is a rise of 93 percent as part of its ongoing commitment to decarbonise road transport.
Hyundai Motor UK continues its journey to sustainable mobility during September, with a range of activations designed to support consumer engagement, celebrate electric vehicle (EV) ownership and act as a thought leader.
As the car manufacturer that offers the broadest range of electrified powertrains, Hyundai looks to every engagement opportunity with customers that raises awareness of electric vehicles, their ease of use, and environmental benefits.
Kick starting the month, Hyundai will act as thought leaders with an ambitious vision around its role in helping the adoption of sustainable forms of mobility. Ashley Andrew, Hyundai Motor UK managing director, was as a keynote speaker during the 2021 EV Summit.
The two-day summit brings together business leaders working on electric vehicles to explore how to advance battery electric mobility. As a speaker on the Electric OEM panel, Ashley spoke about the journey ahead and how Hyundai are working towards electric passenger vehicles being delivered at pace, with a long-term outlook.
Hyundai are also taking the necessary steps to increase consumer awareness around electric vehicle choice and will be attending Fully Charged OUTSIDE at Farnborough International (3-5) September. Hyundai will take centre stage with its electric range, showcasing IONIQ 5 and KONA Electric with test drives available.
Hyundai will also highlight its sustainability credentials and vision for ‘progress for humanity’ through partnerships such as its work with Healthy Seas, where recovered fishing nets support a circular economy and feature as part of interior surfaces within IONIQ 5.
Ashley Andrew, Hyundai Motor UK managing director, said: “As a leader in eco-mobility and bringing affordable technology to market, we’re keen to show as many customers as possible the benefits of electric cars and our complete range.
“The combination of our presence at Fully Charged, support of World EV Day, and EV Summit highlight our commitment to a future driven by clean and sustainable mobility solutions.”
From this year every Hyundai product, with just one exception, is electrified in some form. The arrival of the IONIQ sub-brand offers a new generation of pure electric models, strengthening the brand’s commitment to electrification.
Hyundai is committed to raising awareness of electric vehicles and their ease of use and associated benefits that customers can enjoy. Supporting this further in September, Hyundai will be the eMobility Partner of World EV Day, which takes place on 9 September.
As a global demonstration of the worldwide shift in attitudes towards sustainable transport, World EV Day encourages motorists to make the shift and support the uptake of alternative fuel source vehicles.
World EV Day will be asking businesses across the world how they will drive change to support eMobility, sharing stories from real EV owners about their journeys on the road to cleaner mobility.
