By starting production of the popular pure-electric Kona Electric SUV at its Czech plant, as well as in South Korea, Hyundai is able to reduce waiting times for the model.
The Kona EV, a compact SUV, offers a range of 278 miles at a price of around £38,000 and as a result proved popular enough to generate a one-year waiting list. Thanks to the increased production, Hyundai will be able to better meet demand.
Ashley Andrew, MD of Hyundai Motor UK, said: "The Hyundai Kona Electric has achieved outstanding success in the UK since its introduction, with demand for the model quickly outstripping supply. We have listened to our customers and are significantly ramping-up availability in order to cut delivery times, a move that we hope will encourage more people to consider a fully electric car."
