The robust sales of Hyundai Motor and Kia Motors came as total sales of hybrid vehicles in the U.S. fell 11.6 percent on-year to 100,456 units.

Hyundai and Kia trailed behind Japanese auto giant Toyota Motor Corp. and Ford Motor Co., which took the first and second places in terms of sales with 56,791 units and 19,583 units, respectively.

The brisk sales of Hyundai Motor and Kia Motors boosted their combined market share in hybrid vehicles to 15.9 percent in the January-April period, compared with 7.5 percent for the whole of 2011. (Yonhap)
