Hyundai has announced its plans to invest about 95.5 trillion won ($79.21 billion) through this decade with special attention on the electric vehicle segment that will include investments worth 19.4 trillion won. Hyundai is aiming to achieve around 8 to 10 per cent of the global EV market share by 2040.

Hyundai is aggressively pursuing its electrification goals and trying out methods to expand this segment. In a previous report, Hyundai stated it will start its operations in Japan again and this time will only sell EVs. It plans to sell its electric vehicles online. The company's CEO Jaehoon Chang said it is developing its EV plans for the Japanese market carefully. He also said the South Korean automaker is aiming to sell 1.7 million EVs around the world by 2026 which will also include its other brands, Kia and Genesis.
