Hyundai head thinks along with Kia they will sell 1 million EVs by 2025

The head of Hyundai Motor Group, Euisun Chung, believes that along with sister company Kia Motors, he expects to be selling 1 million electric vehicles (EVs) by 2025.

Chung made the claim during a televised video message on Tuesday, according to Reuters.

According to Business Korea, the two companies sold a combined 28,796 EVs in Q1 2020.

To reach that goal, Chung also revealed Hyundai is planning to launch a new EV in the coming years that will have an estimated driving range of 450km (279 miles) that can charge to full in 20 minutes or less.

Hyundai currently sells two electric vehicles, the Kona and the Ioniq. Kia also has two EVs on offer, the Soul EV and Niro EV.
