Due to a global battery supply shortage available inventory may not be sufficient to fill all outstanding 18MY sold orders.

Further, the Hyundai Motor America spokesman allowed that the battery shortage may affect production of the upcoming Kona electric. :roll:

Yeah, saw that yesterday. As I said in other threads, I've paid 0 attention to the Niro and Kona buzz since I remained very skeptical about the vehicles given the near vaporware status of the Ioniq Electric in the US.

I thought that the Ioniq EV's ElseWare status was because of Trump's election and the change in the political climate. Maybe it was both...

That sucks for Hyundai. The Ioniq is a great BEV and I know lots of folks who want one.

Hope they figure it out soon.
