We here at Hyundai of St. Augustine love hearing about the awards and accolades being bestowed upon our favorite South Korean automaker, but we know that other feats sometimes speak more to the quality of the vehicles that they produce. Take for instance, the latest milestone that Hyundai is now celebrating at their Montgomery, Alabama plant with the production of their one-millionth Hyundai Sonata.
Producing one-million Sonatas says quite a bit about the integrity, value, and style of Hyundai's vehicles. It also says a lot about how much the public's demand for the Sonata has grown recently. In fact, demand for the Sonata has grown so much that the plant's production has been pushed past its 300,000 vehicle per year capacity for last couple of years.
And, no one could be happier about all of this than Hyundai's higher ups. Young Deuk Lim, Hyundai President and CEO, drove the celebrated one-millionth Sonata off of the quality inspection line with applause from the factory workers. The now famous millionth Sonata is a silver 2012 Limited Edition.
"I am so proud of everything our Team Members have accomplished in the past six years, eclipsing 1,000,000 total vehicles manufactured in November 2009, producing more than 300,000 vehicles in 2010 and now our 1,000,000th Sonata," said President Lim. "This milestone provides us an opportunity celebrate our many achievements and take pride in knowing our Hyundai spirit is alive and ready to reach any goal we set for ourselves."1
