Hyundai Aims to Boost Sales

Hyundai Motor said Sunday that it aimed to boost its car sales in Russia by 27 percent to 75,000 units this year from a year earlier, with the launch of its flagship Sonata sedan in the fourth quarter.

Hyundai also completed the construction of its first plant in Russia with an annual production capacity of 150,000 units, which would commence production in 2011.

The automaker said it had sold 47,200 cars in the first eight months of this year in Russia, up 22 percent from a year ago and outperforming the market’s 14 percent growth. 


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
