Hyundai's Montgomery plant optimistic over sales incentive

There's optimism at Hyundai Motor's Alabama operations over the company's new sales incentive.

Spokesman Robert Burns says the incentive -- a guaranteed rate of $1.49 per gallon of gas for one year or 12,000 miles -- offers a degree of certainty in these uncertain times.

The Korean automaker says it will guarantee the price for one year for consumers who buy most Hyundai vehicles between July 1 and August 31.

The Hyundai operation at Montgomery has had workers on four-day weeks this year. But following the Fourth of July, workers will resume a five-day work week.
