HYUNDAI MOTOR AMERICA REPORTS APRIL 2007 SALES

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., May 1, 2007 -- Hyundai Motor America today reported April sales of 39,137. The all-new 2007 Santa Fe showed strong gains over the previous year, posting an 85 percent increase. However, sales were down 4.6 percent from Hyundai’s record April sales in 2006.

“The industry continues to be very competitive,” said Dave Zuchowski, Hyundai’s vice president of national sales. “We are encouraged with the sales increase of our all-new 2007 Santa Fe and our premium sedan Azera and are confident our sales growth will continue across all models, despite the fact overall consumer spending is down for the first quarter of 2007.”

Hyundai buyers are protected by a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, a 5-year/60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, a 7-year/unlimited-mile anti-perforation warranty and 5-year/unlimited-mile roadside assistance protection.
