Press material

Hyundai Motor Company today announced global sales results for June 2021. The company sold 354,409 units globally last month, an increase of 14.4 percent from a year earlier. Its global sales are gaining momentum as automotive demand in markets around the globe is starting to recover.

Overseas Sales

The company sold 286,002 units outside of Korea, up 26.5 percent from a year earlier when sales were seriously affected by COVID-19. Robust demand drove sales increase in many global markets, including Europe, Russia, and South America, where market conditions have improved.

Korea Sale

Sales in Korea1 decreased 18.3 percent year-over-year to 68,407 units. Sedan models, including Grandeur (known as Azera in some markets), sold 9,483 units. Genesis luxury brand models also maintained steady sales, with the Genesis G80 sedan and Genesis GV70 SUV selling 5,357 and 4,138 units, respectively.

The company’s global sales showed gradual improvement with the rebound of the global auto industry from slow auto demand that occurred during the outbreak of COVID-19 a year ago.

Hyundai will continue to make efforts to effectively manage the ongoing threat of COVID-19 and the global parts shortage issue.
