Hyundai of America has officially announced that its all-new, still unseen on the US market 2011 Hyundai Elantra is about to join the staggering Sonata, in production at the Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama (HMMA) from this year's late fall. Scheduled for public debut at the forthcoming Los Angeles Auto Show this November, the 2011 Elantra has already showed its face in Korea approximately 2 months ago under the name Avante.

John Krafcik, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor America, shares: "Hyundai's philosophy is to build our vehicles where we sell them, and with the addition of the Elantra to our U.S. production mix we now manufacture our three most popular models right here in the U.S."

The all-new Elantra's US launch is planned for the early 2011. Its key highlights share identical levels of amazing styling and class-leading fuel economy as the 2011 Sonata, the most shopped vehicle in the auto industry for the last four months.

The 2011 Hyundai Sonata is the best-selling ride in the automaker's US lineup, with number of 128,484 sales though the end of August, a 50% increase over the same period last year. The Elantra sales through the same period are 90,960, showing 21% increase over the same period last year.
