Hyundai Motor Company Australia has sold its one-millionth new vehicle in Australia. The vehicle, an ix35, was registered at 5:01pm AEST at John Hughes in Perth – which internal records suggest was the exact same dealership which sold the very first new Hyundai in Australia, some 26 years ago.
“We’re delighted that the millionth new Hyundai was sold in the same city where it all began back in 1986,” said Oliver Mann, Hyundai’s Marketing Director. “We will be sending our one millionth customer something special to share in our celebrations.”
Hyundai commenced its Australian operations through a single dealership in Perth in 1986, selling one single model. Since then, the company has grown quickly, passing the 500,000 mark in 2004. The brand’s growth accelerated following the establishment of Hyundai Motor Company Australia, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hyundai Motor Company, in 2003.
