USA SALES FEBRUARY - HYUNDAI/GENESIS - Records tumble again for the two brands.

Hyundai Motor America today announced its best February ever, with sales totaling 53,020 for the month, which considering they sold just 11 cars more than a year ago, is a little bit of a push for them to state record sales, Genesis produced a decent amount of sales for the group, although this means that Hyundai branded cars dipped.

The Elantra produced a decent increase in sales, but the higher end luxury models had a large decrease, along with a number of the other models within the range.


Hyundai Division posts sales of 51,438 units
“The Santa Fe and Elantra families continued their strong performances in February, up 58 and 33 percent, respectively,” said Derrick Hatami, vice president of national sales for Hyundai Motor America.



Genesis Division posts sales of 1,582 units
“We’re still experiencing strong demand for G90,” said Erwin Raphael, general manager of Genesis in the U.S. market.
