HYUNDAI CLOSES FIRST HALF OF 2007 WITH AN ALL-TIME RECORD

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., July 3, 2007 – Hyundai Motor America announced sales of 49,368 vehicles for the month, which was Hyundai’s all-time, anytime, record sales month. Hyundai sales are up 12 percent month-over-month and 11 percent over last June on the strength of the growing Hyundai model line up.

Hyundai’s all-new 2007 Santa Fe continued it strong pace with an increase over June 2006 of 37 percent, followed closely by Sonata which experienced a 28 percent sales increase. Our 2007 fuel-efficient Elantra kept the momentum going in its segment increasing sales 8 percent over June 2006, along with the Entourage that more than doubled its sales over the same period last year.

“It was the most successful sales first half in Hyundai’s history,” said Dave Zuchowski, vice president, National Sales, Hyundai Motor America. “Our second quarter sales rebounded strongly and resulted in first half sales which were up 1 percent over record 2006 levels. We are encouraged by this strong momentum and are well positioned for continued growth in the second half.”
