Hyundai Motor announces record sales on May with 339,205 units sold, up 13,6% compared with the same period last year. The korean automaker sold 59,214 units in the US-market last month, and 57,750 in the domestic market. Hyundai’s sales-to-date are up almost 30 percent as the carmaker is doing much better in the US than ever before.
Sales figures for the brand continued to climb through the month thanks to passenger cars like the Elantra and Sonata that made up most of the total sales for the month of May 2011.
With 22.754 and 20.006 units sold, bot cars remained the top-selling nameplates for Hyundai in the USA. Demand for the aged Santa Fe SUV remained quite high last month (6.671 units sold last month ). The all-new Tucson/ix35 crossover and Genesis Sedan recorded sales of 4.363 and 2.769, respectively.
