HYUNDAI MOTOR AMERICA REPORTS ITS BEST JANUARY EVER

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Feb. 2, 2016 – Hyundai Motor America today reported its best January in company history, selling 45,011 units for the month, up one percent versus the same period last year.

“We were able to capitalize on demand in the crossover segment with Tucson sales soaring 72 percent for the month,” said Derrick Hatami, vice president of national sales for Hyundai Motor America. “We’re poised to grab more of this segment as we introduce our refreshed Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport models next week at the Chicago Auto Show. Additionally, the all-new 2017 Elantra has begun hitting showrooms and based on the positive media response at our launch last week, we expect to see great things from Elantra in 2016.”

Other standouts include Veloster with sales up 55 percent; Sonata up 23 percent (both, best January ever); and Accent, up 14 percent for the month.
