I don't know about other places, but here in New York, the Auto Show was in April. Locally, I suspect it had an influence on sales in May.

Breaking down the Ioniq electric sales, there were just 75 electric cars sold in May.

I wonder why the sales for electric models are so small? Might it be Ioniq cars from the Unlimited subscription are not counted? Or is the issue just the lack of Ioniq electric vehicles available? Or are so few of the electric cars selling?

Kia USA sold 2,660 Niro in May. So most Ioniq/Niro powertrain sales are in the Niro CUV format.
It's the same in France, with an even larger Niro share.

Maybe because "general public" is like me? "no no no, no electric drive car. I will get no-where with the limited range and I have about 3 minutes to fill it up; not 6 hours". In other words: no charger at work, no charger at home.

Distances in the `States are just... bigger

Probably more an indication of how range anxiety affects sales as it is any sales inertia from slow supply. Remember this is still only a `toe dipping` exercise for Hyundai.

I'd happily have an electric car: One that goes 500 miles between fill ups; can be refuelled in 3 minutes and costs no more than a hybrid...

Not gonna happen anytime soon.

What the US needs to encourage `leccy vehicle sales is congestion charging for major conurbations, like in the UK. And a network of electric car chargers, no more than 110 miles apart of course.

What happened to the Genesis sales. Looks like they took a steep nosedive.

I guess the question is the small sales of the Ioniq electric relative to the sales of other electric cars.
  • Chevy Bolt sold 1,566 cars
  • Nissan Leaf (with smaller range) sold 1,392 cars
  • Fiat 500e sold 665 cars
  • BMW i3 sold 506 cars
  • BMW i3 sold 506 cars
  • VW eGolf which is very similar in range and price as the Ioniq sold 381 cars
  • Ford Focus Electric sold 132 cars

The Ioniq electric is really at the bottom of the list when it comes to electric car sales in the US. So I was wondering why that might be?

That said, Hyundai sold 5 Ioniq electric cars in March and 19 in April leading up to 75 now in May, so there is some upward trajectory but it's still small.

problem at the moment is supply of the battery packs, so they seem to be concentrating on customer orders rather than stock

Don't think that's a strict like-for-like comparison as many of those vehicles have long been embedded in the marketplace, whereas the Ionic EV is a recent arrival, and we know that many orders remain to be fulfilled.

I wouldn't read too much into the numbers at this stage.
