As electric vehicles become more mature, many joint venture brands have gradually faded from our lives. Even Hyundai, which used to be ubiquitous, has seen a decline in sales in recent years.

But has Hyundai’s sales really declined?

According to reports, Hyundai Motor Group sold 7.34 million vehicles globally in 2023, ranking third in the world.

This marks Hyundai’s second consecutive year in the global top three.

It is reported that Toyota Group topped the 2023 automotive sales chart, with Volkswagen Group coming in second.

Looking at the data, Hyundai still has a significant gap to surpass Volkswagen Group in the rankings.

In 2023, this South Korean automaker saw a sales growth rate of 6.7%. It lags behind Toyota (7.2%) in first place and Volkswagen (11.8%) in second.

Facing the continuous advancement of electrification, Hyundai Motor Group plans to boost its quantity by completing an electric vehicle factory in Georgia, USA.


Amid the price war that has just begun domestically, Beijing Hyundai has announced a direct price cut of 24,000 RMB for the Elantra model, bringing it down to a starting price of 75,800 RMB.

It is worth mentioning that Beijing Hyundai has also launched the slogan “More Powerful than Oil with Electricity,” indicating its determination to compete with new energy vehicles.

As for whether Hyundai’s sales can continue to grow, let’s wait and see together.
