Last year, eco-friendly car exports began to gain momentum after the launch of new electric vehicles such as the Ioniq 5 and EV6.

43,000 units of the Ioniq 5 released in April and 18,000 units of the EV6 released in August were sold overseas, accounting for one-third of the total electric vehicle exports.

Hybrid cars accounted for about 210,000 units and electric vehicles with 154,000 units, and eco-friendly cars accounted for 20% of the total automobile exports.

The number of automobile exports increased by 8.6% and the amount by 24.2% from a year ago, but it is the first time in 9 years since 2012 that both the number and value of automobiles increased.

In the domestic market, the total number of cars sold decreased compared to a year ago, but eco-friendly cars increased by 54%, accounting for more than 20% of the total.

In particular, electric vehicle sales doubled, while hybrid sales increased by 36%, while internal combustion engine vehicles decreased by 17%.

In Europe, the sales of electric vehicles recorded 176,000 units in December last year, surpassing diesel cars for the first time in history.

This year, domestic automakers plan to launch new electric vehicles one after another to preoccupy the overseas market.

However, securing automotive semiconductors is still expected to be the biggest variable in this process.
