SEOUL -- The Hyundai Motor group's monthly global sales have risen for the first time since the coronavirus gripped the world, with tax savings on auto purchases in South Korea and promotions in the U.S. helping to spark demand.

South Korea's biggest auto group sold roughly 620,000 vehicles worldwide in September, up 0.7% from a year earlier and the first gain in eight months. Sport utility vehicles were particularly in demand in South Korea and the U.S.
