Hyundai Motor America
announced an all-time February sales record of 52,311 units; up two percent
over last year's all-time record February and up a similar amount for the year.
"February was another record month for Hyundai – we had a terrific
President's Day weekend event to kick off the spring selling season, much
improved inventory levels, and great access to credit available to a broader
band of buyers," said Dave Zuchowski, executive vice president of sales. "Our
performance was led by the all-new Santa Fe Sport and the award winning
Elantra, both of which saw double-digit sales gains over 2012."
The all-new Santa Fe saw a 64 percent increase over the same period
last year and is up 42 percent year-to-date. The Elantra, which was recognized
as a "top car pick" as best budget car by a highly regarded consumer magazine
earlier this week, posted year-over-year gains for February of 17 percent and
is up 15 percent for the year. Sales to rental accounts and government agencies
accounted for 15 percent of the February volume.
Hyundai Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicles also recorded a best-ever volume
month with 5,627 sales, up nine percent versus 2012. Full year CPO volume of
11,020 units is up 12 percent versus 2012.
"Our biggest-ever Super Bowl and Academy Awards presence drove great
interest in the Hyundai brand, especially the all-new Santa Fe. The all-new
seven-passenger version of the Santa Fe will begin hitting showrooms shortly
after our media introduction this month, adding to the strength of our
crossover line-up," said John Krafcik, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor
America. Santa Fe was recently recognized by U.S. News and World Report as the
"Best 3-Row Midsize SUV for the Money."
