Hyundai sold a record number of IONIQ 5s in Q2 as first-half sales reached 18,728. Meanwhile, sales of Kia’s first three-row electric SUV, the EV9, are heating up.

The news comes as CEO Jim Farley confirmed this week that Ford is shifting to smaller, more affordable EVs to close the gap with Tesla and fend off others like BYD globally. Farley said smaller EVs are “super important for our society” while addressing America’s love for “monster vehicles” (you can read more here).
