Inability? If Hyundai "shows the money", they will suddenly be "able". It suggests EV isn't their top priority at the moment, probably because it isn't the most profitable thing for them to be doing.

What non-Chinese (always capitalized because the rules of English require nouns to be capitalized) has EVs accounting for a sizable portion of their sales except Tesla?

My point is that all EV manufacturers suffer the same problem; that batteries carry significant shortcomings compared to a gas tank.
