Hyundai Motor America Tuesday announced sales of 65,007 units, up two percent versus the same period in 2012 and up one percent the first six months of the year.

"June was another record-breaking sales month for us in what has been a strong first half of the year," said Dave Zuchowski, executive vice president of national sales. "We clearly felt the impact of the summer selling surge and our improved availability of award-winning vehicles was perfectly timed. Important third-party accolades, such as Genesis taking J.D. Power's trophy for highest initial quality in the midsize premium car segment and the all-new Santa Fe being named Automobile Magazine's Family Crossover for 2013, also continue to build strong momentum for our brand."

"With all of our plants continuing to operate at maximum capacity, sales of the U.S.-built Elantra soared 26 percent over June 2012," said John Krafcik, president and CEO of Hyundai Motor America. "Our Hyundai Assurance Connected Care program, now free for three years on most Hyundai models, continues to draw customers to our website and showrooms."

Fleet mix registered about 19 percent for the month. Certified Pre-Owned vehicle sales were 6,775 a June record, up 7.5 percent over June 2012.
