South Korean automotive giant Hyundai is one of the most important vehicle manufacturers in the world. Norway has a different meaning for the South Korean company, which has a very important market share in our country. Giving great importance to Norway, which has been one of the first countries to make important strategic decisions, Hyundai took the most important step in its electric car adventure in Norway for the first time.
According to the company’s statement, Hyundai will now sell only 100% electric vehicles in Norway. This means that from now on, the South Korean automotive giant will not sell any vehicles with internal combustion engines within the borders of this country.
Risky decision from Hyundai! Now it will only sell electric cars!
Of course, here comes the question of whether the decision in question also covers hybrid cars. The answer is a very clear yes, so Hyundai will not sell hybrid vehicles in this country.
In fact, the South Korean automotive giant ended its internal combustion vehicle sales in this country in 2020 and focused on producing 100% electric cars with only hybrid models. After the new decision announced today, the sale of hybrid models has also been terminated.
While Hyundai has made a first in the world by making this decision, German automotive giant Volkswagen will convert all car sales in Norway to fully electric models as of 2024.
