Accent, Elantra and Sonata lead their respective segments
MARKHAM, ON, June 1, 2011 /CNW/ - With May industry car sales entered
into the record books, Hyundai Auto Canada Corp. has further secured
its spot as Canada's best-selling passenger car brand for the first
five months of 2011. In the month of May, the Accent, Elantra
(including Elantra Touring) and Sonata rose to the top of the sales
charts for the subcompact, compact and intermediate segments,
respectively. As a result, the Hyundai brand led passenger car sales
for May and continues its leadership year-to-date.
May marked the third consecutive month that Hyundai has led all
manufacturers in passenger car sales. Hyundai Canada offers a complete
passenger car line-up ranging from the Accent subcompact to the Equus
full-size luxury sedan, including the rear-wheel drive Genesis Coupe.
"Subcompact, compact and intermediate cars are among the largest
segments in Canada," said Steve Kelleher, President and CEO of Hyundai
Auto Canada Corp. "To have a Hyundai vehicle at or near the top of all
three segments clearly shows Hyundai's combination of quality, safety,
fuel economy, styling and value is resonating with consumers."
Hyundai Auto Canada, established in 1983 and headquartered in Markham
Ontario, is a subsidiary of Hyundai Motor Company of Korea. Hyundai
vehicles are distributed throughout Canada by Hyundai Auto Canada and
are sold and serviced through more than 195 dealerships nationwide.
