Hyundai Worldwide Car Sales By Model : 1994-2013

This is a lot of data, but I decided to put it into one blog. Here are the brief descriptions below. The chart shows sales in hundreds.

Avante/Elantra/Stellar: These compact car models make up the best selling of the brand over these years.

Hyundai have come a long way since the Stellar

Verna/Accent/Excel: Another important model for Hyundai, a subcompact sized vehicle.

i40/Sonata/Marcia: A strong seller too in the mid-sized segment, the Marcia was a Korea only variant early on.

i10: A new city car model which technically replaced the Santro/Atoz, but the Santro still sells so I kept them separate.

i30: A small family car entrant to the range. It replaced the Elantra, but as the latter model seemed to be variable depending where it was sold, I kept it under Avante where it mainly belongs. I think I got that right.

i20: This super mini replaced the Getz, but with a bit of overlap in production time they are separate here.

Grandeur: As the name suggests a luxury car, big until 1998, then it became mid-sized. It replaced the Ford Granada in 1986, which was made under licence.

Eon: A new baby city car model for emerging markets.

Veloster: A compact coupe which replaced the Tiburon (also known as the Tuscani).

Genesis/Dynasty: This is a full sized luxury car.

Santro/Atoz: This city car was replaced by the i10 but still sells in India in dwindling numbers.

Equus: A full sized luxury car that replaced the larger Grandeur when it downsized in 1998, but I kept the Grandeur sales together. Until recently, it was sold only in Korea.

It looks classy 

Genesis Coupe: A sports car based on the Genesis luxury saloon platform.

Mistra: A China only compact car.

Getz/Click: Replaced by the i20, they overlapped in production and have been listed apart.
