FOUNTAIN VALLEY, CA (WSFA) -

Hyundai Motor America is reporting a that the month of January 2014 was the best in company history with a total of 44,005 units sold. The record came even as sales were up less than one percent over the same time period a year prior.

"While year-over-year sales were up slightly, January was a bit of a challenge due to weather issues across the country, making us wonder how many more units we could have sold," said Bob Pradzinski, vice president, national sales.

Pradzinski said dealers remained stocked with a full lineup of products despite a shutdown in production at its Montgomery, Alabama plant due to last week's crippling ice storm. The Montgomery plant produces the Elantra and Sonata sedans.

The company's sales leaders include the Accent, Elantra and Santa Fe with sales up 21, 26 and 12 percent, respectively.
