Hyundai Brand Highlights

Hyundai’s gains came from across the lineup with its SUV products again leading the way. Total SUV sales were up 37 percent, exceeding 30,000 units for the first time ever and establishing an all-time record for the fourth month in a row. Tucson continues to be a standout with sales up 62 percent, selling 16,173 units, its highest monthly total ever, and the fourth consecutive month with an all-time high. Tucson’s monthly record also continued for the 16th month in a row. The all-new Kona had a strong month as well, selling 4,240 units.

The rest of Hyundai’s core lineup also performed well in June. Elantra sales increased by 34 percent, Sonata was up 5 percent and Ioniq grew by 7 percent. The all-new Veloster began entering dealerships, driving sales up 6 percent. Hyundai’s CPO program, named the top non-luxury CPO program in the industry by Autotrader, also had a good month with sales increasing by 7 percent.

“June was a well-rounded month for Hyundai, achieving both overall and retail sales growth and seeing gains in our key sedan segments and SUVs,” said John Angevine, director, National Sales, Hyundai Motor America. “The realignment of Hyundai’s lineup is beginning to take hold with SUV sales reaching nearly half of our total volume. With the all-new Santa Fe coming later this summer, consumers are recognizing the strength of our SUV products and our dealers are delivering in communicating the versatility of our lineup to meet any need.”
