Darryl McGannon and Heather Walker from Edney’s Leongatha believe Hyundai’s solid start to 2014 is due to the growing reputation of the brand. Check out the range of Hyundais at Edney’s Leongatha today.
HYUNDAI Motor Company Australia has finished the first month of 2014 confidently placing fourth overall with 7152 total sales, up 4.9 per cent compared to the same period last year.
This equated to 8.7 per cent market share and represented a record 20th month of year-on-year (YOY) sales growth for the brand.
For passenger car sales, Hyundai’s total of 4797 units sold placed the brand in fourth position with an 11.5 per cent market share ahead of Ford, Volkswagen, and Nissan.
Hyundai’s ix35 continues to be the number one selling vehicle in the competitive Small SUV segment with 1496 units sold in January achieving a 26.5 per cent segment share.
Another five Hyundai models also achieved podium results in January, with the iMax, iLoad, and Veloster all finishing in second place in their respective segments, whilst the i30 and i40 finished third.
Combined sales of i20 and Accent achieved third place, while combined sales of i30 (hatch) and Elantra (sedan) ranked second place in their respective segments.
Total industry sales for the month of 82,285 were down 3.7 per cent YOY. In contrast, Hyundai’s total sales achieved a growth of 4.9 per cent over the same period.
“January sales produced another record month up 4.9 per cent, and our 20th consecutive month of year-on-year sales growth,” said Damien Meredith, director of Sales, Hyundai Motor Company Australia.
“In a month where the industry was down 3.7 per cent, this is a very solid effort for the brand to open the year with, and testament to the success of our current Hyundai Trophy campaign which is putting great value cars into the hands of both brand loyal, and brand new customers.”
