July was a strong month for Hyundai Motor America, as the company delivered 62,021 vehicles, representing an all-time July record and an increase of 9.5 percent over last year’s month of July.
Sales of the 40-mpg Hyundai models were up an amazing 38 percent to 23,517 units. The Accent saw a small decline in demand, the Sonata held steady from a year ago, but the added coupe and GT models for the Elantra mean demand grew.

“July was another solid month for Hyundai with surging consumer demand dampened a bit by ongoing shortages of core products like Accent, Elantra, and Sonata. Our 27 day supply of vehicles is lowest of all brands and less than half of industry average inventory levels,” said Dave Zuchowski, executive vice president of sales.
“This is a challenging situation in this hyper-competitive retail environment, so we are looking forward to August with great anticipation. Relief is definitely on the way with the first shipments of our all-new Santa Fe, built in West Point, Georgia, heading to dealers now and improved availability of recently launched and red hot Veloster Turbo, Elantra GT and Elantra Coupe,” he added.
