HARI hits record sales for 2016

Attributed mainly to the steadily rising demand for automotive vehicles in the country, Hyundai Asia Resources Inc. (HARI), the official distributor of Hyundai vehicles in the Philippines, hit record sales ending the year 2016. Hyundai closed its Full Year 2016 sales with a 53% growth as compared to the previous year. Vehicle sales reached 8,674 units in the 4th Quarter alone, equating to a 62% Year-on-year increase.
As the front runner of HARI’s growth, the PC segment grew at a double-digit rate of 53% for the full year. Led by the Eon and Accent, the two name plates remain as part of the top selling passenger cars in the country. The Light Commercial Vehicles (LCV) segment was not far from the spotlight as it pushed to grow 52% of the same period from the previous year, with the well-loved Grand Starex passenger van leading the company’s LCV sales.
Sales and Economic Outlook
Philippine GDP expanded by 7.1% for third quarter of 2016 — the fastest quarterly expansion since the 7.9% GDP of the same period in 2013. Growth contributors include the consumer and infrastructure spending during the tail-end of the election period, as well as the buoyant business and consumer sentiment, adequate credit and domestic liquidity.
Amidst the proposal to increase taxes on both fuel and automotive vehicles, a strong macroeconomic foundation, higher disposable income, and an upbeat rating in auto-buying intentions, has kept an opportunistic view as the demand for automotive vehicles continue to show no signs of a slowdown. Hyundai’s positive growth strengthens this sentiment and has brought upon record breaking sales for the company for the full year of 2016.
