Hyundai Brand Highlights
Both Hyundai SUV and car models achieved gains for the month. The reimagined SUV portfolio continues to gain traction as Tucson set its 17th consecutive monthly sales record with a 1 percent improvement compared with last year. Kona sales again exceeded 4,000 units as it continues to turn quickly and gain market share in the growing entry SUV segment. Rounding out the SUVs, sales of the all-new 2019 Santa Fe began in the month. The completely redesigned model offers consumers an all-new family-oriented interior, practical cutting-edge technologies and bold exterior looks.
In the car segments, Elantra sales were up 4 percent and the all-new Veloster, which was recently named an Editor’s Choice by Car and Driver, drove increased demand with sales up 13 percent.
“We are pleased that Hyundai retail sales were up slightly year-over-year despite two less selling days and one less sales weekend, in an industry we anticipate will be down for the month,” said John Angevine, director, National Sales, Hyundai Motor America. “SUV mix has taken hold at nearly 50 percent of our volume and we expect that number to increase as inventory of Santa Fe hits dealers in bigger numbers.”
