Hyundai Motor UK has come out top in two industry rankings, as consumers are increasingly looking for electrified mobility solutions that are better for the planet.
The revolutionary Hyundai IONIQ 5 has led the charge for electric vehicles in 2021 since its launch earlier this year.
As the nation faced an unprecedented fuel crisis in September, Auto Trader saw a subsequent surge in ad views for electric vehicles, with the IONIQ 5 topping the charts. New and used electric model ad views increased by 28% and 61% respectively across the weekend where the fuel shortages hit worst, compared to the previous weekend. Four out of five of the best performing new cars on the site during this period were electric – and the Hyundai IONIQ 5 came out top.
Manufacturers have worked hard to shift customer perceptions of electric vehicles in recent years, no more so than Hyundai, with the launch of ‘cool’ and aspirational models, such as the IONIQ 5.
Additionally, leading auction specialists Aston Barclay graded the UK’s 25 ‘most desirable’ used cars, and for the first time an electric model topped the rankings – the Hyundai IONIQ Electric, which was the most in-demand used vehicle across physical and digital auction channels during October. The index was based on key metrics such as web views prior to sale and number of bids per sale.
The data from Auto Trader and Aston Barclay shows that interest in zero and low emission vehicles is growing, as consumers become increasingly more conscious of their environmental impact.
