Hyundai entered the United States market in 1986 with the subcompact Excel ? anyone remember Rodney King? Within seven months, Hyundai sold its 100,000th Excel and in doing so set a U.S. industry record for the most first-year sales for an import car company. That same year Hyundai sold 168,882 Excels far exceeding even the most optimistic forecasts.
