We’re looking forward to a strong close of 2012 for Hyundai and the industry, and a positive economic environment that supports continued auto industry recovery in 2013”, said the Hyundai Motor America president and CEO, John Krafcik.

According to the car manufacturer, Hyundai has managed to sell a total of 643,572 new cars through November, compared to the 645,691 units which managed to find new owners in 2011. The cars mentioned above have been sold in the United States exclusively. For 2013, Hyundai is expecting to brake this year’s record.
