Thank you for visiting our website.

Where we hope you will gain an interesting insight into HYUNDAI in Europe.
Hyundai is proud to consider itself a citizen of Europe. More than 70% of all Hyundai vehicles sold in Europe are made in Europe, and almost 95% are designed, engineered and tested in Europe. We’ve invested more than €2 billion in manufacturing facilities in the region and created more than 47,000 jobs in our factories, headquarters, at our subsidiaries and distributors throughout Europe, and at our 2,400 European dealerships.

Some of the best designers and engineers from across Europe work at our Technical Centre in Rüsselsheim, Germany, ensuring

that Hyundai vehicles are styled to please European eyes, and that ride and handling characteristics are engineered for European roads and customer preferences. The results of this dedication can be seen and felt in products like our New Generation i30, which was shortlisted for Europe’s highly-prestigious 2013 Car of the Year award.

No wonder that Hyundai has been winning the hearts and minds of more customers. In 2008, Hyundai supplied 1.8% of all new cars sold in Europe; in 2012 that figure reached 3.5%.

It is not Hyundai’s goal, however, to become Europe’s largest automotive brand.  We would rather be the most loved brand.  That’s why our top priority is customer satisfaction.  From producing quality vehicles to providing an enjoyable ownership experience and excellent service, we are committed to ensuring Hyundai Quality in everything we do.

Independent surveys confirm Hyundai’s high customer satisfaction ratings. In Germany – possibly Europe’s most demanding car market – the authoritative Auto Bild Qualitätsreport ranked Hyundai number one for owner satisfaction in 2010 and 2011.

This dedication to meeting and exceeding customer expectations runs through our organisation at every level and perfectly encapsulates our global brand slogan, ‘New Thinking. New Possibilities.’ – the philosophy that premium quality and characteristics should be accessible to everyone.

We promise to always do our utmost to satisfy our customers, while benefiting the European economy and local communities.
