Hyundai Motor America Reports June Sales

- Hyundai shatters all-time sales records for the month of June and the first half of the year - Hyundai sets a new all-time monthly market share record

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., July 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Hyundai Motor America today announced sales of 51,205 vehicles in June, a 35 percent increase compared with the same period a year ago. This represents an all-time sales record for both the month of June and the entire first half of the year for Hyundai. The all-new Sonata, selling as fast as the company's plant in Montgomery, Alabama plant can produce them, saw sales soar 49 percent while the all-new Tucson continued its torrid pace with sales up 207 percent over last June.

This marks the 18th consecutive month of year-over-year retail market share gains for Hyundai, while also setting an all-time total market share record. Year to date, Hyundai sales are up 25 percent compared with 2009 and are on target to eclipse 500,000 units of annual volume for the first time ever.

"June was a very tumultuous month for the industry with declining consumer confidence, housing market instability, and unexpected financial market volatility. In the face of this adversity, we were encouraged that Hyundai continued to outperform the market and seize additional market share gains," said Dave Zuchowski, Hyundai Motor America's vice president of national sales. "The strength of our new product has driven a 45 percent pure retail sales increase while simultaneously allowing us to reduce incentive spending by about the same amount. This is having a positive impact on residual values and bodes well for what is going to be a challenging second half of the year."

Hyundai Motor America President and CEO John Krafcik is confident the company is on track for its best year ever despite a still-sluggish economy. "We think the industry is on track for about 11.3 million units in 2010, roughly half a million short of earlier analyst projections," Krafcik said. "That represents less than a million units of growth from 2009, with higher industry fleet sales accounting for the majority of that increase. We've been able to run counter to that trend at Hyundai. While our total sales are up 25 percent calendar year-to-date, our fleet sales are down 21 percent. Our growth in 2010 is a testament to the power of great products like Sonata, Tucson and Genesis to resonant with retail customers and overcome tough economic conditions."

On a year-over-year basis, Elantra, Sonata and Tucson sales increased 119, 49 and 207 percent, respectively. Genesis sales set another all-time sales record and were up 40 percent, marking the 12th consecutive month of year-over-year sales gain. For the third straight month, Sonata is the third-best selling mid-size car in the country in retail sales, well ahead of strong rivals such as Nissan Altima, Chevy Malibu and Ford Fusion.

Kia Motors America Announces Best Sales Quarter Ever

Best-Ever June Sales Led by the 2011 Sorento CUV

IRVINE, Calif., July 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Kia Motors America (KMA) today announced its best sales quarter ever of 93,373 units, bolstered by the company's best June sales ever of 31,906 units, a 12.8-percent increase over the previous June best in 2008. Year-to-date sales of 170,069 are up 15.4-percent, and the 2011 Sorento CUV was KMA's best-selling vehicle for the sixth consecutive month with 8,608 units sold.

"Kia Motors' design-led transformation is attracting new buyers to Kia showrooms, as evidenced by our best-ever first half of the year sales," said Byung Mo Ahn, group president and CEO of KMA and Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia (KMMG). "Consumers are taking notice of the eye-catching design and long list of comfort, convenience and technology features found in our new generation vehicles, including the Sorento, Soul and Forte, and our aggressive launch schedule will continue with the arrival of the all-new Sportage this summer followed just a few months later by the all-new Optima."

Kia Motors is in the midst of a dramatic, design-led transformation, which has been delivering dynamically styled vehicles in several important segments at exactly the right time, contributing to the brand's continued gains in U.S. market share. With three new vehicle introductions and several other key initiatives planned for 2010, Kia is poised to continue its momentum and build the brand through design innovation, quality, value, safety features and with new technology such as UVO powered by Microsoft®(1), an advanced hands-free in-car communication and entertainment system (expected to be available in select Kia models in the U.S. later this year).

"This 35 percent increase in year-over-year sales shows that we continue to build on our sales momentum," said Fred Diaz, President and Chief Executive Officer - Ram Truck Brand and Lead Executive for U.S. Sales. "Consumer buzz is building tremendously with the arrival of our all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee in dealerships now, as well as the continuing accolades for our new Ram Heavy-Duty pickup trucks."

Chrysler Group reported total U.S. sales for June of 92,482 units, an increase of 35 percent versus June 2009 (68,297 units), even in the face of a softer-than-expected June for the industry.

Chrysler Group finished the month with a 60-day supply of inventory (221,726 units), a 14 percent increase versus June 2009 (195,272 units). The 60-day supply is down from a 71-day supply in June 2009. Overall, U.S. industry sales figures for June are projected at an estimated 11.4 SAAR.

"As we enter the busy summer travel season, all four of our brands - Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge and Ram Truck - enjoyed sales increases during June," Diaz said. "Our minivan pledge continues to resonate with consumers, as both the Dodge Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country minivans posted significant year-over-year sales increases."

