Hyundai Sales Data, Trends, Analysis & Current Lineup for the Canadian Automotive Market

This is your hub for all of the Hyundai sales data for the Canadian market. Hyundai was introduced into the Canadian market in 1983 through Hyundai Auto Canada Corp., the Canadian subsidiary of the Korean automaker Hyundai Motor Company of Korea. Its corporate headquarters is located in Markham, Ontario. Hyundai’s Canadian dealership network has grown to approximately 192 locations nationwide.

Initially, Hyundai entered Canada with a focus on the then under-served entry-level market, providing economically priced, value-packed vehicles such as the Hyundai Pony, Stellar, and Excel. Over the years, with a focus on design, quality, and safety as well as heavy investment in research and development, the Hyundai has established itself as one of the top-selling foreign automakers in the country. In 2011, the company recorded its best sales year in Canada with a reported 129,240 vehicles sold. As you can see below, it has grown a lot since then.
