Hyundai supports EV awareness throughout September
With the lifting of lockdowns and opening of showrooms, Hyundai has already sold more than 5,700 pure electric cars in the first 7 months of 2021, a rise of 93 per cent as part of its ongoing commitment to decarbonise road transport.
Hyundai continues its journey to sustainable mobility during September, with a range of activities designed to support consumer engagement, celebrate 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. Hyundai Motor UK managing director, Ashley Andrew was a keynote speaker during EV SUMMIT. The two-day summit brings together business leaders working on electric vehicles to explore how we advance battery electric mobility. As a speaker on the Electric OEM panel, Ashley talked about the journey ahead and how Hyundai is working towards electric passenger vehicles being delivered at pace, with a long-term outlook.
Hyundai also increased consumer awareness around EV choice and attended Fully Charged OUTSIDE. As part of its presence, Hyundai took centre stage with its electric range, showcasing IONIQ 5 and KONA Electric with test drives available.
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 brands 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 9th 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.