The new 2011 Jeep® Grand Cherokee started arriving in dealerships in June and will be available in greater volumes this month. The new Grand Cherokee follows the introduction of the all-new 2010 Ram Heavy-Duty pickup trucks and the all-new 2011 Ram Chassis Cab. Chrysler Group later this year will launch 16 all-new or refreshed products representing 75 percent of the model lineup.

Ford Delivers Strong, Balanced Sales In First Half 2010; New Super Duty, Mustang Pace June Sales Growth


DEARBORN, Mich., July 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --   --  Ford, Lincoln and Mercury first half sales totaled 954,745, up 28
     percent versus year ago; June sales totaled 170,900, up 15 percent
 --  New 2011 F-Series Super Duty and Mustang models are off to a fast
     start. Super Duty sales were up 58 percent in June versus year ago;
     Mustang retail sales increased 37 percent
 --  First Fiestas delivered to U.S. customers
 --  Ford's retail market share continues to grow for the 20th time in 21
     months as buyers turn to Ford's fresh lineup of high-quality,
     fuel-efficient vehicles; Ford brand now has the highest initial
     quality among all non-luxury brands, according to J.D. Power and
     Associates' 2010 Initial Quality Study


Ford's newest models helped the company conclude a strong first half as Ford, Lincoln and Mercury dealers delivered 170,900 new vehicles in June - a 15 percent increase versus a year ago. Year-to-date sales totaled 954,745, up 28 percent with growth across Ford's full family of cars (up 27 percent), utilities (up 24 percent) and trucks (up 32 percent).

Sales for the 2011 F-Series Super Duty were 58 percent higher than a year ago, capturing more than 50 percent of the heavy duty pickup segment - believed to be the first time since year 2000 that Super Duty has achieved a 50 percent share.

Retail sales for the Mustang were 37 percent higher than a year ago. Since the arrival of the 2011 model, featuring new V-6 and V-8 engines that deliver more horsepower and improved fuel economy, Mustang's share has climbed to a level not seen in 13 months.

Another new product, the Ford Fiesta, is on its way to U.S. dealers and their customers. Highly-acclaimed in Europe and Asia, the Fiesta is the first car developed by ONE Ford's global product development system.

"New products continue to drive Ford's success," said Ken Czubay, Ford vice president, U.S. Marketing, Sales and Service. "Ford and its dealers continue to offer customers the strongest value proposition - leading fuel economy, quality and resale value on a wide range of vehicles. That's why our business is growing."

In June, Ford retail sales were up 15 percent versus a year ago, and Ford gained retail market share for the 20th time in the last 21 months. Fleet sales also were up 15 percent, primarily reflecting higher sales of Ford's hard-working trucks to commercial customers.

Strength Across the Lineup

Once again, sales were higher throughout Ford's lineup in June - continuing a trend that began in December. Trucks paced the year-to-year results with a sales increase of 25 percent, while cars were up 16 percent and utilities increased three percent. Year-to-date, car sales were up 27 percent, utilities grew 24 percent, and trucks were up 32 percent.

 Other sales highlights include:
 --  Demand for the Ford Fusion, Motor Trend's Car of the Year, remains
     strong as sales of 18,412 nearly matched last June's record.  Ford
     Taurus sales totaled 6,607 in June, up 191 percent and Ford Focus
     sales were up 20 percent.
 --  With sales of 46,502, Ford's F-Series posted a 29 percent sales
     increase in June. Year-to-date, F-Series sales totaled 240,345, up 34
     percent. F-Series is the only vehicle sold in the U.S. to surpass
     200,000 sales in the first half of 2010.
 --  Utility vehicles also posted higher sales. Ford Edge was up six
     percent, Escape was up one percent, and Mariner was up 35 percent.
     Ford Escape is America's best-selling utility vehicle. Sales for the
     Ford Explorer (up 28 percent), Mercury Mountaineer (up 31 percent) and
     Lincoln Navigator (up 14 percent) also were higher than a year ago.

Chevrolet-Buick-GMC-Cadillac Sales Increase 36 Percent in June

DETROIT, July 1 /PRNewswire/ -- - Sixth straight month that GM's four brand's sales increased by more than 20 percent

- Calendar-year-to-date sales for GM's four brands are up 32 percent

- GM full-size pickup sales increase 27 percent; up 12 percent year-to-date

- GM crossover sales are up 81 percent year-to-date

June sales for Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac increased by a combined 36 percent to 194,828 units in the United States. This is the sixth straight month in which sales for GM's brands increased year-over-year by more than 20 percent. Year-to-date sales for the four brands also have risen 32 percent to 1,069,577 units - an increase of 258,368 units compared to last year.

The increase was fueled by the continuing success of the company's launch vehicles, its growing sales of compact, midsize and luxury crossovers, and some recovery in the markets for pickups and full-size SUVs.

