FOUNTAIN VALLEY, CA--Feb. 3, 2014: Hyundai Motor America today reported its best January in company history, selling 44,005 units for the month, up less than one percent versus the same period last year.

"While year-over-year sales were up slightly, January was a bit of a challenge due to weather issues across the country, making us wonder how many more units we could have sold," said Bob Pradzinski, vice president, national sales. "Even with our Alabama plant shutting down production of Elantra and Sonata for a couple of days, due to a winter snow storm that crippled Montgomery, our dealers are well stocked with a full lineup of vehicles ready to support customer demand."

Leading the way were Accent, Elantra and Santa Fe with sales up 21, 26 and 12 percent, respectively. Equus experienced sales of 327 units for the month, up 29 percent.
