Record Sales, Best August Ever for Hyundai Motor America

Sometimes Hyundai Motor America has a great sales month and sometimes, the South Korean automaker reports the best-ever sales for that particular month.

The latter is the case for August 2013 where Hyundai's U.S. division has reached a new all-time August record with a total of 66,101 new Hyundai models sold or leased during the month.  This figure represents an eight percent increase from August 2012.

"You always hear about the strong summer selling months but it's still particularly gratifying to experience it first hand, as we did in August, leveraging high consumer demand with a great lineup of products to continue our string of record- breaking volume months," says Dave Zuchowski, executive vice president of national sales. "We have good momentum, innovative marketing and incentive support, excellent inventory balance, and a steadily improving economic climate so we feel pretty bullish about the final four-month home stretch of 2013."1.

As has been the case lately, Hyundai's superstars, including the Santa Fe, Sonata and Elantra, were responsible for 75 percent of the total sales for August and collectively, were up 18 percent from the year, previous.

The Santa Fe, which remains an ever-popular crossover in Minneapolis and beyond saw a sales jump of 79 percent as compared to last August.
