Hyundai celebrates Sonata’s 30th anniversary


Hyundai celebrated the Sonata’s Sedan 30th anniversary, the most popular brand’s vehicle, which has sold more than 7.3 million units worldwide.

The Sonata, which is now on its 7th generation, originally appeared in the South Korean market in 1985 and began its North American inclusion in 1988, coinciding with the emergence of the second generation of this model.

Since then, Hyundai has sold more than 2.3 million Sonatas in the US, which has helped the South Korean manufacturer to become one of the major automakers in the North American continent.

Hyundai said that, since 2011, they have sold nearly 80 thousand hybrid Sonatas in the US and Canada.

From January to April 2015, Hyundai has sold 62 thousand 604 units of the model, about 2 billion more than in the same period of 2014.
