Hyundai hits two millionth sales mark
Hyundai Canada cumulative sales have topped two million lead by SUVs and cars like the new Elantra compact sedan.
Hyundai Auto Canada has announced a significant milestone with the two-millionth cumulative sale since the company arrived in Canada in 1983.
Further, this announcement comes just one month after Hyundai sold its 500,000 Elantra compact car in Canada and nearly coincides with a global milestone.
And further still, Hyundai Auto Canada’s overarching parent organization, the Hyundai Motor Group, recently achieved 100-million in global cumulative sales.
The remarkable growth of Hyundai vehicle sales in Canada has been well documented, but the pace of growth is vividly shown in the amount of time between sales milestones.
It took 24 years and three months for the one-millionth Hyundai vehicle to be sold, but exactly a third of that – eight years and one month – for the company to hit two million.
Today, Hyundai is one of the country’s highest volume automotive brands thanks to a wide product line-up of cars, SUVs, and luxury vehicles.
This is exhibited by the fact that the company sold 461,778 passenger cars in 2011-2015, more than any other single brand in Canada, and both the Tucson and Santa Fe Sport compact SUVs are in the country’s top-15 list of best-selling light trucks.
Further, in the second half of 2016, Hyundai will launch its first vehicle under its new luxury brand, Genesis.
The launch of the new Genesis luxury line is part of a series of developments underway at Hyundai Auto Canada to elevate the brand and redefine the customer shopping and ownership experience.
The most notable is a new design for Hyundai dealerships. Under the Global Dealership Space Identity program, white-and-blue exterior colours typically associated with Hyundai dealerships are being replaced with bronze.
Inside customers will find an open environment – with Hyundai-blue accents – with modern, premium furniture, customer lounges, as well as new, digital kiosks, tablets, and wheel stands that enhance and facilitate the shopping experience.
