Hyundai Elantra Sets All-Time Sales Record

COSTA MESA, Calif., Dec. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Hyundai Motor America announced the Hyundai Elantra, ALG's compact car residual value leader for three straight years, has set another all-time sales record in 2012, surpassing last year's total of 186,361 units earlier this month. With a week left in the year, Elantra could become Hyundai's second model to break the 200,000 unit mark in annual sales, joining its big brother Sonata at that level, which is also built at Hyundai's assembly in Alabama.

"Adding the third shift to our plant in Alabama this year has allowed us to better meet demand for Elantra," said John Krafcik, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor America. "Elantra buyers love its recipe of ALG-class-leading residual value, bold design, and outstanding value. With a full year of three-shift U.S. production in 2013 we hope to introduce even more American car buyers to Elantra next year."
