HYUNDAI CANADA’S SEPTEMBER/2009 SALES SUCCESS STORY

Exactly one month ago, even at this time of the morning, The Good Car Guy published a complete report on Hyundai Canada’s sales success. Once again, Hyundai’s Sales Stats in Canada are very impressive; only this time we’re talking about September rather than August. Yes, Hyundai Canada is having trouble getting rid of the Sonata. The advent of the Genesis is making it difficult to sell the Azera. And the reality of a soon-coming all-new Tucson makes the current Tucson a tough sell. Also, the Veracruz sells at an average of less than 1 per dealer per month. 

Overall, however, Hyundai sold 9,282 automobiles in September of 2009. That’s a 30.8% increase over September of 2008, or 2,187 more vehicles sold last month than in the same period of 2008. For all the details of Hyundai Canada’s September success, click through the jump.
