August was additional wonderful month for the local distributor of Hyundai vehicles in our country – Hyundai Asia Resources Inc (HARI) as the company continued to have healthy development relative to 2016. In detail, August 2017’s sales saw 3,273 units coming out of Hyundai dealerships. The figure reflects a 17% better performance over the same month of 2016, with 2,798 units sold.
The August performance helped the Korean car brand reach its total year-to-date sales to 24,233 copies during the January to August period. This means that Hyundai PH posted a 9 % growth from 22,134 units in 2016.
The excellent performance can be attributed to the strong showing of Hyundai’s hot-selling vehicles like the Hyundai Accent, Hyundai H-100. As before, the wide popularity and strong appeal of the Hyundai Accent are continuing to drive Hyundai’s sales momentum this year. The sales of brand-new Hyundai Accent jumped to 14% from a year ago to 1,383 copies in August. This propelled the Passenger Car (PC) sales to 2,122 copies – an increase of 2% from last year’s sales of 2,087 copies.
