Hyundai IONIQ 5 and IONIQ 6 set new Q2 US sales records as EV hot streak continues


Hyundai is showing no signs of slowing down in the US EV market after a record-breaking second quarter. The Hyundai IONIQ 5 and IONIQ 6 both set new Q2 sales records as demand for long-range EVs at an affordable price continues to climb in the US.

Hyundai IONIQ 5 tops Q2 sales record in the US

After setting a new May sales record, Hyundai’s electric SUV continued its hot streak last month. Hyundai sold 3,755 IONIQ 5 models in the US last month (+20% YOY), a new June record.

Although it’s down slightly from the 4,449 sold in May, the growth was enough to push Hyundai’s IONIQ 5 to a new Q2 sales record. Hyundai sold 11,906 IONIQ 5s in the second quarter of 2024, up 51% from the 7,905 handed over at this time last year.

Hyundai has now sold 18,728 IONIQ 5 models through the first half of 2024, an increase of 37% over last year.

The IONIQ 5 wasn’t Hyundai’s only EV with a new sales record. With 3,266 models sold (+8% YOY), Hyundai’s IONIQ 6 also set a new Q2 sales record. Hyundai’s overall EV sales climbed 15% in Q2.

The news comes after Kia set a new Q2 EV sales record as demand for its three-row EV9 and low-cost EV6 continues climbing.

Hyundai Motor America CEO Randy Parker said the strong demand for the IONIQ 5 helped drive growth in Q2.

In a recent interview with Electrek, Parker told us Hyundai is “humble and hungry” to distance itself from the EV pack and close the gap with Tesla.

Parker explained that Hyundai is giving buyers confidence to go electric with long-range, fast-charging EVs at an affordable price. Hyundai has six of the top ten most fuel-efficient EVs in the US this year by trim.
