Crossing Over a Milestone: The Hyundai Santa Fe Sells its One Millionth Model

The Hyundai Santa Fe has had an illustrious history in US. Hitting the scene way back in 2000, the design and concept was very new to the automotive industry. Like most game-changers, the crossover even took a little heat from the critics early on. However, the public got behind it right away and it quickly became a top seller in the new Hyundai lineup.

Here we are a few years and a couple generations later, and the Santa Fe is still widely successful. In fact, one lucky American driver just took home the one millionth model.

President and CEO of Hyundai Motor America, John Krafcik, looks back on the vehicle's wild ride: "When the 2001 Santa Fe launched in the United States 13 years ago, not only was it Hyundai's first SUV, but it was one of the first compact crossovers on the market.... It was a bold move that paid off and helped position Hyundai as a brand that could innovate in design and package, not just value and warranty."1

It certainly has paid off. The SUV has played a major role in Hyundai's overall success in America. Even today, the nameplate is helping to draw new drivers to the brand.
