The Passenger Cars segment continues to be HARI’s volume driver with 5,986 units sold in Q1 2017 for a 15 percent growth from Q1 2016’s 5,186 units, with the Hyundai Accent remaining to be the brand’s best-selling nameplate with 3,835 units sold for the period, or 64 percent of all passenger car sales.
Hyundai’s Light Commercial Vehicles segment also grew by 23 percent for Q1 2017 at 2,855 units, with the growth being attributed to the Hyundai H-100 utility truck.
