Following its best year ever for Fleet & Business sales in 2018, Hyundai Motor UK has further strengthened its business offering with a raft of investments across the board.
With a new team, a fleet-friendly product line-up, dedicated Fleet & Business initiatives and new partnerships in the pipeline, Hyundai Motor UK now has the structure to support the needs of more fleet customers than ever before.
In 2018, Hyundai sold 50,571 units in the Fleet & Business sector, or 56.2% of the total Hyundai sales volume. Key fleet-friendly Hyundai models played their part in the success, with Tucson and i10 retailing 19,919 and 7,625 units respectively. Hyundai’s market-leading innovations in alternative-fuel vehicles also shone, with the IONIQ – recently named Carbuyer.co.uk’s Company Car of the Year – achieving 6,360 Fleet & Business sales. The Kona crossover, meanwhile, offers style and practicality in the fastest growing area of the fleet sector, with the option of a 279-mile fully-electric version, too.
Michael Stewart, Hyundai Motor UK Director of Fleet, said: “Since joining Hyundai Motor UK in 2018, we’ve been incredibly busy building the fleet infrastructure that Hyundai’s astonishing model line-up deserves.
“Thanks to an expanded team of hugely experienced fleet specialists, some key developments to our dealer network and an absolute dedication to delivering the best experience for our fleet and business customers, I believe Hyundai now has all the necessary ingredients to really build on the progress that it has made in the fleet sector during recent years. Importantly, though, we’re not chasing volumes; our strategy is closely aligned to sustainable growth in True Fleet sales.”
