Default Toyota Prius Dramatically Outselling "Prius Killer" Rivals Hyundai Ioniq and Kia Niro

Now that the newcomers have had time to get established in the marketplace, it's time to face reality. The Prius is still the dominant affordable green car in America.





When Hyundai and Kia teamed up to create two model lines directly targeted at the Toyota Prius the media was almost joyful. Finally, a chance to report on what could be the Prius' downfall.

Here are some example headlines from the period when the new Ioniq and Niro were released:
- CarBuzz: The Kia Niro Hybrid Crossover Is The New Toyota Prius Killer
- The Verge: This is Hyundai's Prius killer, the Ioniq
- 95 Octane: 2017 Hyundai Ioniq Could Be a Real Prius Killer

We could keep going, but we think you get the point. Now that the two models have been on sale more than long enough to be completely marketed and to have mature production lines how are they doing? Here is a listing of the year to date sales through the end of May of all three model lines. Keep in mind that each includes all the variants of the models (plug-ins, EVs, hybrids, etc.)
