Hyundai is making a serious sales push in 2011. Last year, the automaker delivered 538,228 new vehicles to buyers in the United States, but Hyundai's New Year's resolution was apparently to make a run at the 600,000 mark. To accomplish this feat, Hyundai will boost production at its Alabama and South Korean assembly facilities. Workers are putting in overtime hours and even coming in on Saturdays to make sure supply can keep up with demand for the automaker's fresh lineup.
Through the first five months of 2011, Hyundai has sold 263,588 vehicles. At that pace, the automaker is on track to sell 630,000 units in 2011. There's a whole lot of market share out there for the taking, and Hyundai is working hard to make sure it gets as large a slice as possible.
