Link to Press Release

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Hyundai Motor America

today announced sales of 41,130 for the month of August, an 8.8 percent

decrease from the all-time August sales record set in 2007.

"Once again the fuel-efficient Accent, Sonata and Elantra, despite

restricted availability, continued their upward sales trend with increases

of 73 percent, 17 percent and 13 percent, respectively, over the same month

last year," said Dave Zuchowski, Hyundai Motor America's vice president of

national sales. "As illustrated by our August sales, the small to midsize

segments continue to be where the market is and we believe Hyundai is

extremely well positioned to capitalize on this."

"Additionally, we just finished our first full month of sales of our

new rear-wheel drive Genesis and we are thrilled with the results of 1,177

units. Genesis is changing the way American buyers think about the Hyundai

brand and is attracting an entirely new type of prospect to our showrooms."
