Final results for 2009 saw Hyundai post its best-ever annual result since the brand was introduced to Australia back in 1986.
Hyundai sales grew to 63,207 units, an increase of 39.2 per cent over 2008, making the brand the clear winner in the 2009 sales race and following 12 consecutive months of year-on-year growth.
The result was all the more remarkable for the fact it was achieved in a market that contracted by 7.4 per cent compared to the previous year, with 937,328 cars registered during 2009.
“HMCA’s results are at the forefront of what has been an outstandingly successful year for the brand globally,” said Mr Damien Meredith, Director of Sales Hyundai Motor Company Australia.
“2010 promises to be another exciting year as Hyundai consolidates its presence with the arrival of the all-new ix35 compact SUV next month, with plenty more to follow.”
Best model results were i30 reporting over 21,400 units sold, a 109.9 per cent increase on 2008, the Tucson with 11,405 units, an 85.7 per cent increase on 2008, and for the second year running Getz took top ranking in its segment with 19,643 units sold in the period January-December 2009.
