- Total sales up 15 percent, retail sales up 19 percent
- North American Car of the Year – Hyundai Elantra
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Feb. 1, 2012 – HyundaiMotor America today announced all-time record January sales of 42,694 units, up 15 percent versus 2011.
Despite continued tight availability at Hyundai dealers across the nation, January retail sales were up 19 percent from last year due to continued strong performance throughout the Hyundai line-up, with the hot-selling Elantra up 13 percent and Genesis/Equus sales up 27 percent over last year. Fleet mix remains low at nine percent as the focus remains on optimizing dealer throughput and meeting consumer demand given ongoing production capacity constraints.
“January was a good month for us as Januarys go. We set an all-time sales record for the month, saw continued stabilization in the general economy, and witnessed the Hyundai Elantra crowned as North American Car of the Year,” said Dave Zuchowski, Hyundai Motor America’s executive vice president, national sales. “All in all, a very solid base to build off in 2012.”
