Hyundai Elantra Is Top Selling Car in Canada

In December, Hyundai Auto Canada Corp. flew a bunch of automotive journalists to San Diego to test out the Hyundai Elantra. Steve Kelleher, Hyundai Canada’s chief executive told the journalists that he predicted that the Hyundai Elantra will be the best selling car in Canada in 2011. While such a confident claim isn’t unique among workers at their own car company, what is unique however is that (so far at least) what Steve Kelleher predicted has come true.

When the industry’s January sales figures arrived earlier this month–pronouncing Elantra as the best selling vehicle, of any type, in Canada–Mr. Kelleher admitted he was tempted to send the group of journalists an “I told you so” note.” (

Though I doubt Mr. Kelleher actually sent the automotive reporters an “I told you so” note, the fact that Kelleher’s prediction came true bespeaks to the quality of the Hyundai Elantra. Getting not only mostly positive, but stellar reviews, it’s easy to see what the Hyundai Elantra is selling so well.
