Hyundai IONIQ 5 electric SUV sales soar 203% in record-setting September


The Hyundai IONIQ 5’s hot streak continues in the US, with sales of the electric SUV soaring 203% in September, setting a new record.

“We are in great shape to finish the year strong with our all-new Kona and increased sales from our IONIQ lineup of electric vehicles,” explained Randy Parker, CEO of Hyundai Motor America, on Tuesday.

Hyundai’s high-flying IONIQ 5 sales advanced by 203% YOY in September, hitting record sales with 3,958 units.

In the third quarter, Hyundai sold 11,665 IONIQ 5 EVs (+143%), also a record. IONIQ 5 sales have now reached 25,306 through the first nine months of 2023.

Hyundai IONIQ 5 electric SUV sales have continued trending higher all year. Despite a slight dip in August from July, the electric SUV is gaining momentum.

Hyundai began a new promo on September 21, where new EV buyers get a free ChargePoint Level 2 home charger (see review) and installation credit. Between the $529 MSRP for the charger and the $600 installation credit, buyers can lock in over $1,100 in savings.
