Hyundai Motor Company said Monday that it had sold 345,777 finished cars in domestic and foreign markets in April. This is an increase of 106% from the same month last year. Domestic sales declined 1.2 percent year-over-year to 70,219 units, but overseas sales increased 185.1 percent to 275,558 units. Sales volume has increased significantly due to the base effect of the disruption of factory production and sluggish sales caused by COVID-19 last year. Hyundai Motor Company plans to actively participate in activities aimed at overcoming COVID-19 and strive to normalize sales.
In the domestic market, 24,216 sedans were sold. Grandeur sold 9,684 units, leading national sales, Avante sold 7,422 units and 7,068 Sonata units. Recreational vehicles (RVs) sold 18,448 units. There were 5,777 palisades, 4,478 Tucsons, and 4,096 Santa Fe.
In particular, Nexo, the world market leader in hydrogen electric vehicles, sold 1,265 units, exceeding 1,000 units per month for the first time. Porter sold 9,182 units and 3,125 medium and large buses and trucks. Premium brand Genesis sold 13,890 units, including 6,009 G80 units, 4,161 GV70 units and 2,321 GV80 units.
