Hyundai Brand Highlights

Hyundai-branded vehicle sales increased by 3 percent, led by the September record for SUV sales that grew 17 percent compared with the prior year. Tucson set another monthly record, the 19th month in a row, with a 5 percent increase. SUV retail sales in September represented 49 percent of total volume. Elantra again had another strong month, its fifth straight monthly increase, with sales growth of 38 percent. Veloster rounded out the Hyundai models with rising sales, up 9 percent year-over-year.

“Backed by strong performances from Tucson, Kona, Elantra and Veloster we were able to increase sales slightly in a month where we expected the overall industry to be down,” said John Angevine, director, National Sales, Hyundai Motor America. “The new models we’ve launched so far this year – Kona, Santa Fe, Veloster and a refreshed Elantra and Tucson – are hitting the sweet spot of what consumers are looking for. That’s also been supported by well-recognized industry awards we received in the month, including the most IIHS TSP+ and TSP rated vehicles in the entire industry.”
