HYUNDAI SET TO BREAK ALL-TIME SALES RECORD IN MARCH

  • Fifty percent jump in 40-mpg sales

COSTA MESA, Calif., March 29, 2012 - On the strength of a rapidly recovering new vehicle industry, Hyundai is poised to shatter its all-time record for monthly sales volume led by its stable of 40-mpg highway vehicles like Accent, Veloster M/T, Elantra and hybrid Sonata. Hyundai, the most fuel-efficient automaker in America according to the EPA, expects to sell more than 65,000 vehicles this month, a sign of an improving auto industry and unsurpassed demand for Hyundai’s high mileage line-up.

“March is shaping up to be our best sales month ever,” said Dave Zuchowski, Hyundai Motor America’s executive vice president of national sales. “We expect to sell 50 percent more of our 40-mpg highway vehicles than we sold in March 2011 as customers recognized that Hyundai is the place to shop for the best selection of high mileage cars.”
