Improved availability on key volume vehicles at Hyundai dealers across the nation played a substantial role in achieving yet another all-time monthly sales record. Fleet mix was 15 percent for the month.

The same trend held true with Hyundai Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicle sales as 2012′s record January was immediately eclipsed this year with a best ever 5,393 CPO units, up 16.8 percent versus 2012.

“Despite some lingering economic concerns, January turned out to be a solid first month for us,” said Dave Zuchowski, executive vice president, national sales. “The all-new Santa Fe Sport, recently named Best New Crossover in Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine and the Elantra GT, Best New Car Under $20,000, both continue to do quite well with the Santa Fe selling 5,991, and the Elantra family totaling 12,174, up 24.4 percent and 11.7 percent, respectively, over the same period last year. We look forward to adding the all-new seven passenger Santa Fe to our line-up next month, allowing growing families an opportunity to experience the Hyundai brand.”

“We’ve got a solid foundation going into the new year,” said John Krafcik, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor America. “We’ve got a great line-up of vehicles and we’re looking forward to Super Bowl Sunday when we’ll share with upwards of 110 million viewers our all-new Santa Fe, our premium Genesis sedan and the surprising Sonata 2.0T.”