The resurgence in large pickup truck sales was a key factor behind June's results, according to Don Johnson, vice president, U.S. Sales Operations. Combined sales of the Chevrolet Silverado, Chevrolet Avalanche, and GMC Sierra were up 27 percent for the month, compared to June 2009 and are up 12 percent year-to-date.

"As companies continue to invest in their businesses, we expect this segment to continue to recover," said Johnson. "We think the release of some pent up demand in the pickup market is an indication that a fundamental part of the U.S. economy is gradually strengthening."

GM's launch vehicles continue to be a driving factor behind the company's sales increases. Retail sales of the Chevrolet Equinox and Camaro, Buick LaCrosse and Regal, GMC Terrain, and Cadillac SRX and CTS Wagon have increased 222 percent year-to-date through June and totaled 172,083. This represents about one out of every four retail sales for GM.

June Crossover Performance Keeps GM the Industry Crossover Leader

Chevrolet and GMC dealers reported 16,093 deliveries of the Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain - a 208 percent improvement from June 2009. For the year, sales of these vehicles are up almost 193 percent, to 94,105 sales through June.

Mid-size crossovers Chevrolet Traverse, Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia continued to show improvement. During June, their combined sales increased 39 percent. Year-to-date, they are up 28 percent.

The Cadillac SRX luxury crossover maintained its impressive run with an increase of 462 percent during the month. Year-to-date, SRX sales are up 488 percent.

Month-end dealer inventory in the U.S. stood at about 438,000 units, which is about 30,000 higher compared to May 2010, and about 144,000 lower than June 2009.

Audi June Sales Increase 14.3%; Brand Sets Half-Year Sales Record

HERNDON, Va., July 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Audi today reported that strong June 2010 sales propelled it to the best first-half results of any year since it began selling cars in the U.S. market.

The 48,440 vehicles Audi sold in the January-June 2010 period eclipsed the previous first-half record of 45,711 vehicle sales set in the first six months of 2007. For June 2010, Audi reported sales of 8,601 cars and SUVs, a 14.3% increase above the 7,524 cars sold a year earlier.

"We are very optimistic that 2010 will wind up as the best year Audi has ever enjoyed in the U.S. market," said Johan de Nysschen, President, Audi of America. "We are in the enviable position of having an entire lineup of vehicles that American consumers are clamoring to own. In fact, what's holding us back at this juncture is not having enough of the cars in stock to sell."

Several Audi models showed sales gains in June to continue their 2010 momentum. Demand for the Audi A3, including the 2010 Green Car of the Year Audi A3 TDI®, soared 83% in June and in the first six months of 2010 stood 104.2% percent ahead of sales last year. Other strong performers in the month were the Audi A5/S5 coupe and cabriolet models, the Audi Q5 crossover and the Audi A6 luxury sedan. If sales of the discontinued A4 Cabriolet model are removed from the sales totals, June demand for the best-selling Audi A4 line finished ahead of year-earlier sales and kept up with elevated sales pace set in the past three months of 2010.

 Audi sales highlights - June 2010
 --  Six-month sales of 48,440 topped the record of 45,711 set in 2007.
 --  Audi A3 June sales increased 83%; Audi Q5 crossover sales rose 48.3%.

 Audi A6 June sales and news notes
 --  Sales resurgence: up 20.1% in June; up 31.6% CYTD.

     of 20% mix.
 --  Audi Q7 TDI sales mix of 37.2% were limited by availability of product
     in showrooms.

 NISSAN HIGHLIGHTS
 --  Nissan vehicles posted sales of 56,266 units in June compared with
     51,994 units sold in June the previous year, an 8.2 percent increase.
 --  June marks the Nissan division's ninth consecutive month with a
     year-over-year sales increase.
 --  All truck models (including crossovers and SUVs) showed gains, led by
     Rogue, which set a new June record with 6,959 units sold.
 --  Versa sales continue to grow, with deliveries up 23.6 percent for the
     month.


"We continue to see strength in Nissan's lineup of trucks and crossovers," said Al Castignetti, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division. "At the same time, Versa continues to lead the pack in its segment, with buyers attracted to its unique combination of value and efficiency."

 INFINITI HIGHLIGHTS
 --  Infiniti sales for June 2010 were 8,304 units, up 31.7 percent from
     the 6,304 units sold in the same month a year earlier.
 --  Every model in the Infiniti lineup posted double-digit percentage
     gains over June 2009.

 --  Sales of the refreshed Infiniti G lineup rose 25.7 percent (sedan
     sales up 33.1 percent; coupe sales up 10.8 percent).


"Our sales growth in June was fueled by the renewed Infiniti M and G Lines, but every one of our products showed sales increases over last year," said Ben Poore, vice president, Infiniti Business Unit. "This momentum should continue to build as the all-new 2011 QX begins to arrive in our showrooms."

NOTE: To ensure consistency in global sales reporting, Nissan North America calculates monthly variances on a straight-percentage basis, unadjusted for the number of selling days. Both June 2010 and June 2009 had 25 selling days, so there is no variation between the two calculation methods.
