    Hyundai Ioniq

    [​IMG]
    None were sold in June of 2022. :(

    Hyundai sold 343,867 vehicles in the first half of 2022, down 15.6% below the 407,135 sold through the same period of 2021.

    Adding, Hyundai’s June monthly sales results were down just 13% which was slightly better than the industry's 15.8% forecasted decline.

    Hyundai established a new retail sales record in June for Santa Fe and set new total sales records for Tucson HEV.

    Hyundai Model Q2 Highlights

    New all-time best Q2 records were set for Tucson HEV, Veloster N, and Palisade with SUVs representing 76% of the total retail mix. Hyundai Green sales of 7,886 represented 12.5% of retail, up 6%. Hyundai had no fleet sales in the first half of 2022. <-- That is another noteworthy addition to this sales report.

    Hyundai Model June and Year-to-Date Sales Highlights

    Ioniq June sales were 0. That is correct, 0. I assume chips and materials allocated for the Ioniq lineup as it is going away are instead being used to produce the SUVs and Ioniq 5 BEV. YTD, sales of 3,662 were down 67% from the 11,107 sold through the same period of 2021. Its production was not scheduled to end until the end of June. :(

    Ioniq 5’s YTD sales of 13,692 is proving to be a highlight and with chip and material shortages easing, maybe, just maybe prices will become reasonable and sales in a more normal state will ensue. Read as no more markups.

    Tucson YTD sales of 84,071 were up 0.7% over the 83,517 sold during the first half of 2021.

    Hyundai Reports July 2022 Sales

    Hyundai reported July sales of 60,631 units, down 11.5% below the 68,500 sold in July of 2021.

    Highlights included the Tucson with sales of 14,278 vehicles, up 24.3 percent over the 11,483 sold in July of 2021.

    The excellent Sonata continues to drag on the results with 4,633 sold, down 56.5 percent from the 10,659 sol in July of 2021.

    The highly rated and award winning Ioniq 5 achieved sales of 1,978 in July. While there is no comparison to July of last year since it was not yet available, month over month can be. In July, sales reached 2,853. Is it material supply constraints or is demand cooling with Hyundai dealerships marking it up to the sky?

    Once again Hyundai has stopped building "and" stopped selling the entire Ioniq lineup as just 6 were sold nationwide in July. With fuel prices still averaging $4.18 nationwide, I am missing this particular fuel efficient offering. :(

    Ioniq stopped production last month.

    Keeping the HEV/PHEV/BEV around was deemed a confusion risk with the launch of the EV sub brand to customers.

    Hi Trollbait:

    Good point. 0 in June and 6 in July must mean they pulled the plug more than a few months ago?

    Which came first? The lack of supply or the lack of sales? Either way, it feels like there haven't been many available for sale for a long time, as I look through hybrid and EV inventory from time to time.

    Never ever saw an Ioniq PHEV for sale in my neck of the woods. A few HEV's , but never a PHEV.

    I've had to do some double takes with Elantras and Ioniqs. With there being a hybrid of the former, Hyundai likely isn't feeling much loss with the latter gone.

    And the Elantra Hybrid isn't bad. But I don't think it's a liftback. Prius wins.

    The only hatchback left on Hyundai's site is the Veloster N. If you don't want a sedan, it's a SUV.

    Technically, the Venue is just the box they shipped the Accent hatchback in. It's mostly Accent hatchback in the undercarriage but they seem to be using the 5 lug wheel hubs from the Elantra. They didn't lose much in city EPA relative to the Accent, but highway EPA got clobbered by the compromised drag coefficient and frontal area figures. Kudos to Hyundai for keeping it FWD and adding a "snow mode" knob to tweak the TCS to handle snow a bit better while saving the customer thousands in driveline hardware and added fuel costs just to have a second drive wheel activate in low traction conditions.

    The Venue isn't much different than the Accent hatch it replaced.
    It's almost a contender. But a step backwards from the Accent.
    I'm sure North American drivers are happy.

    That's pretty much what every OEM seems to be doing. Waiting out the storm , maximizing profits
    by building and selling only the most expensive trims that they think we will buy.

    I'm so glad I don't need to buy a car at this time.

    Just remember the 2004 Volvo I just drove had a winter mode button, and it was a 'basic' S40. Why hasn't this shown up in more models?

    I'm guessing the Eco mode setting will help people driving on snow or ice, but how many people will think of using it for those conditions?

    Every Honda I ever owned , manual and automatic , really needed a winter/snow driving mode.
    The last two Hondas I owned 2008 and 2014 , were very hard to get started without wheelspin.
    The 89 Civic Si weighe 2200 lbs and came with summer tires. They were next to useless in the snow.
    I didn't know this at the time.
    The Prius is always in Eco mode , but traction control still is active. When you have 'lectric motors the
    low-end torque means you need traction control.

    I was thinking the Eco mode pedal mapping would help the driver in getting slow starts and avoiding wheel spin.
    Every car has traction control now, but it can hinder more on snow and ice than help. Sometimes spin is unavoidable, and TC cutting power every time it happens means going no where.

    Yes, that’s for sure.
    For cars without the electronics, it helps to watch the hood & not let it rise at the very first light acceleration. If the front end rises, drivers are losing the MPG competition from the beginning.
