Description

Korea′s largest automaker Hyundai Motor is lagging far behind its foreign rivals in the global electric vehicle market. Automotive industry portal MarkLines says over 60-thousand electric vehicles were sold worldwide from January to June, a 40 percent increase from the same period last year. Hyundai took up a tiny piece of that pie: zero-point-2 percent to be exact. Its subsidiary Kia Motors sold just 139 units of the Ray, Korea′s first electric vehicle, in the first half of the year. The biggest seller in the global EV market in the first half of this year was the Nissan Leaf, with sales of over 24-thousand, or 40 percent of global EV sales. It was followed by Tesla Motors′ Model S, BMW′s i-3 and Renault′s Zoe.
