SEOUL, May 2, 2019 – Hyundai Motor Company announced today global sales results for April 2019, during which a total of 368,925 units were sold.
Domestic sales recorded a 12 percent year-over-year increase in April, reaching 71,413 units. The increase was led by newly launched models, brand-new flagship SUV Palisade and all-new Sonata, Hyundai’s popular sedan. Continued strong sales of Grandeur (called Azera overseas) also contributed to the increase.
Sales in overseas markets decreased by 9.3 percent compared to April 2018, with 297,512 units sold, as the consumer demand slowed in major auto-markets including China and India. Other emerging markets, namely Russia and the South America, showed healthy growths in sales.
Hyundai plans to build sales momentum with the recently launched Sonata and Palisade (scheduled to be launched in the U.S. in the latter half of this year). The company will also swiftly respond to market trends by introducing vehicles tailored to meet customers’ demands.
