Maryland Delaware Hyundai Dealer Sees Sales Rise in January with Top Seller Hyundai Elantra


Hyundai Motor America announced that January sales were up 24% from last January 2009. The sales increase was year over year. Hyundai Motor America also said that this past January sales increased even more than the Cash for Clunkers sales increase last August. The Cash for Clunkers program gave car and truck buyers a $3500 or $4500 trade-in rebate towards a vehicle that improved fuel economy. Hyundai was the top automaker to take advantage of this program in the United States.

Hyundai experienced a gain from 24,512 units last January (2009) to 30,503 units this January. That’s nearly a 6,000 unit increase. The sales increase was lead by the 2010 Hyundai Elantra with a staggering 7,690 units sold this past month. The newly redesigned 2010 Hyundai Tucson that recently went on sale also saw a sales increase of 128% and sold 2,216 units this past January. Once the new 2011 Hyundai Sonata comes out later this month it is expected to see similar results to the 2010 Hyundai Tucson.

Maryland Hyundai Dealers and Delaware Hyundai Dealers also saw the similar results as the rest of the nation did. “Lately it seems like Elantras have been our lifeblood. Customers love those compact cars” says John Skalstad of Maryland Hyundai Dealer, Preston Hyundai. John also commented that he was beginning to see a much needed increase in the Hyundai Tucson with the 2010 Hyundai Tucson model and is excited for the 2011 Hyundai Sonata.

The 2010 Hyundai Tucson was totally redesigned from its predecessor. The new 2011 Hyundai Sonata will do the same thing. Both models will follow the new “flow” style of the Hyundai line-up. The “flow” designed can be seen in the Genesis, Tucson, and the upcoming Sonata.
