May Auto Sales: Hyundai, Kia Keep Seoul Train on Track
Automakers Set New Volume Benchmarks in May
Even as the two brands underperformed the industry last month, Hyundai and Kia each set new sales records for May and continued to work their way into the mainstream of the U.S. automotive marketplace. In fact, the former achieved its second-best sales month of all-time, while the latter announced it had sold its 4 millionth vehicle since beginning sales in this country in 1994.
(As a reminder, Hyundai and Kia are both controlled by the Hyundai Motor Group, headquartered in Seoul, South Korea.)
