Delaware Maryland Hyundai Dealer Sees Increased Sale of New Sonata and Santa Fe


The month of April marked Hyundai USA’s third consecutive monthly sales record. Thanks to responsive consumers and an exciting new product line up, Hyundai is attracting new customers and increasing sales and production. In the month of April, Hyundai had sold over 44,000 vehicles alone in the United States, which was a 30% increase since April of the previous year.

With increases in quality and safety in new models like the recently redesigned 2011 Hyundai Sonata and 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe, customers are beginning to take advantage of Hyundai’s affordable prices. New Sonatas are starting at only $19,915 while customers can get into the new Santa Fe for only $22,490 according to Preston Hyundai in Maryland and Delaware.

The great response from the market has led Hyundai manufacturing plants to increase production of their two highest selling models the Sonata and Santa Fe. April brought in large number of customers for the new Sonata with 18,536 sold accounting for almost half of Hyundai’s 44,000 total sales last month. Total sales of the Sonata in April were up 57% than sales recorded last April. The Santa Fe was well received last month as well with 5,917 sold meaning sales for the Santa Fe model were up 59% since April of last year.

With the increased sales of models such as the Sonata and Santa Fe, manufacturers of the automobiles have found it hard to keep up with demand. Hyundai’s response is to increase the number of available production days in the month of May. Hyundai’s Montgomery plant that manufactures the Sonata and Santa Fe has added two Saturdays to their May work schedule, both May 1 and May 15.

The Hyundai Sonata’s recent success could be attributed by its great new design and its segment-leading 35 mpg which most consumers are thankful for in times where money is tight as noticed by Delaware Hyundai Dealers and Maryland Hyundai Dealers. John Skalstad of Preston Hyundai in Maryland stated, “Our customers love the brand and they love the great fuel economy new Hyundai models offer.” The company’s strong sales may lead the Hyundai brand and its dealers into a fifth consecutive monthly sales record meaning even more increases in production.
