Hyundai Elantra Reaches 10 Million Unit Milestone
The huge success of Hyundai does not cease to impress people. Recently the Korean automotive company announced that its 2015 Elantra sedan (which is also known as Avante in some other parts of the world) surpassed the 10 million sales mark since its start in 1990. The striking achievement becomes even more striking when you take into consideration that Hyundai Elantra is the first model produced by Hyundai manufacturer and also one of the 10 cars in the whole auto-history to make such an amazing boom. This reputable accomplishment is possible thanks to the average sales of 420,000 per year which is rated approximately at 1,100 a day. Mind-blowing, isn't it?
"Reaching this historic mark is a testament to Elantra's staying power and the global appeal of a vehicle that delivers design, functionality and performance," pointed out Bob Pradzinski, vice president of National Sales, Hyundai Motor America. He continued and added that; "As a company it also shows our ability to quickly adapt to changing consumer preferences and continue to push the compact car segment with features once reserved for luxury vehicles."
The most recent Elantra model keeps its position of a leader among the exclusively competitive compact car range. This has been confirmed by several prestigious awards which the Elantra has achieved, thus including ranking the highest in its segment for initial quality in the influential J.D. Power 2014 U.S. Initial Quality StudySM (IQS). Elantra is also the three-time winner (during 2011, 2012 and 2013) of the ALG Residual Value Awards and remains one of the most desirable and purchased vehicles in the segment.
