Hyundai Sets Highest US Sales Record of All Time

Hitting a new record for the month of November, and with a few weeks to go, hit a new overall record for the year, Hyundai seems to be doing something right.  This news was announced on Tuesday, December 3rd on Twitter by Hyundai Motor America CEO John Krafcik who confirms that the Korean automaker’s US division had moved 645,692 units for 2012 so far, “breaking out all-time sales record set last year.” Thanks in part to the addition of two new models the Elantra Coupe and Elantra GT, sales were strong for the Sonata, and the Elantra, which saw an increase of 28 percent in November.

“The month’s Black Friday sales period also helped,” said Dave Zuchowski, HMA‘s executive vice president of sales. “We were also very encouraged by the strong sales recovery experienced in those northeastern regions that were ravaged by Super Storm Sandy and expect continued momentum there for the balance of the year,” he said in a statement.

With the recently launched Santa Fe crossover as well as the Santa Fe long wheelbase model, which had its debut at the LA Auto Show last week, Hyundai will look to continue to grow sales in the new year.
