Hyundai Motor America Reports Record January Sales
COSTA MESA, Calif., Feb. 1, 2013
COSTA MESA, Calif., Feb. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Coming off a record 2012
sales year, Hyundai ^ Motor America today announced a continuation of that
momentum by setting a new all-time record for January sales with 43,713 units,
up 2.4 percent versus 2012.
Improved availability on key volume vehicles at Hyundai dealers across the
nation played a substantial role in achieving yet another all-time monthly
sales record. Fleet mix was 15 percent for the month.
The same trend held true with Hyundai Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicle sales
as 2012's record January was immediately eclipsed this year with a best ever
5,393 CPO units, up 16.8 percent versus 2012.
"Despite some lingering economic concerns, January turned out to be a solid
first month for us," said Dave Zuchowski, executive vice president, national
sales. "The all-new Santa Fe Sport, recently named Best New Crossover in
Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine and the Elantra GT, Best New Car Under
$20,000, both continue to do quite well with the Santa Fe selling 5,991, and
the Elantra family totaling 12,174, up 24.4 percent and 11.7 percent,
respectively, over the same period last year. We look forward to adding the
all-new seven passenger Santa Fe to our line-up next month, allowing growing
families an opportunity to experience the Hyundai brand."
"We've got a solid foundation going into the new year," said John Krafcik,
president and CEO, Hyundai Motor America. "We've got a great line-up of
vehicles and we're looking forward to Super Bowl Sunday when we'll share with
upwards of 110 million viewers our all-new Santa Fe, our premium Genesis sedan
and the surprising Sonata 2.0T."
