The company sold 1,389 units of the midsize G80 and 473 units of its flagship G90 in January in the United States, according to the data.
The combined sales of the two Genesis models, 1,862 units, accounted for 11.1 percent of the U.S.’ total demand of 16,702 over the same period. The total trails the 4,022 Mercedes Benz E-Class sold in January and the 1,849 units of the Cadillac XTS.
