Hyundai Motor Company - statistics and facts

Established in 1967, Hyundai Motor Company was the first South Korean car maker to develop and mass produce their own original automobile, the Hyundai Pony. Since then, the company has continued to grow into a major player in the global market, as well as maintaining a strong presence domestically. Hyundai Motor Company is now a global conglomerate operating in a variety of sectors, such as finance, advertising, and even professional sports clubs.

A global production network 

Hyundai Motors accounted for nearly half of the South Korean automobile market; this share would increase if its subsidiary company Kia Motors was to be considered. The company was far from a one trick pony. In fact, the leading models sold in the domestic market showed healthy sales across a variety of vehicle segments.

Keeping in line with the international nature of the company, Hyundai Motors had production facilities around the globe. Out of the leading countries in terms of car production worldwide, six of those had a Hyundai Motor Company manufacturing facility within its borders. The high standards of the produced cars received praise in overseas markets. A quality study’s results showed that Hyundai vehicles were among the most reliable new vehicles purchased in the United States.

Shifting towards green mobility 

The automotive industry is moving towards green mobility due to climate change and its ramifications. Electric vehicles seem to be the industry’s answer to this matter, with the electric vehicle market forecasted to multiply in size in the future. South Korea was one of the leading countries at the forefront of electromobility, and the role of Hyundai Motor Company as one of the major players will be something to keep an eye on in the coming years.
