New sales record for the Hyundai Elantra image

The South Korean based automaker Hyundai has recently announced an all-time sales record for the new Elantra in the United States, this year.

According to the car manufacturer, sales of the new Hyundai Elantra have set a new all-time record in the United States this year, exceeding the 186,361 units, which have found new owners in 2011, ever since earlier this month. High demand of the Hyundai Elantra in the United States made the company add a third shift in the Alabama facility.

“Adding the third shift to our plant in Alabama this year has allowed us to better meet demand for Elantra. Elantra buyers love its recipe of ALG-class-leading residual value, bold design, and outstanding value. With a full year of three-shift U.S. production in 2013 we hope to introduce even more American car buyers to Elantra next year”, said the Hyundai Motor America CEO and president, John Krafcik.

Even if the carmaker has announced new sales records for the Hyundai Elantra, no actual sales figures for 2012 have been released yet. The Hyundai Elantra could be the company’s second model to break the 200,000 unit mark in the United States after the popular Sonata sedan.
