Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. (HARI) closed the first half of 2021 by maintaining its position as the eighth best-selling automotive brand in the Philippines.

The Korean vehicle maker sold 6,163 units during the full six months of the year— aiding the brand to retain the same position it held in May 2021.

Meanwhile, HARI also enjoyed five percent growth in June 2021 after selling 812 units versus the previous month’s 773 vehicles delivered. This movement, HARI stated, is a “positive indicator of increased activity in the economy, with June being the first full month of post-ECQ and MECQ in the NCR+ region.”

Showing the biggest increase month-on-month in terms of percentage  is the commercial vehicle (CV) segment.  This cluster experienced a 40-percent jump after selling 28 units versus the 20 trucks and buses rolled out to customers in May 2021. The HD50S gave the biggest share in the group with a month-on-month sales increase of 75 percent.

Notably, sales of the HD50S — which comprises the Class 2 and Class 3 Modern Jeepneys used in the PUV Modernization Program (PUVMP) grew by 775.8 percent year-to-date that helped improve the segment’s performance by 454 percent from the same period last year.

Meanwhile, the light commercial vehicle offerings continue to be HARI’s volume driver after selling 387 units last month — a 1.6-percent increase from the previous month’s 381. The Tucson and the Grand Starex were the company's movers for the segment, growing by 33.3 and 11.9 percent, respectively.

The passenger car (PC) models reflected a 6.7-percent upsurge in sales in June 2021 with 397 units, in comparison to the 372 units in May this year. The locally assembled Accent gave the biggest share in the PC sector with  a 13.6-percent rise.

HARI President and Chief Executive Officer Ma. Fe Perez-Agudo said, “HARI’s steady growth mode is a sign of how we, shoulder-to-shoulder with our nationwide dealership fortress, have grown in resilience through our 20-year journey as the Filipino’s lifetime partner in mobility. We are definitely driven to start a new chapter of HARI history, which may be the toughest one yet — recovery on to achieving equilibrium in the 'now normal' era. Thanks to the people of Hyundai, we’ll get there."
