HYUNDAI MOTOR AMERICA REPORTS JUNE AND MID-YEAR SALES


 

  • Beats all-time sales record for the first half of the year
  • Best June ever
  • Equus has best month ever

COSTA MESA, Calif., July 3, 2012 – Hyundai Motor America, the most fuel-efficient automaker in the U.S., today announced an all-time June sales record of 63,813 units, up eight percent over last year’s all-time June record. Retail-only sales were up nine percent. For the first half of the year, sales are up 10 percent to a record 356,669 units, with retail sales up 13 percent.
“Despite a slight softening in May and June from the surprisingly strong industry retail sales pace for the first four months of the year, the Hyundai brand continues to build retail sales momentum and consistently achieve all-time monthly volume records,” said Dave Zuchowski, executive vice president of sales. “We expect continued sales growth during the robust summer selling season, with help from three recent and extremely exciting new additions to our line-up of industry-leading fuel-efficient vehicles: our all-new Veloster Turbo, the Elantra GT and Elantra Coupe.”
The all-new Azera, recently named an IIHS’ Top Safety Pick, continued its strong sales pace resulting in a 350 percent gain over last June. Accent and Sonata saw sales gains of 57 percent and 12 percent respectively, over the same period a year ago. Elantra sales declined 12 percent purely as a function of very low inventory levels, with just 8,160 Elantra sedans in dealer stock nationally at month-end. Hyundai’s family of premium products, Genesis and Equus, continue to deliver outstanding sales results finishing the month up 11 percent. Contrary to industry trends this month, Hyundai fleet sales and mix were once again down from last year, to an 11 percent mix for the month and a nine percent mix year-to-date, among the lowest in the industry.

 



In keeping with its industry-leading fuel efficiency status, Hyundai achieved a corporate average fuel economy level of 37.0 MPG (28.5 MPG label value) in June, while selling 24,140 vehicles (38 percent of total sales) with 40 MPG window label highway fuel economy ratings.


“June was another month for us to salute the dedicated Hyundai manufacturing teams for their efforts to keep up with consumer demand, and our hard-working dealers for their efforts matching consumers with light on-ground and inbound inventory,” said John Krafcik president and CEO of Hyundai Motor America. “With retail inventories of just 28 days, we’re doing our best to meet demand and appreciate the patience of Hyundai shoppers looking to put a new Hyundai in their driveway.”

Interesting, Genesis sales seem to have flattened off....

Veloster is an interesting product with a few "rough edges"

      Even though Hyundai's N performance division hasn't launched their first vehicle yet, the i30 N (what we will know as the Elantra GT), they are already planning future models.
      Speaking with Australia's Drive, the Head of N Albert Biermann revealed there are plans for to build N variants of the next-generation Veloster, B-Segment car, and even a crossover.
      We started with the [i30] C segment and the Fastback [coupe] will follow and we are already working on some other concepts for the B segment [Accent] and SUV also. Right now we are open," said Biermann.
      "The fun-to-drive element is not limited to the size and segment of the car; you can create fun cars in every segment."
      The SUV in question is the Tucson which makes kind of sense as it is the smallest one in Hyundai's lineup. Biermann also hinted that the upcoming Kona subcompact crossover could get an N version.
      What will not happen is any N version of Genesis models according to Biermann. This is a surprising reversal from last year as Biermann said that Genesis vehicles were in the plans for N in the next five years. No reason was given as to why.

      You would think the stigma of the diesel emission scandal would keep people away from picking up a fixed Volkswagen TDI model, but you would be wrong.
      Reuters notes that in April, 12 percent of Volkswagen's sales were for TDI models (about 3,196 vehicles). This is quite impressive when you take into consideration that Volkswagen was only given the go-ahead to sell TDI models with the fix back in mid-April.
      But we have to wonder if this percentage would be the same if Volkswagen didn't put some enticing incentives on TDI vehicles. As we reported last month, Volkswagen is offering either 0% APR for up to 72 months and $5,000 cash bonus if you decide to buy or an $8,500 cash bonus if you lease.

      Tesla held their first quarter earnings call yesterday. The company reported revenue in the quarter that more than doubled and that they are on track on getting the Model 3 in production in July. But this was overshadowed by some comments made by CEO Elon Musk.
      "We have seen some impact of Model S orders as a function of people being confused" that Model 3 is the upgrade to Model S, Musk said on a conference call.
      Yes, it seems some of Tesla's prospective buyers believe the new Model 3 - the upcoming entry-level model - is the replacement for the Model S. This misconception has likely risen as Tesla has been promoting this vehicle since last July. Tesla's worry is that this misconception will draw people away from the Model S.
      "We want to be super clear that Model 3 is not version three of our car. Model 3 is essentially a smaller, more affordable version of the Model S with fewer features," said Musk.
      "The Model S will be better than Model 3. As it should be, as it's a more expensive car."
      Sadly, customer deposits in the first quarter don't reflect that. Deposits on the Model S and X dropped 7 percent.
