Hyundai sales growth shows no signs of slowing

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Hyundai Motor Company could have copy/pasted its sales reports from previous months and no one would have known any difference. The numbers are out again, and they show another month of double-digit sales increases.

September was yet another month for all time sales records: 52,051 vehicles were sold, many built on assembly line in Montgomery, Ala.

The company says September clocked-in a 12 percent total sales increase compared with the same period a year ago, and a 16 percent retail sales increase over last September.

"Finishing September with such strong momentum is no small feat, especially considering the disappointing economic climate," said Dave Zuchowski, Hyundai Motor America's executive vice president of national sales. "Consumer demand remained strong, vehicle availability improved, and we've added yet another entry to our family of standard 40 MPG fuel economy vehicles with the all-new Veloster."

Year to date, Hyundai says its sales are up 20 percent versus 2010 in total, and up 31 percent at retail. Sales to fleet accounts represent 11 percent of the total sales year-to-date and just 10 percent for the month of September. Thirty-seven percent of Hyundai vehicles sold in September achieved 40 MPG fuel economy ratings.
