SEOUL, Nov. 1, 2021 – Hyundai Motor Company today announced global sales results for October 2021. The company sold 307,039 units globally last month, a decrease of 20.7% from a year earlier.

The company sold 249,226 units outside of Korea, down 22.5% from a year earlier. Sales in Korea decreased 12% Y/y to 57,813 units.

The overall decrease mainly resulted from disruption in the semiconductor part supply around the globe and the impact caused by COVID-19.

Moreover, the company will make every effort to recover its sales by strengthening the growth of IONIQ 5 BEV and the Genesis luxury brand lineup.
