By automotive-mag.com 3 Min Read

Kia America reported 65,929 vehicle sales in the United States in June, down 6.5% year-over-year. However, in the all-electric car segment, all signs were lit green as sales surged again.

In June, Kia’s all-electric car sales exceeded 5,000 units for the third consecutive time, reaching 5,738 units, according to InsideEVs’s calculations. That’s a 125% sales increase year-over-year. EVs represented 8.7% of the brand’s total volume in the U.S.

The data consists of 2,171 Kia EV6s, up 49% year-over-year; 1,905 Kia EV9s (a new model), as well as 1,662 Niro EVs, up 52% year-over-year.

Kia does not break out Niro EV sales from its gas-powered counterpart. But we can calculate the number as a difference between the total for the first half of the year and the official data for the previous periods.
