Hyundai Motor America has announced that its Elantra compact sedan has set another all-time sales record in 2012, surpassing last year’s total of 186,361 units earlier this month.
 
Hyundai hasn't provided a specific sales number for 2012, but said that with a week left for the year to come to an end, the Elantra could become the brand's second model to break the 200,000 unit mark in annual sales after the Sonata sedan.
 
“Adding the third shift to our plant in Alabama this year has allowed us to better meet demand for Elantra,” said John Krafcik, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor America. “Elantra buyers love its recipe of ALG-class-leading residual value, bold design, and outstanding value. With a full year of three-shift U.S. production in 2013 we hope to introduce even more American car buyers to Elantra next year.”
