About 60,000 units sold worldwide for 2013, 4,704 in Canada

One unnamed Hyundai executive is being quoted as saying “It still has not been decided” whether the Korean automaker will continue to produce the Veloster when the model is due for a facelift in two years, reports GoAuto.

“There is still debate as to whether it will happen,” continued the executive.

Sales have not met expectations and fewer than 3,000 units of the car were sold in Hyundai’s home market last year out of a global total of 60,000. Australia, one of the most popular destinations for the vehicle, sold just under 4,000 Velosters, while some 4,704 units found homes in Canada last year.
