Hyundai’s Jan-Aug sales slightly down

Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. (HARI) said sales in the first eight months of the year reached 22,329 units, slightly lower than last year’s 22,511 units.

In a statement over the weekend, HARI said sales of passenger cars reached 11,821 units, down by 15 percent from last year as the entire market continues to shift to sports utility vehicles.

Commercial vehicle sales, on the other hand, more than doubled to 644 units from last year’s 288 units.

Month-on-month, sales of Hyundai went up by 19 percent to 2,539 units from 2,136 units in July.

“Our sustained performance amid external challenges is a result of our never-ending effort to provide excellent after-sales services and premium products for Filipino motorists. Challenges come and go, but we go the extra for our customers who will never forget their positive experience with the Hyundai brand,” HARI President and Chief Executive Officer Ma. Fe Perez-Agudo said.

“We continue to establish strategic partnerships to empower businesses by solving mobility challenges such as ‘last mile logistics’,” she added.

Recently, HARI and Lalamove entered into a partnership that allows business partners to get the most out of Hyundai’s H-100 light truck.

The partnership will deliver several benefits and perks to Lalamove partners using H-100 vans, including deep discounts for parts and service, faster turnaround on preventive maintenance service (PMS), fixed rates for picking up and delivering units for PMS, and a program for fleet expansion and re-fleeting.
