HYUNDAI MOTOR AMERICA REPORTS MAY SALES

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., June 2, 2015 – Hyundai Motor America today reported May sales of 63,610 units, down 10 percent compared with its record-setting month of May 2014. Year-to-date sales of 303,648 units are up two percent for the year.

“May proved to be a bit difficult for us as it appears more customers were out looking for big trucks and SUVs than cars,” said Bob Pradzinski, vice-president National Sales, Hyundai Motor America. “With that said, we’re putting plans in place to make sure our dealers are best equipped to get the right mix of vehicles into customers’ hands during the popular summer selling months.”

Bright spots for the month were Elantra, Genesis sedan and Sonata Hybrid, up seven, 18 and 40 percent, respectively.
