Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. (HARI), the official distributor of Hyundai commercial vehicles (CVs) in the country, managed to rank third in the local CV segment. This is a testament to the Korean car brand’s drive to continuously improve its services in the local CV industry.
Hyundai PH's CV game is going strong
In its April 2021 year-to-date (YTD) sales report, HARI sold 711 CV units, a 672.8 percent increase as compared to the same period last year. The sales number translates to 19.1 percent in the overall sales in the local CV segment which is enough for HARI to clinch the third spot in the ranking.
Part of the car brand’s growth in the local CV industry is its dependable and reliable construction trucks that consist of the HD36L Maxculado, HD65, HD65X, and Xcient trucks. These Hyundai CVs have made their mark in three of the truck categories including Category III, Category IV-A, and Category V.
The Hyundai County bus
As for the Bus segment sales, HARI recorded a whopping 76.5 percent market share by selling 52 units headed by the County. Take note that the car brand managed to accomplish the said feat despite the travel restrictions amid the global health crisis which limited the use of buses and people-haulers.
Moreover, HARI has rolled out various efforts to advance the Public Utility Vehicle (PUV) Modernization Program in areas such as Pangasinan and Cavite. With this, the HD50 Class 2 Modern Jeepney and HD50S Modern PUV Class 3 helped improve the CV presence of the car brand in the country.
Hyundai will continue improving its CV lineup for entrepreneurs and the economy
HARI will remain strong amid the challenges during these trying times to not only improve its services in the CV industry, but also support Filipino entrepreneurs with their businesses. This will boost and move the economy for a better new normal.
“We welcome this new achievement of Hyundai Trucks and Buses in the Philippines as a big win, not only for us at HARI and our dealer network, but even more inspiringly, this is a triumphant milestone for Filipino entrepreneurs, because of their boldness to keep on going by partnering with brands like Hyundai to help move the economy for the better in every way possible,” said HARI President and CEO Ms. Ma. Fe Perez-Agudo.
