Hyundai’s popularity in the UK hit new highs last year.

2018 saw Hyundai claim a record-breaking 3.8% share of the UK new car market, registering 89,961 new vehicles. The Hyundai Tucson led the way with over 27,000 sold.

Hyundai’s investment in low and ultra-low emission vehicles also reaped dividends as sales of the IONIQ rose by 45.2%, while the all-electric KONA – with its 279-mile range – also made a strong impact upon launch.

Ashley Andrew, Hyundai UK Managing Director, said: “The UK car market is facing a host of challenges, so it is gratifying to see Hyundai secure its highest ever market share while achieving strong growth across our eco-model range. This year, we will focus on consolidating our position ahead of some significant new model arrivals in 2020.”
