Hyundai Motor America Reports Strong November Sales

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., 12/03/2007 Hyundai Motor America today reported a November sales increase of 12 percent over a year ago, led by Santa Fe and Sonata, both up 41 percent for the month. Additionally, the Accent, one of the company's ultra low emission vehicles (ULEV) that delivers up to 37 miles per gallon, saw sales rise 19 percent. In total, the company sold 31,883 vehicles for the month, compared with 28,417 a year ago.

"This was our second best November ever and considering the current economic uncertainty we are pleased with our results," said Dave Zuchowski, Hyundai Motor America's vice president of national sales. "Strong incentive programs helped our dealers sell our remaining inventory as we move to fill our showrooms with the full lineup of our 2008 products."

All Hyundai vehicles sold in the U.S. are covered by The Hyundai Advantage, America's Best Warranty. Hyundai buyers are protected by a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, a 5-year/60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, a 7-year/unlimited-mile anti-perforation warranty and 5-year/unlimited-mile roadside assistance protection.
