Hyundai sets new record with April sales

May 2, 2013 12:00 AM

Hyundai had a record-setting month in April. The manufacturer sold 63,315 vehicles during the month, a 2 percent increase from the same time last year. Even more impressively, sales of some of its most popular models posted huge gains, as the sales of the Elantra increased 45 percent, the Azera grew 48 percent and the Santa Fe went up 10 percent. 

"Through the first four months of the year, HMA has shattered its all-time volume mark, and with strong economic signals, improving availability and a historically strong selling season directly in front of us, we fully expect to continue this record-setting trend for the first six months of the year," said Dave Zuchowski, an executive vice president with Hyundai. 

As Hyundai continues to revamp its offerings with redesigns and other amenities, sales should rise. The automaker recently announced the launch of its Assurance Connected Care, which will act as a warranty for auto repair dealing with connectivity features. Starting May 16, almost all Hyundai models will have a standard of three-years of this care - an addition that should be attractive to many drivers.
