My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.
Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

UK SALES SEPT - Hyundai Motor UK is celebrating its strongest ever sales month, which saw it achieve the highest sales recorded by any Hyundai European subsidiary

Hyundai Motor UK is celebrating its strongest ever sales month, which saw it achieve the highest sales recorded by any Hyundai European subsidiary.
In September, Hyundai Motor UK sales were up 9.6% year on year, in a market up just over 1%, while retail sales were up 11.5%, a figure made all the more impressive given that the market has declined by 3.4%.
Across all end user channels, sales were up 14% year on year with a total of 17,090 vehicles sold.
The strong sales results can, in part, be attributed to the company’s expanding and young range of vehicles. In September, it was the i10 city car, offering an award-winning package of design, space, technology, efficiency and safety, which achieved the most retail sales. The Tucson took the top spot both in fleet sales and overall, with its striking design and outstanding space, comfort and safety.
Tony Whitehorn, President and CEO at Hyundai Motor UK said: “We are delighted to announce such strong sales figures for September, which are a testament to our strategy of delivering total customer value throughout the buying and ownership process.
“We continually focus on how we can improve our offering for consumers, whether that be embracing the process of digitalisation throughout our dealer network or the development of new models, such as the new generations of the i10 and i30 which recently made their public debuts at the Paris Motor Show. This approach has helped us to deliver this sales growth in a very competitive market and we hope it will continue to enable us to not only retain current customers but also attract new ones.”
