MD Hyundai Dealer Takes a Look at the Automaker’s History

By: Pohanka Automotive Group

When you visit our MD Hyundai dealer, we’re proud to say that the vehicles we sell speak for themselves. Hyundai has built an outstanding reputation for quality and reliability. A sterling reputation like that doesn’t happen over night, though, so we’re taking a look back at the road that brought the automaker to where it is today!

These days, Hyundai is Korea’s largest automaker, as well as the fourth largest globally. In addition to being Korea’s largest, though, it’s also the country’s first automaker.

The Hyundai Motor Company was established in 1967, built from the Hyundai Engineering and Construction Company that had been founded 20 years prior. While Hyundai soon created Korea’s first mass-produced vehicle, the automaker didn’t reach North American soil until the mid-1980s. Since then, the company—as well as its reputation—has continues to grow into what it is today!

A Korean Company Rooted in America

While Hyundai may be a Korean company, many of the 2017 Hyundai models at our MD dealership that you love are built right here in the United States!

Hyundai does much of its work at a design & research center in California, an engineering facility in Michigan, and a manufacturing facility in Alabama where many of its popular models are built. The Alabama facility is particularly noteworthy, as the $1.1 billion facility is recognized as one of the world’s most advanced, churning out each Hyundai vehicle in just 19 hours flat.

All told, Hyundai has invested over $2.8 billion into the US economy. In fact, the company has created over 94,000 jobs here on US soil! Hyundai may fall into the foreign automaker category, but American shoppers can feel good knowing that the company has plenty going on here at home.
