Third consecutive record year for Hyundai in Europe

Hyundai has just finished another record year. The most successful year of Hyundai in Europe accounted for sales totalling 523,258 new registrations, according to the latest data from Europe’s auto industry body, the ACEA.

Surpassing the European car market average growth, the company showed a strong sales performance with an increase of 3.5 percent in 2017. Important models like the i30 five-door and the Ioniq completed their first full year of sales, driving overall performance. The company completed the Ioniq range with the Ioniq Plug-in Hybrid, and the i30 range was complemented with the successful i30 N, the i30 Fastback and the i30 Wagon.

As in the previous year, the Tucson followed by the DNA models i20, i10 and i30 were exceptionally successful. The compact SUV is again Hyundai’s best seller in Europe, with sales of 150,000 units in 2017. The Ioniq showed strong sales volumes in the eco-car segment of more than 23,000 units.

In 2018, Hyundai will introduce several new models that will support its ambition to become number one Asian car brand in Europe by 2021. The first is the Nexo, Hyundai’s fuel cell model that will celebrate its European premiere at the Geneva Motor Show. Another highlight in 2018 will be the introduction of the Kona Electric. With the product launches coming to market in the first half of 2018, Hyundai will have renewed 90 percent of its lineup in less than two years.
