The country’s second largest car maker Hyundai Motor India on Wednesday reported a 12 per cent jump in domestic sales for November at 31,540 units.

The company had sold 28,162 units in the domestic market in November 2009, Hyundai Motor India Ltd. (HMIL) said in a statement.

The company’s total sales, including exports dipped 19.4 per cent with 44,542 units sold in November this year compared to 55,241 units in the same month last year.

Exports fell 52 per cent to 13,002 units from 27,079 units in the year-ago period, the statement said.

“Spurred by the festive season demand in November, HMIL continued to maintain steady growth in the domestic market although we were constrained because of the maintenance shutdown of both our plants,” HMIL Director (Marketing and Sales) Arvind Saxena said.

In December, the company expects the market to continue its growth trend, he added.

In its A2 segment (Santro, i10 and i20), the company sold 40,347 units, while in the A3 segment (Accent and Verna) sales were at 4,142 units.

The A5 segment (Sonata Transform) of HMIL witnessed sales of 14 units, while it’s new SUV Santa Fe received 39 buyers during the month.
