Vision

Progress for humanity – our vision of the future.

At Hyundai, we believe progress only becomes meaningful when it is connected with a deep sense of humanity. Humanity unites us, makes us stronger. It guides us in our investments and drives our innovations. It's these principles that we live by, allowing us to strengthen our relationships, feel connected and get more from life. We are here to do the right thing, for humanity.
Sustainable future with Hyundai

Brand Manifesto.

Our idea of future mobility is based on the strong commitment that we give to society. We are here to do the right thing, for humanity.
Our focus on humanity means we understand what people want in life. To get the most out of time we have.
We understand that time is the most precious commodity of all, the one thing money can’t buy.
That is how life is not just about spending time, it’s all about time well spent. Our purpose is to reinvent the 24 hours that we are equally given into quality time, making every moment truly worthwhile and rewarding.
This is our future mobility.
It’s not about going from A to B, it’s about the moments that truly matter.
Connecting people with quality time.

Progress doesn’t happen by chance, it is shaped by history.

At the beginning, there was a man with the determination to give his country and his children a new perspective. That’s why Chung Ju-yung founded Hyundai in 1947 – and that’s what shapes us to this day. The name ‘Hyundai’ means ‘modern times’, deriving from the Korean word ‘Hyun’ which means ‘modern’ or ‘present’ and ‘Dai’ which refers to ‘era’ or ‘generation’.
