COSTA MESA, Calif., July 2, 2013

COSTA MESA, Calif., July 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Hyundai ^ Motor America today
announced sales of 65,007 units, up two percent versus the same period in 2012
and up one percent the first six months of the year.


"June was another record-breaking sales month for us in what has been a strong
first half of the year," said Dave Zuchowski, executive vice president of
national sales. "We clearly felt the impact of the summer selling surge and
our improved availability of award-winning vehicles was perfectly timed.
Important third-party accolades, such as Genesis taking J.D. Power's trophy
for highest initial quality in the midsize premium car segment and the all-new
Santa Fe being named Automobile Magazine's Family Crossover for 2013, also
continue to build strong momentum for our brand."

"With all of our plants continuing to operate at maximum capacity, sales of
the U.S.-built Elantra soared 26 percent over June 2012," said John Krafcik,
president and CEO of Hyundai Motor America. "Our Hyundai Assurance Connected
Care program, now free for three years on most Hyundai models, continues to
draw customers to our website and showrooms."

Fleet mix registered about 19 percent for the month. Certified Pre-Owned
vehicle sales were 6,775 a June record, up 7.5 percent over June 2012.
