One of only 10 models to reach this achievement
Hyundai Motor Company has sold 10 million Elantras in 24 years of production hitting a milestone in the company’s history and joining only 10 other models in automotive history to reach this outstanding feat.
Known as the Avante in other markets in the world, the Elantra is Hyundai’s first model and since 1990 has sold an average of 420,000 units per year or approximately 1,100 a day to achieve this accomplishment.
"Reaching this historic mark is a testament to Elantra's staying power and the global appeal of a vehicle that delivers attractive design, functionality and class-leading performance. As a company it also shows our ability to quickly adapt to changing consumer preferences and continue to push the compact car segment with features once reserved for luxury vehicles," said Tak Uk Im, CEO, Hyundai Motor.
