Hyundai Tucson now the fastest selling Hyundai in the U.K.
New sales data out of the UK shows that since the Hyundai Tuscon was launched in September over 10,000 orders have been placed by car buyers, a further 85,000+ orders were taken at Hyundai dealerships across the rest of Europe.
Hyundai has upped production of the Tucson to meet demand for the SUV.
Built for Europe in the Czech Republic, the Hyundai plant is now operating at full capacity and has now produced more than 700,000 vehicles since it was opened in 2011.
Tony Whitehorn, President & CEO of Hyundai Motor UK, says the Hyundai Tucson has been a runaway success.
“The All-New Tucson has now overtaken the award-winning i10 as the fastest-selling Hyundai model launch in the UK. The best-selling model is the 1.7-litre SE Nav with over 34% of the total number.
“90% of our cars sold in Europe are designed, developed, and manufactured in the region ensuring products that meet the needs of our discerning customers. Our Czech plant plays a key role in our business enabling us to fulfil high demand.”
