In its 2013 annual sales report, however, Hyundai displaced Honda as the third largest automaker in the nation by obtaining 10.4 percent of the market share, equating to 20,033 units sold last year.

Chung Ju Yung founded the Hyundai Civil Engineering Company (HCCC) in 1947. Despite being bombed during the Korean War, HCCC managed to become one of South Korea’s leading construction enterprises in the 1950s. It was only in 1967 that Chung decided to shift to producing automobiles and founded the Hyundai Motor Company. The brand has made significant traction in the Philippine auto market because of its lower priced, but reliable models, especially in the van and SUV categories.
The Korean brand has been known as an alternative to the top Japanese brands in the country. Hyundai owns the largest car production plant in the world, which is located in Ulsan City, South Korea. This plant has the potential to manufacture 1.6 million automotive units a year. Hyundai is sold in more than 193 countries in the world and sponsors large global sporting events, such as the FIFA World Cup.
Hyundai performance and Technology
In 1968, Hyundai partnered with one of the automotive industry’s top leaders Ford to share assembly technology. In 1974, Hyundai, together with Ford, produced the Pony, a compact car, which the Korean auto company exported to various markets overseas.
In the following decades, the company would struggle to perfect its assembly technology. It was in 2001 that Hyundai began making its name with the hit Hyundai Elantra whose quality, reliability and overall performance showed the company’s much improved automotive design and assembling processes.
Hyundai has always aimed to provide the world’s best chassis. In its pursuit, it has installed numerous brake applications (such as anti-lock brake system and electronic stability control) controlled by an electronic system. It also has an active geometry controlled suspension (AGCS) which assists with sudden turning by providing steering wheel angle information, and a variable rack stroke which allows a better transition when performing a u-turn or parking maneuver.
