New Delhi : Automobile major Hyundai Motor’s November sales, including exports, increased by 28.1 percent at 57,080 units from 44,540 units sold in the like period of last year.

The company said sales were boosted by the company’s sedan Verna and hatchback Eon offerings, which were launched recently.

“In a challenging market we have been able to grow volumes and market share on the strength of our new launches – Verna and Eon,” Arvind Saxena, director, marketing and sales, Hyundai Motor India said in a statement.

Meanwhile, the company’s exports jumped by 69.8 percent in the last month at 22,080 units against 13,000 units in the corresponding period of 2010.
