Hyundai Brand Highlights

Hyundai-branded vehicle sales increased by 3 percent, led again by a monthly SUV sales record that rose 17 percent compared with the prior year. This was the fourth month in a row Hyundai established a new monthly SUV sales mark, while retail SUV sales mix was 49 percent versus 38 percent last November. Tucson set a monthly record for the 21st month in a row, with a 3 percent increase and Kona reached nearly 6,000 units sold, its highest monthly total since going on sale in February. Sonata (up 2 percent), Veloster (up 9 percent) and Ioniq (up 12 percent), which also set a November sales record, were the other Hyundai models with improvements on the month.

“Hyundai’s product portfolio makeover of 10 all-new or redesigned models in 2018 are attracting consumers and resulting in sales growth in an industry we expect to be down slightly for the month,” said John Cook, director, Sales Operations, Hyundai Motor America. “We continue to focus on retail sales and with compelling offers during the Hyundai Holidays winter sales event we are aiming for an increase on the year. Going into 2019 with these new products and our new flagship premium three-row Palisade SUV that was launched at the Los Angeles Auto Show last week, we are building momentum and are poised to pick up market share.”
