Finding Car Insurance for a Hyundai

The History of Hyundai in Canada

The first Hyundai cars sold in Canada were targeted at drivers looking for an affordable and well made vehicle. In 1983, a lot of manufacturers were producing high end and luxury models but Hyundai instead launched the Pony, a much cheaper automobile than others sold at the time, and it quickly become a hit. Young families, students and other first time drivers were drawn to the Hyundai Pony. Hyundai remains one of Canada’s top selling foreign cars and in 2010 they sold 2.6 million vehicles – a staggering feat from one of the fastest growing car companies.

Hyundai Canada’s “Cash For Clunkers” Program


In 2009, Hyundai became the first company in Canada to offer a scrap-it incentive. As part of the program you would receive up to $1000 towards a more fuel-efficient Hyundai automobile, if you trade in your old car or truck. The incentive program was conceived after seeing the success of similar initiatives in the United States such as the “cash for clunkers” program. With that program, the US government offered up a much larger $4,500 trade-in when people were to purchase a newer – more fuel efficient car. These programs have been helping boost auto sales in North America and Europe over the past few years. For example, France and Germany have seen their automobile sales increase due to their “scrap-it” incentives.
