Hyundai has announced significant growth in fleet sales at a rate that outpaced the market.
Demonstrating the Korean brand's strength, the 15 per cent rise in quarter (800 units) was significantly ahead of the UK's overall fleet and business sector, which increased by 12.5 per cent.
The positive start to 2015 is attributed to robust results for Motability sales and growing demand for the expanding range of Hyundai vehicles, several of which are new to the market in 2015.
This year alone, Hyundai has launched the new generation i20 hatchback and the popular C-segment model new i30. Still to come this year are a host of new vehicles, which are expected to be top fleet sellers for the brand, including the new i40 Tourer and the all-new Tucson SUV.
Martin Wilson, Hyundai UK fleet director, said: "Hyundai's growth is testament to our efforts and investment in meeting the needs of fleet buyers. Our comprehensive range of design-led vehicles deliver high quality at an accessible price, a crucial mix to get right for discerning business customers."
