Days ago, Hyundai reached the milestone of having sold its 500,000th vehicle in the U.S. The South Korean carmaker targets sales of 530,000 units by the end of the year. Judging the rate that it’s selling its vehicles, there’s every likelihood that it will reach this goal.
Dave Zuchowski, executive vice president, National Sales, Hyundai Motor America, said that the company’s sales continue to increase as consumers become more aware of its “great products, high quality, the industry's best warranty, and improving dealership experience.”
Zuchowski expects that as the New Year approaches, its sales momentum will continue especially with its new model offering that includes the new Elantra, the first of four planned 40-mpg Hyundai vehicles in its lineup, and its premium luxury sedan, Equus, which have only just begun arriving at showrooms.
With all that’s going on, Zuchowsi goes on to describe Hyundai’s future as “bright” mostly because of its “product renaissance."
The models that fueled Hyundai’s sales the most include the Sonata, with 183,102 units sold, the Elantra, with 120,924 units sold and the Santa Fe that sold 72,082 vehicles.
