Hyundai cites bad weather for down sales in Feb. '14

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Hyundai Motor America says its February sales of 49,003 were down six percent from the same period one year ago but are still up 11 percent over January.

"I don't like to make excuses, but the awful weather we saw across the country really hurt traffic to our dealerships and ultimately kept our sales at a pace well below what we were expecting," said Bob Pradzinski, vice president of sales. "They say ‘If you want to see the sunshine you have to weather the storm,' so we're all looking forward to some sunshine in March."

Despite a tough month, Hyundai saw sales of its two smallest cars, Accent and Veloster, up 20 percent and two CUVs, Santa Fe and Tucson, up 12 percent.

Sales of the Montgomery built Sonata were down 30 percent from the same time last year, while the Elantra was up one percent.
