Hyundai's sales in 2009 reached a record 11,031 thanks to a boost from the scrappage scheme. September 2011 has broken that record with 11,562 vehicles sold.

According to official figures released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, Hyundai has seen September sales increase year on year more than any other major automotive manufacturer.

While the market as a whole is down 0.8% month to date, sales for Hyundai have increase 37.1% compared to the same period last year.

Hyundai's sales in 2009 reached a record 11,031 thanks to a boost from the scrappage scheme. September 2011 has broken that record with 11,562 vehicles sold.

The Hyundai i10 was the best seller in September, with 3,701 units sold, followed by the i30 and the i20.

Hyundai UK's managing director, Tony Whitehorn, commented: "Hyundai has gained incredible momentum over the past three years, despite economic uncertainty.

"Scrappage enabled Hyundai in the UK to engage with new customers. More cars on the road has led to greater consumer awareness of our Company and our products, with sales more than doubling since 2008. September's figures, though, prove that this trend is continuing and with the addition of some exciting new models to the line-up this year, we are expecting this to be our best-ever sales year too."
