Hyundai sees surge in IONIQ 5 purchase orders in Indonesia
SEOUL-- Hyundai Motor Co. said Sunday it has bagged purchase orders for more than 1,500 of the all-electric IONIQ 5 in Indonesia within about a week after its official release in the Southeast Asian country.

The amount of purchase orders marks double the number of entire EVs sold in Indonesia for all of last year, reflecting the growing popularity and demand in the country, according to Hyundai.

Last year, Hyundai sold 605 IONIQ and Kona EVs in Indonesia, representing 87 percent of the market share in the country.
