MONTGOMERY: Tonight while in Montgomery I saw a Hyundai parked with a municipal license plate. I think the City of Montgomery, based on where it was parked, has bought Hyundai's for some of their city fleet vehicles.
Recently I have been driving a Hyundai Equus. It has turned out to be one of the best driving, riding and operating vehicles I have ever driven. It is unreal the satisfaction I have had in this fine vehicle.
A few Saturday's ago I went to Jackson Alabama ( 18 miles one way ) on the Equus. My wife's uncle was there and driving a Hyundai. He always been driving Lincoln's. He moved from Washington D.C. to Foley Alabama several years ago. When asked about his Hyundai, Uncle Johnny said he likes it better than the Lincoln's and has two, one for him and one for his wife.
I saw this article about Hyundai tonight and wanted to pass it on. Also encourage you to see the group at Hyundai of Dothan and test drive a Hyundai. You will be very impressed.
COSTA MESA, CA - Hyundai reports all-time record for first quarter sales
Hyundai Motor America Tuesday announced sales of 68,306 units, down two percent versus the best volume month Hyundai ever recorded last year, but up more than 30 percent over February levels. The South Korean car company, which builds several models at a plant in Montgomery, Alabama, says the first quarter of 2013 was the best in its history.
"March felt just great," said Dave Zuchowski, executive vice president of national sales. "We definitely benefitted from better inventories of Elantra thanks to the addition of the third shift at our Alabama plant, improved weather conditions in our important Northern markets and more robust retail activity reflecting a steady recovery in consumer confidence. Elantra led the pack with an all-time monthly sales record of 26,153 units, up 33 percent year-over-year. Sonata Hybrid also set a new all-time sales record with 2,006 sales, up 13 percent versus last year."
Fleet mix was 17 percent for the month and stands at 16 percent for the year, among the lowest in the industry.
