Following a strong start to the year with a market share of 5.5% in January, Hyundai Motor Company Australia has continued its strategic market growth in February.

With 4,151 vehicles sold, Hyundai achieved a 5.9% market share in February, the company’s highest result since the factory owned subsidiary was set-up in late 2003 (the last time Hyundai cars had achieved a market share of 5.9% was December 2001).

Hyundai was the only volume brand to post a sales increase in February compared with the same period last year.

“We believe that our message based on offering high quality products, outstanding value and affordable technology is getting through to a much wider range of consumers,” commented Kevin McCann, Director of Sales and Marketing.  “The hard work of both our Dealers and the factory is ensuring our award-winning cars are fulfilling our customers’ expectations.”

Hyundai Motor Company Australia ranked third in the van segment with a 10.4% market share, fifth in the passenger car market with a 7.6% market share, seventh in the SUV segment with a market share of 5.6% and seventh for total vehicle sales.

The Getz was the top selling model in the Light car segment with a 16.7% market share and the multi-award winning i30 five-door hatch ranked fourth in the Small segment after posting its best ever sales result of 1,234 cars.
