 Hyundai Canada recognizes Mississauga Hyundai as its 'number one' dealership  MARKHAM, ON, Jan. 23, 2014 /CNW/ - Hyundai Auto Canada Corp. today presented  an award to Mississauga Hyundai for the dealership's exceptional sales and  fundraising performance in 2013. With sales of 1,990 vehicles and $22,063  raised in support of the national Hyundai Hockey Helpers (HHH) initiative,  Mississauga led all Canadian Hyundai dealerships in both metrics.  "Mississauga Hyundai's accomplishments in 2013 demonstrate that sales success  and community engagement truly go hand-in-hand," said Steve Kelleher,  President and CEO of Hyundai Auto Canada Corp. "The dedication of partners  like [Dealer Principal] Nav Bhatia and his Mississauga dealership has helped  cement Hyundai's position as a leader in the Canadian automotive industry.  This challenging spirit is reflected in every Hyundai vehicle and every  Hyundai dealer across Canada."  Mississauga Hyundai's year-end sales total of 1,990 new vehicles represents an  increase of 5 percent over their 2012 result. In second and third place by  total 2013 sales volume were Quebec dealerships Hyundai Gabriel (Montreal) and  Hyundai de Mascouche who ended the year with sales of 1,965 and 1,769  vehicles, respectively.  The $22,063 raised by Mississauga Hyundai in support of Hyundai Hockey Helpers  will be used to help deserving children in the Mississauga area play hockey  this year. With an incredible 47-percent increase over their 2012 fundraising  result, Mississauga Hyundai was the country's top fundraising dealership for  the second consecutive year. Run in partnership with KidSport, the HHH program  provides grants to deserving kids nation-wide to subsidize the cost of hockey  equipment and league registration fees. In 2013, Hyundai Canada and its  network of 210 dealerships donated an estimated $1-million to provide grants  for the 2013/2014 and 2014/2015 seasons.  Karl Subban, Hyundai Hockey Helpers Ambassador and father of Montreal  Canadiens Defenceman P.K. Subban, expressed his gratitude for the dealership's  efforts: "It's rewarding to see a local business giving back to the community  in such a profound manner. In addition to the positive health benefits of  physical activity, organized sport teaches important lessons about teamwork,  commitment, and the value of hard work. Thanks to the efforts of dealerships  like Mississauga Hyundai, the HHH initiative is investing in future of  children across Canada."  HYUNDAI AUTO CANADA CORP.
