The Hyundai Elantra has set an all-time sales record in 2012, passing its 186,361 unit total from last year with a week still left in 2012.
The Korean automaker is hoping that the Elantra surpasses the 200,000 mark, joining the Sonata as the second model to do so this year. The Elantra has been the ALG’s compact car residual value leader for the last three years.

“Adding the third shift to our plant in Alabama this year has allowed us to better meet demand for Elantra,” said John Krafcik, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor America. “Elantra buyers love its recipe of ALG-class-leading residual value, bold design, and outstanding value. With a full year of three-shift U.S. production in 2013 we hope to introduce even more American car buyers to Elantra next year.”
