FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Dec. 1, 2006 – Hyundai Motor America sold 28,417 units during the month of November, down 14.9 percent compared with November 2005.

“Sales declined in November due to our strategy to reduce fleet sales in 2006 as well as the reduced availability of our new Elantra due to continued effects of the strike earlier this year. Improving availability of new models such as the Elantra and Santa Fe will help our year-end close on a very strong note. We are very encouraged by the sales of our new Santa Fe, which experienced a 52 percent increase in sales over last year,” said Mark Barnes, vice president, National Sales, Hyundai Motor America said.
