In markets outside of Korea, Hyundai Motor sold a total of 286,588 units, a 13.9 percent increase from a year earlier. Strong sales in North and South America, India and Asia-Pacific markets helped to drive momentum.

Despite unfavorable external conditions, including ongoing shortages of components and cost fluctuations of raw materials, Hyundai Motor will continue to alleviate business uncertainties by optimizing production and inventory while diversifying business strategies tailored to each region.
Hyundai’s global sales turned positive in the period from January to October by an increase of 0.4 percent from a year earlier, spurred by a global sales recovery.
