For almost 25 years, Hyundai has been a part of the Australian automotive landscape.
Hyundai is the fifth largest automotive group in the world, the fastest growing automotive brand in Australia, and is widely acknowledged as a global leader in design, safety and quality. We pride ourselves on building cars which deliver affordable technology to all Australians.
Hyundai’s automotive manufacturing process begins right here in Australia. The mining of resources including Australian iron ore and coking coal takes place in our own backyard. These raw materials are then exported directly to Hyundai Steel in South Korea for processing into the steel used in Hyundai’s vehicle manufacturing. Of the total raw materials imported by Hyundai Steel, over 60% is expected to have come from here, making Australia Hyundai’s biggest single supplier of raw materials.
Our latest i-series products, such as the i20 compact hatch and the i30 small car have been recognised by a number of Australia’s motoring clubs, motoring publications and Standards Australia; winning awards for innovative design, best in class operating costs and fuel efficiency amongst other attributes.
Hyundai is looking to the future too. Our global Blue Drive program includes hybrid technology, plug-in Electric Vehicles and Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles that emit only heat and water.
Sport and the community
Our passion and commitment extends to the competitive nature of great sport – including football (The Hyundai A-League), AFL (Carlton FC and Brisbane Lions FC), tennis (The Hyundai Hopman Cup) and golf (The JBWere Masters). We also involve ourselves in a number of important causes and community projects including Blue September™, Make Poverty History and Goals for Grassroots.
Hyundai Motor Company Australia (HMCA) was established in 2003 as a wholly owned subsidiary of the parent company in Korea, and has since gone from strength to strength both globally and locally.
