Hyundai Motor’s Response to COVID-19

2020.04.08 00:00:00 No. 16435

In the face of extraordinary challenges posed by an unprecedented public health crisis, Hyundai Motor is joining the global effort to combat COVID-19.


Our hearts go out to each and every person whose life has been impacted by the pandemic, and we express our sincerest gratitude to those working on the front lines of the international efforts to combat the disease.


Recognizing the sacrifices of healthcare professionals and volunteers, we are providing fleets of vehicles to frontline personnel to better enable their mobility when they need it the most.


We are working closely with governments to support communities that have been hit hardest by the pandemic in the form of donations, medical equipment, and personal protection items.


Understanding the financial burdens and mobility limitations our customers are facing, we are offering programs to take care of our customers during this difficult time.


Last but not least, we are doing our utmost to create a safe working environment for our employees by abiding government guidelines and placing their health and safety as our top priority.


The world may have stopped moving, but the need for seamless mobility is more dire than ever.


Hyundai Motor remains committed to serving the mobility needs of people, and will work closely with our partners and governments to ensure safe and stable movement of people and goods.


We remain hopeful and confident that together we can overcome this crisis, and will continue to play our part in the global solidarity to fight COVID-19.
