MONTGOMERY (AP) — Montgomery’s Hyundai plant reports that it produced more vehicles in March than ever before in a single month.

A preliminary report says the plant produced more than 28,000 vehicles last month. That broke the plant record of 27,157 set in May 2007.

Hyundai spokesman Robert Burns said he expected to have final numbers, including a breakdown of production by models and destinations, by next week.

Hyundai sold 28,483 Montgomery-made vehicles in March and 47,002 overall across the U.S.

That was the company’s best March for U.S. sales, and it set another record with 111,509 vehicles sold in the first three months of the year.
