The Hyundai Sonata 2015 is an awesome vehicle and has received some sterling reviews across the board since its unveiling. On top of that, Hyundai sold more than 20,000 Sonata 2014’s in just two weeks, breaking company records.
Hyundai recorded its best April ever, revenue-wise, in North America and reported last Thursday that it sold 66,107 vehicles last month. 20,495 of those sales were Hyundai Sonatas, and the company is also quite pleased with the initial response to its 2015 model.
HMA Vice President of National Sales Bob Pradzinski said, “With consumer confidence continuing on an upward swing and the economy improving across the nation, customers appear to have put cars back on their shopping lists.”
April was a great turn up for the books for Hyundai, who saw disappointing sales in February and March, which HMA blamed on poor weather and some supply line issues.
The company plans to introduce an all-new version of the Hyundai Tucson next year and believes it can double its sales across the United States, thanks to greater availability from its various plants in South Korea.
Currently, Hyundai sells around 45,000 Tucsons per year in America, but hope, with the help of the new assembly plants in China, India and Brazil, to increase that number steadily.
U.S. chief David Zuchowski told reporters, “We’re missing business in the Tucson segment. We think we can easily get to 90,000.”
Zuchowski, who took over Hyundai operations in January, confirmed that the new Tucson will hit the streets around May 2015:
“Our long-term plans are, we want to gain the market share back that we lost last year. It’s very, very important to get back to 5 percent symbolically. It’s not going to happen overnight, but that’s our plan,” he said.
It remains to be seen whether or not the new Hyundai Sonata 2015 will enjoy the same roaring success as its predecessor. What is for sure is that Hyundai is increasingly becoming a formidable force in the automobile market in America as they increase their market share steadily and impressively.
