Hyundai’s Elantra registered the highest number of sales in November. Juma Al Majid, the sole distributor of Hyundai Motor in the UAE reported; Elantra has achieved a staggering 90% more sales when compared to same period last year.
Behind the success in Elantra sales is Hyundai’s aggressive marketing campaign, which was launched last November. This promotion has seen Elantra sales forming a 43% of the total sales during the month. A central feature of the campaign was cash discounts offered on the model with a starting price of AED 49,900.
“The Elantra promotional campaign is undoubtedly our biggest marketing success story to date. We were able to tie considerable cash incentives into a message about the vehicle’s performance, economy, luxury, style and value for money. It is a marketing imperative for us to design campaigns that exceed our customers’ expectations,” said Khaldon Abdul Hafiz, Marketing Manager for Hyundai UAE.
Khaldon continued: “Because of the campaign’s clear success, which has led to such a high demand for the Elantra in Hyundai showrooms across UAE, we have extended the marketing campaign till the end of December. However, the demand is huge for this campaign and we do only have a small number of units left, so I would advise anyone who is interested to visit their nearest Hyundai showroom immediately”
