According to statistics that were supplied by the carmaker on Thursday, cumulative sales of Hyundai Motor cars in the United States since the company started doing business there 36 years ago hit 15 million on Wednesday. This was the day that the milestone was attained.

On Wednesday, Hyundai Motor America, the automaker’s US division, delivered its 15 millionth car to a client at the West Herr Hyundai showroom in Williamsville, New York. The dealership is located in the state of New York.

The export of the Excel model in 1986 marked the beginning of Hyundai Motor’s business in the United States. Between the years 1985 and 1994, Hyundai’s Ulsan facility produced the Excel, the automaker’s first forward-driving subcompact car. Production of the Excel took place.

In 2005, the car company opened a plant in Montgomery, Alabama. This was the first step in the company’s plan to grow in the U.S. market.

Because of what the plant in Montgomery did for the supply chain, Hyundai Motor Company sold 5 million cars in 2007 and more than 10 million in 2015.

Elantra, a rebadged version of Hyundai’s tiny vehicle, the Avante, was the company’s best-selling model in the United States. According to the Korean carmaker, a total of 3.53 million vehicles have been sold as of the month of December since it was originally presented to the automotive market in the United States in the year 1991.

After the Avante, the next car on the list of best-selling Hyundai vehicles is the Sonata, which is a midsize sedan, followed by the Santa Fe sport utility vehicle, the Accent subcompact car, and the Tucson SUV. The overall sales of the three models came in at 3.14 million, 1.91 million, and 1.34 million units, respectively.

The automobile manufacturer said that it was notable because it started its business in the United States on the basis of producing midsize sedans and compact automobiles, but 36 years later, its SUVs were making it onto the list of most-sold models.

The car company said that Hyundai is continuing to expand its line of cars in the U.S., with recent efforts focusing on cars that are good for the environment and run on electricity.

This year, Hyundai is the fifth-highest selling brand, having extended its product line, its manufacturing foothold in America, and its market share over the last 36 years, making it the fifth-highest selling brand overall. “We are pleased to see even more growth in 2023 and beyond, especially as we continue to extend the product range of electric vehicles we manufacture and our production capabilities,” Randy Parker, CEO of Hyundai Motor America, was quoted as saying.

In the meantime, Hyundai broke ground in October on a new electric vehicle facility that will be located in the state of Georgia in the United States.
