Hyundai-auto-sales-statistics-EuropeHyundai sales, and sales of its sister brand Kia, have gone exactly the opposite direction of most of its European mainstream competitors like Ford, Opel, Fiat and Citroën, rising steadily from 2009 through 2012, with market share rising accordingly until 2013 when Hyundai lost sales and market share as the overall market started its recovery in 2014. The brand recovered in 2015 and 2106 to reach record sales in Europe of almost 500.000 sales, although market share was still below the 2012 peak.

Hyundai’s formerly best selling model, the i30 compact car will be replaced in 2017, it was overtaken in 2014 by both the ix35 SUV, also renewed in 2011, and the i20 subcompact, both of which were renewed in 2015, as the ix35 was renamed Tucson, like its predecessor. The Tucson achieved record sales in 2016 with almost 150.000 units. Other new models introduced in recent years include the i40 midsized sedan and station wagon to replace the uncompetitive Sonata in 2011, the ix20 small MPV in 2010 and two coupe models: the Veloster in 2011 and the unsuccessful Genesis coupe in 2010.

The Genesis coupe is one of Hyundai’s few commercial failures, as it has barely sold 3.300 units in the 5 years it has been on the European market. The coupe segment in Europe is smaller than in America, and when Europeans buy coupes, they tend to prefer those of premium brands over mainstream brands, let alone a Korean mainstream brand. The Genesis luxury sedan faced a similar fate, with just 364 sales in its first two years. In 2015, the company announced that it would spin off its Genesis sub-brand to become a stand alone premium player which should help in the US and China, but the brand is doomed in Europe, where Cadillac, Lexus and Infiniti are still struggling to make a mark.

The i10 minicar has been replaced by a new generation in the third quarter of 2013 and has benefited with sales bouncing up in the following years, but heavier competition in the segment, and the rebound of the Italian market, Europe’s largest minicar market but not for the i10, make it difficult for the i10 to return to 100.000+ sales as in 2009. The i20 subcompact hatchback shows stable sales and the new generation climbed to almost 100.000 sales in 2016. That same year the Ioniq was launched, the first car in the world available with three different electrified drivetrains: hybrid, plug-in hybrid and full electric, although the Plug-In will follow in 2017.
