Hyundai Boosts Production of 2010 Hyundai Tucson to Meet Growing Demand in Maryland and Delaware
The 2010 Hyundai Tucson was introduced to Maryland and Delaware Hyundai buyers last December. Two months later Delaware and Maryland Hyundai Dealers found themselves in a short supply for customers. This minor problem however will soon be solved since Hyundai Motor Company announced that they will boost 2010 Hyundai Tucson production in South Korea to meet the growing demand for the newly redesigned crossover.
The newly redesigned 2010 Hyundai Tucson now has more curves than its boxier predecessor and is a bit more aggressive looking. The 2010 Tucson is also lighter by 61 pounds and has an additional 3 inches in length. The reduction in weight has allowed it to gain better fuel economy at 31 mpg highway; a gain of 6 miles per gallon (the 2009 Hyundai Tucson was rated at 25 mpg by the EPA). The revamped Tucson also has downhill brake control, panoramic sunroof, “Eco Indicator”, and available navigation, rearview camera, steering wheel controls, XM radio, and Bluetooth. The cost for base models is under $20,000.
The new Hyundai Tucson was built to appeal to singles and young couples. Hyundai sold 2,216 2010 Tucsons last January, which is up from 974 in January 2009. John Krafcik, the CEO of Hyundai North America, says “We’re going to see a huge jump this year” referring to the new Hyundai Tucson. The 2010 Hyundai Tucson’s predecessor fell from 52,000 units in 2006 to just over 15,000 units last year.
“The 2010 Hyundai Tucson is better in every way from the old model of the Tucson. It seems that every time we do get a shipment to Preston Hyundai we cannot keep them in stock. Customers seem to fall in love with the new design.” says Bruce Vincent, Sales Manager at Maryland Hyundai, Preston Hyundai. Recently many Hyundai dealers have seen an increase in sales due to the recent recalls. Many Hyundai and Toyota buyers compare one another to each other when making a purchase.
