Seoul [South Korea], May 4 (ANI/Global Economic): Hyundai Motor Company announced Monday that it sold 345,777 finished cars to domestic and overseas markets in April. This is a 106% increase from the same month last year.
Domestic sales declined 1.2% year-on-year to 70,219 units, but overseas sales increased 185.1% to 275,558 units.
