Hyundai Mo­tor Com­pany Aus­tralia has fin­ished the month of June with record sales of 10 008 ve­hi­cles.

This is the 25th con­sec­u­tive month of year-on-year sales growth for Hyundai. The brand placed third over­all in the Aus­tralian mar­ket with an 8.5 per cent mar­ket share.

To­tal in­dus­try sales for the month of 118 309 were down 0.4 per cent com­pared with the same month last year.

For pas­sen­ger car sales, Hyundai’s to­tal of 7273 units placed the brand in sec­ond po­si­tion over­all, with a 13.5 per cent mar­ket share, up 3.4 per cent on the same pe­riod last year, ahead of Holden, Mazda, and Ford.

Hyundai mod­els placed first in three seg­ments, with an­other three mod­els rank­ing top three for their re­spec­tive seg­ments.

The ix35 continues to be the num­ber one sell­ing ve­hi­cle in the com­pet­i­tive small SUV un­der $40 000 seg­ment with 1851 units sold in June, achiev­ing a 20.9 per cent seg­ment share.

The light un­der $25 000 seg­ment was dom­i­nated by Hyundai’s i20, sell­ing 1833 units and achiev­ing a 17.6 per cent seg­ment share, while sales of i20 and Ac­cent (737 units) com­bined to achieve a to­tal 2570 units and a seg­ment share of 24.7 per cent.

In the small cars un­der $40 000 seg­ment Hyundai’s i30 sales of 3243 units com­bined with Hyundai’s Elantra sales of 904 units to achieve a to­tal of 4147 units and a seg­ment share of 17 per cent.

The Sports Cars un­der $80 000 seg­ment saw Hyundai’s Veloster re­turn­ing to the top po­si­tion, sell­ing 221 units and achiev­ing a 20.6 per cent mar­ket share.

An­other three Hyundai mod­els achieved podium re­sults in June, with iLoad fin­ish­ing in sec­ond place, and the i30 and iMax fin­ish­ing in third place in their re­spec­tive seg­ments.

“This record re­sult is not just about HMCA and the strength of the Hyundai prod­uct range, it’s about the Hyundai dealer net­work,” Hyundai Mo­tor Com­pany Aus­tralia chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Char­lie Kim said.

“As Hyundai continues to grow in Aus­tralia, so our dealer net­work will grow with us — this 25th con­sec­u­tive month of year-onyear sales growth is an all-time record, but it is also part of a longterm strat­egy. We strive for solid, con­sis­tent, man­age­able growth as we face a chal­leng­ing mar­ket for the rest of 2014 and be­yond.”
