Preston Hyundai Dealer Celebrates Hyundai’s 25th Year in Maryland and U.S.


Preston Hyundai has only been outside of Preston, Maryland for a little over 8 years now (built in 2003) but Hyundai Motor Company has been in the United States now for 25 years. Though most people can remember Hyundai back then, Hyundai has come a long way from then to now. Back then gas prices were at $1.20 per gallon, financing topping 10 percent APR and airbags emerging as the latest safety technology, its is true to say that the auto industry looked much different 25 years ago when Hyundai brought its car to the United States. Today, with a full line-up of award-winning products, Hyundai Motor America celebrated its 25th anniversary in the U.S. on February 20th, focused on the new challenges and exciting opportunities that the next 25 years will bring.

Hyundai got tis start in 1986 with the Excel. Today, Hyundai’s model lineup now offers 12 distinct cars and crossovers – with more on the way for Maryland Hyundai buyers and Delaware Hyundai buyers. Hyundai’s immediate future includes three exciting new models arriving at showrooms through summer. The Veloster, a unique 3-door 40-mpg sporty coupe featuring Hyundai’s Blue Link telematics solution, will join all-new 4-door and 5-door versions of the Accent, which will also deliver 40 mpg. Hyundai’s award-winning Genesis gets a through face-lift and new engines and transmissions, with the performance-focused Genesis R-Spec and its all-new 429-horsepower Tau 5.0L V8 engine making its first appearance.

Since the company’s arrival, Americans including Marylanders and Delawarians have put 6,608,208 Hyundai vehicles in their driveways, with more than 4,350,000 still on the road today. In 2010, sales topped 538,000, making Hyundai the sixth best-selling brand in the country. U.S. production capacity has grown to over 400,000 units of Sonata, Elantra and Santa Fe models produced in modern assembly plants in Alabama and Georgia. Hyundai engines and transmissions are produced here, too. Direct U.S. employment totals more than 4,000, with total employment including suppliers and dealers of over 45,000. Hyundai’s commitment to the U.S. market includes engineering, design, testing, production, sales, and marketing.

Over the past 25 years we have seen Hyundai introduce what is the industry’s best warranty to Maryland Hyundai buyers, Delaware Hyundai buyers, and everyone in the U.S.– a 10-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty, and a 5-year, 60,000-mile vehicle warranty. As well as Hyundai Assurance that includes America’s Best Warranty, five years of unlimited mileage roadside assistance, job-loss protection program. Hyundai has also established the most aggressive fuel economy goal in the industry, committing to a 50 miles-per-gallon-plus fleet average by 2025 for all Hyundai customers in Delaware and Maryland.

“I have seen the dramatic change Hyundai has undergone in the last 25 years, from the Hyundai Excel to now the Hyundai Equus,” says John Skalstad of Preston Hyundai in Maryland, “I am proud to offer the Hyundai product to our customers here in Delaware and Maryland, Hyundai is the best they have ever been whether it’s safety, quality, style, performance, or the best “bang for your buck” Hyundai has continously improved and I encourage anyone to come out and take a look at the Hyundai product.” Preston Hyundai located in Maryland and serves Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia with all Hyundai models inlcuding the exclusive Hyundai Equus.
