MARKHAM, ON, Jan. 3, 2014 /CNW/ - Hyundai Auto Canada Corp. announced
today its full-year 2013 sales of 137,100 vehicles has set a new
company record. Buoyed by strong performances last year from its
Elantra compact car, Genesis Coupe sports car, Santa Fe Sport SUV, as
well as the addition of the new 6-or-7 passenger Santa Fe XL, the
company has achieved regular, annual sales growth since 2004.
"Last year was one with a number of significant events for Hyundai in
Canada," said Steve Kelleher, President and CEO of Hyundai Auto Canada
Corp. "We expanded our Santa Fe nameplate to include an
extended-wheelbase Santa Fe XL, grew our dealer network from 206 to 210
locations, celebrated our 30th anniversary in Canada, and helped 2,721 kids play hockey this winter
through our Hyundai Hockey Helpers initiative. To end the year with
another sales record is just an added bonus."
Kelleher added that 2014 will be another significant year. "At Hyundai,
we're never content to sit back and relax. We have big plans for this
year and it all starts with the introduction of an all-new Genesis
premium sedan on January 13th at the Auto Show in Detroit."
