Ahead of World EV Day on 9 September, Hyundai is taking extra steps to raise awareness of electric cars
Ahead of this year’s World EV Day, Hyundai has pledged to help raise awareness of electric cars.
A successful first seven months of 2021 has seen Hyundai sell more than 5,700 battery electric cars in the UK.
This represents an impressive 93 percent increase, aided by the Korean company’s expanded range of electric models.
To help continue this upward trend, Hyundai has a range of activities planned throughout September.
These include Hyundai Motor UK managing director, Ashley Andrew, acting as a keynote speaker at the 2021 EV Summit. Bringing together business leaders in the electric vehicle industry, the event will explore how battery power can be advanced further.
Hyundai will also exhibit at the Fully Charged Live show, which takes place from 3 to 5 September at Farnborough International.
With the arrival of the new Ioniq 5, every model in the Hyundai range bar one now features an electrified option.
This month will also see Hyundai acting as the eMobility Partner for World EV Day 2021.
The inaugural World EV Day in 2020 saw more than 1.9 billion people take note of the event, with over 200 million impressions made on social media. For 2021 the organisers are aiming to raise even greater awareness.
As part of World EV Day, businesses will be asked to consider how they integrate electric vehicles into their operations. Private drivers will be able to make a pledge that their next car will be battery-powered.
