Hyundai Motor America today reported May sales of Hyundai and Genesis branded vehicles of 60,011 units, a decline of 15 percent compared with May 2016. Retail sales for the month were strong with the overall decline attributed to a temporary reduction in fleet deliveries compared with May of last year.
