Hyundai breaks all-time November sales records

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Hyundai Motor America said Thursday that total sales in the month of November were up more than 22 percent after moving 49,610 units. The company's total retail sales increase was up 24 percent from the same point one year ago.

The car company, which builds its Sonata and Elantra models at a multi-million dollar plant in Montgomery, credited the Thanksgiving weekend and 'Black Friday' for strong sales numbers.

"With vehicle availability at the highest levels for the year, and with positive demand signals and improving consumer confidence, Hyundai is positioned for a very strong December finish to this record-breaking year," said Dave Zuchowski, Hyundai Motor America's executive vice president of national sales.

Hyundai is reporting sales figures up 21 percent over 2010 in total.

"Improving consumer demand and increased product availability at Hyundai dealers nationwide drive a positive December outlook for us," said John Krafcik, Hyundai Motor America's president and CEO. "While our 35 days-supply level today is low by most standards, it's the best we've seen at the start of a month for some time."
