Hyundai tops most fuel-efficient EVs in the US charts

Hyundai Motor, including Kia, topped Ford and GM to become the second best-selling EV brand in the US in the first three months of the year.

Between Hyundai’s dedicated IONIQ 5 and IONIQ 6 EVs, and Kia’s EV6 and EV9, the group sold over 18,500 EVs in Q1. And that’s not including the Kona Electric, Kia Niro EV, or its Genesis luxury brand EV sales, which could push it to over 30,000.

Hyundai upgraded the 2024 Kona Electric with more range, faster charger, and a sleek new design. Starting under $33,000, the Kona EV is one of the most affordable electric cars on the US market.

Hyundai’s IONIQ 6, IONIQ 5, and the Kia EV6 and Niro EV are also in the discussion. Not only are they lower priced, but they are also more efficient.
