Hyundai i30 best selling small car in March
Hyundai’s multi-award winning i30 range has continued to win fans, leading its segment for the first time in March with a sales result of 3,678 units and a 16.4% segment share.
Hyundai also posted its best ever March result since the brand started selling cars in Australia in 1986. The sales result of 7,797 units was also its second best monthly sales result since the factory established the wholly owned subsidiary Hyundai Motor Company Australia.
In a total market that has increased +25.2% (March 2010 v. March 2009), Hyundai Motor Company Australia has achieved an overall increase in sales of +58.9% (representing 15 consecutive months of month-on-month sales growth).
“The team at Hyundai and the Hyundai Dealer network are delighted that more and more Australians are discovering the quality and value of today’s Hyundai range. Over 800,000 new Hyundais have now been delivered to Australian customers since the brand entered the market,” said Damien Meredith, Hyundai’s Director of Sales. “Today, the i-series range of products continues to grow. We will be launching the new i45 mid-sized sedan next month followed by the i20 compact hatch in the middle of the year.”
Meanwhile overseas, Hyundai Motor Company’s global sales increased +35.7% (March YTD 2010 v. March YTD 2009). Hyundai Motor America announced an all-time sales record for both the first quarter and for the month of March, selling 47,002 vehicles, up +15.4% (March YTD 2010 v. March YTD 2009). Based on retail-only sales data, the new i45 sedan – known as Sonata in North America - emerged as America’s third best-selling mid-size sedan
