Despite dealing with its mpg scandal, Hyundai set a new record this year for annual U.S. sales.
The Korean automaker has been gaining popularity quickly over the last couple of years thanks to a drastic redesign and it seems that popularity is continuing to grow.
“With teamwork from thousands of Hyundai team members in manufacturing plants, offices, engineering centers and dealerships across the U.S, we’ve been able to increase supply of our hottest selling vehicles like Sonata, Elantra, and Santa Fe, and deliver more satisfied customers than ever before,” said John Krafcik, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor America. “We’re looking forward to a strong close of 2012 for Hyundai and the industry, and a positive economic environment that supports continued auto industry recovery in 2013.”
Hyundai reported selling 643,572 sales through November and the brand sold a total of 645,691 in 2011. The automaker made the sales announcement today, which means the mark was broken sometime this week.
