Commenting on the figures, Stephen Gleeson (Managing Director, Hyundai Ireland) said:
“We are delighted with our January figures, the Tucson being Ireland’s best-selling car is a tremendous accolade. We believe the success of the Tucson comes not just from its brilliant design but also from our dealers being able to offer genuine advice to consumers as to what is the right engine for their needs given that we sell PHEV, Diesel and Hybrid in the Tucson. Hyundai now have Irelands best-selling PHEV, electric and diesel cars. One significant trend we have noticed is the move away from Hybrid to actual Electric cars or PHEV as evidenced by the 16% fall in Hybrid Sales in a Market that is 10% ahead.”
