In markets outside of Korea, Hyundai Motor sold a total of 285,570 units, a 14.7 percent increase from a year earlier. Despite global component shortages and ongoing geopolitical issues, the sales in global markets have recovered steadily this month.
Sales in Korea were down by 3.5 percent year-over-year to 49,224 units. However, the company maintained solid sales of SUV models and Genesis luxury brand vehicles, selling 15,164 units and 9,617 units, respectively.
