Our founding spirit.

Despite humble origins, our founder, Chung Ju-Yung, was a born optimist. Starting as a rice delivery boy, he went on to set up a car repair service. This later became The Hyundai Motor Group, ‘Hyundai’ meaning ‘modern times’ – encapsulating his progressive vision

An ambition to rebuild.

Determined to help rebuild his country after the Korean War, Mr Chung forged ahead with a project to reconstruct the Goryeong Bridge. Hyundai quickly became responsible for building much of the country’s road infrastructure.

Seeking new challenges.

Having proven itself in building roads and bridges, Hyundai looked to bigger challenges. Ambitious new projects included the construction of the Soyang Dam and Jubail Industrial Harbour in Saudi Arabia, forged from steel produced at Hyundai’s very own steel plants.

Progress starts with imagination.

Familiar names such as Santa Fe, Tucson, i10, i20 and i30 were launched, with new models gaining respect of both industry experts and customers alike. With a regularly updated product range and an industry-leading warranty – Hyundai became one of the world’s largest car manufacturers.

Australian Steel

Our manufacturing process begins right here in Australia with Australian iron ore and coking coal. This is exported directly from the Australian mines to our manufacturing plants through our integrated global manufacturing operation to create the high-quality steel used in our cars today. This steel is a critical part of our vehicle manufacturing as it is hot stamped creating a composition that improves structural rigidity and increases the vehicles integrity giving our drivers peace of mind on the road.
