SEOUL, Sep. 2, 2019 – Hyundai Motor Company today announced global sales results for
August 2019, which totaled 363,045 units.

Korea Sales
Domestic sales recorded a 9.7 percent year-on-year decrease, totalling 52,897 units. The
all-new Sonata maintained its sales momentum with 8,393 units, while Grandeur (Azera)
and Avante (Elantra) sales also remained solid with 5,547 and 4,893 units, respectively.

Hyundai’s SUV lineup tallied 18,167 units sold in Korea, including 6,858 units for the popular
Santa Fe models and 3,701 for the brand new entry SUV Venue.

For markets other than Korea, sales decreased by 5.5 percent from the same month in
2018, totaling 310,148 units sold. Tucson led all models with 41,421 units sold. The
decrease in sales overseas was mainly due to weak demand in emerging markets,
including China and Russia.

Hyundai expects the Palisade, Venue and other recently launched SUV models to continue
their sales growth, while the company additionally introduces new models tailored to meet
customers’ demands.
