Hyundai Auto Canada Corp. posted its strongest August ever for certified pre-owned sales, moving a shade less than 1,300 units.
Calling it “another great month for Hyundai’s H-Promise CPO program,” Charles Plewes, who heads up CPO and remarketing for Hyundai Canada, said the 1,292 CPO vehicles sold by Hyundai’s Canadian dealers last month was a 27% year-over-year increase.
This performance follows what was two consecutive months of best-ever CPO sales for Hyundai Canada.
Its dealers moved 1,366 CPO vehicles during July, kicking off a strong start to the second half of the year.
Hyundai closed the first half by moving 1,246 certified vehicles in June, which was an all-time high.
Elsewhere, Nissan had 1,028 CPO sales for August, down from 1,561 a year ago. Year-to-date sales are at 7,287, down from 10,571 through eight months of 2019, according to results provided by the automaker.
Infiniti moved 145 CPO units in August, compared to 207 a year ago. In eight months, it has sold 1,043 certified vehicles, compared to 1,360 in the year-ago period.
It should be noted that August 2019 was an all-time record for both Nissan and Infiniti.
