Basically, Hyundai smoked the competition, outselling all other automakers’ 40 MPG offerings. According to Hyundai, through the first six months, 20% of Hyundai’s sales volume topped 40 MPG highway fuel economy – a number that rocketed to 40 percent in the month of June.
Hyundai’s “4 x 40” strategy includes four models that reach 40 mpg standard this year including the hot-selling Elantra, Sonata Hybrid and all-new 2012 Accent which just started to hit Edmond Hyundai in June. The fourth model – Hyundai’s youthful and fun Veloster – will add a new spark to the fleet this fall (which we are ever-so-excited about getting!)
Elantra ignited Hyundai’s “4 x 40” strategy at launch in December 2010. The stylish, American-made sedan continues to set a torrid sales pace, 79 percent ahead of last year. Every 2011 Elantra sold achieves 40 miles per gallon highway fuel economy with no special options or equipment required.
Sonata Hybrid and Accent added reinforcements to the 40 mpg strategy, and both are just starting to reach dealerships in volume. With Veloster still to come, Hyundai is positioned to grow its 40 mpg sales volume through the end of the year. Plans for additional fireworks are still in the works (and we can’t wait!)
