Hyundai Motor America announced last week that sales for the month of December of 63,005 units, up 6 percent versus the same period in 2013, representing the best December in company history and the first December to break the 60,000 mark. Annual sales were 720,783 units, up 2.5 percent over a record setting 2012.

“An exceptionally strong post-Christmas sales blitz enabled Hyundai to shatter our annual sales record which was set just last year,” said Dave Zuchowski, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor America. “All year-end indicators appear to be signaling a robust economic environment for 2014. Home prices are back to their pre-recession levels, jobless rates are continuing to decline, and consumer confidence is on the upswing. This is welcome news for the automotive sector and at Hyundai we’re particularly excited to be ringing in the New Year.”

Hyundai’s all-new Genesis sedan will launch later this month at the North American International Auto Show and the completely redesigned Sonata will arrive later in the spring, taking the breadth and depth of the Hyundai line-up to unparalleled heights. The U.S.-built Elantra set a full-year record with sales of 247,912, up 23 percent over 2012, while another U.S.-built vehicle Santa Fe, was up 25 percent for the year. Sonata Hybrid finished the year up 26 percent over 2012 with sales of 22,716.

Fleet sales represented 21 percent of total sales in December and 17 percent for the full year. Certified Pre-Owned vehicle sales for the month were 6,029 down six percent; full year sales were 75,941 up 8 percent over 2012.
