Hyundai’s UK dealer network has now reached 141 sites following the appointment of 10 new dealers.
The 10 dealers opening are Whitehouse Maidstone Hyundai, Chorley Hyundai in Blackpool, Beechdale Hyundai in Derby, Marshalls Hyundai of Cambridge, Adam Purves Hyundai in Galashiels, Tunbridge Wells Hyundai, Platinum Hyundai in Chippenham, Keith Garages Hyundai in Aylesbury, Loders Hyundai in Yeovil and Benfield Hyundai in Newcastle.
Some of the dealerships have taken on the marque as an expansion of their multi-franchise sites. Other Hyundai appointments are replacing brands such as Chysler-Jeep, Subaru, Vauxhall, Saab and Mitsubishi.
The new additions to the Hyundai network will all be fully operational by early September and will feature Hyundai’s latest corporate identity.
Hyundai's sales have been riding high on the wave of scrappage scheme business which has seen its small i10 and i20 models selling well since the initiative was introduced on May 18.
The South Korean brand registered 3,737 new cars in August and scrappage accounted for a massive 2,921 portion.
The figures, which would have seemed inconceivable a few months ago, show that Hyundai’s overall sales for the month rose 323%. It gives Hyundai a record overall market share of 5.6%.
