Hyundai-Kia Among Global Top 10 in EV Sales for 1st Time - The Chosun Ilbo (English Edition): Daily News from Korea - Business > Business
"Hyundai and affiliate Kia have been included in the world's top 10 electric vehicle makers for the first time after they entered the market in 2012.

The automakers sold a combined 90,860 EVs worldwide last year, ranking eighth in the world, market researcher EV Volumes said last week. They rose dramatically compared to 47,000 in 2017 and 13,000 in 2016."

EDIT: Hyundai / Kia's EV Sales:

2015 . 8,561
2016 12,992
2017 47,000
2018 90,860
That's better than I thought, but they and the rest of the industry still have a ways to go.

On the plus side, Tesla pushing their costs/margins down should force other manufacturers to discount their EVs to compete, and the ultimate loser in that situation are ICEs.
