More good news from Hyundai and Kia. Strong Elantra sales (yay) for Hyundai and strong sales of the new US-built Sorento for Kia. Good stuff.

Hyundai Press Release said:
HYUNDAI MOTOR AMERICA REPORTS JANUARY 2010 SALES

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., 02/02/2010
Hyundai Motor America today announced January sales of 30,503 units, up 24 percent versus January 2009. This marks the thirteenth consecutive month of year-over-year retail market share gains for Hyundai and our best retail share performance since the government’s “Cash-for-Clunkers” program in August 2009.

“While we were surprised and disappointed in the overall weakness of the industry in January, we are encouraged by our strong performance at both ends of the market spectrum. Our fuel-efficient Accent and Elantra entries were up 61 and 133 percent respectively, while our flagship Genesis recorded its best-ever retail segment share,” said Dave Zuchowski, Hyundai Motor America’s vice president of national sales.

“In addition, we are exceptionally well poised for the first quarter of 2010. The red-hot and completely redesigned 2010 Tucson hit dealer lots in January and recorded a 128 percent sales increase in its first month. Vehicle availability is rapidly improving to meet overwhelming consumer demand and, at the same time, we are introducing the all-new, game-changing Sonata to our expanding product lineup this week. Both vehicles deliver striking styling and an unprecedented combination of quality, performance and fuel economy at a very affordable price. We fully expect both vehicles to significantly bolster our sales momentum throughout 2010.”

Sonata and Tucson represent the first two vehicles in a wave of new model launches which will introduce seven new models in a 24 month period. This new product blitz from Hyundai, called “24/7 Version 2.0” will usher in a new era of modern design for the Hyundai brand, while retaining its strong heritage of quality, safety, fuel efficiency, and value.

In January, Hyundai Assurance was also extended and enhanced for 2010. The trend-setting program, initiated in 2009, includes a vehicle return option for new-car buyers and is the most comprehensive consumer safety net for new-car buyers in the industry.

Kia Sales Release said:
KIA MOTORS AMERICA ANNOUNCES JANUARY SALES

All-New 2011 Kia Sorento CUV Arrives in Showrooms; Records
Strong First Month

IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 2, 2010 – Kia Motors America (KMA) today announced January sales of 22,123 units, highlighted by a strong first-month performance of the brand’s first U.S.-built1 vehicle – the all-new 2011 Sorento CUV – which arrived in showrooms on January 4 and was the brand’s best-selling vehicle for the month with 7,398 units sold. January sales represent a 0.1-percent increase over the same period in 2009.

“The all-new Sorento’s tremendous early performance is a clear indication that its combination of ‘just right’ size, design, modern technology and interior features and packaging resonates with consumers,” said B.M. Ahn, group president and CEO of KMA and Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia (KMMG). “The Kia brand is rapidly evolving thanks to innovative designs, and the arrival of the first vehicle from our plant in West Point, Georgia is a significant milestone as we continue to expand our line of vehicles while following the Kia brand tenets of value, quality, safety and technology.”

Kia Motors is in the midst of a dramatic, design-led transformation, which has been delivering dynamically styled vehicles in several important segments at exactly the right time, contributing to the brand’s continued gains in U.S. market share. The launch of the all-new 2011 Sorento CUV, the official vehicle of the NBA and the first vehicle to be built at the company’s first U.S.-based manufacturing facilities in West Point, Georgia, will further enhance the lineup and is now arriving in dealerships.

I can't tell if you are trying to be funny or not. They don't make the Spectras anymore since the Forte is its replacement.

Those Sorentos must be everywhere!
I know right, and I haven't seen one driving yet. I'm sure 30% of those were sold to employees of the Georgia plant, hah.
