Hyundai Motor Company: Almost Forty Years of Innovation

The Hyundai Motor Company (현대 자동차 주식회사) was founded in 1967 by a Korean automotive specialist, Chung Ju-yung, who had previously worked with an American motor company. They initially collaborated with other auto manufacturers, but eventually released the first car manufactured exclusively by Hyundai in 1975. This started a long line of several successful models, earning the company a stable place as the fourth largest automobile producer in the world.

The Hyundai Pony, released in 1975, was a plain-looking car manufactured with the help of British car engineers. It was manufactured in five different models: a coupé utility, a sedan, a hatchback, and a station wagon. The line remained in production for twenty years.

The company’s first front-wheel drive, the Excel, was developed in 1985 from the design of the Hyundai Pony. In some markets, the Excel is marketed as the Pony as a throwback to its automotive legacy. The line was discontinued in 1994 to make way for the Accent.

The Hyundai Accent is a subcompact car that continues to be one of the company’s most popular products. The Hyundai Accent is distinguishable by its rounded, more streamlined design quite unlike its predecessors. Consumers favored the first-generation Accent for its price and durability, while experts laud its overall safety and quality, even citing it as one of the safest subcompact cars for driving in Edmonton and other cities with multiple seasons.

Following in the footsteps of the Accent, the Hyundai Elantra also boasts of sleek curves and a bigger built. The Elantra is built as a sedan, hatchback, and station wagon, unlike the Accent, which is available only as a sedan or a hatchback. Top Hyundai dealerships Edmonton residents trust carry the Elantra line, which is recognizable by its smooth capsule-like shape.

The Hyundai Sonata is perhaps the company’s most widely produced car, with around 2,000 units manufactured at Canadian Hyundai plants every week. The Sonata can be considered the “star” at any dealership showroom, with its unmistakable elegance and appeal. Like its predecessors, the Sonata has a very high score in safety. Green living advocates would also be glad to know that a hybrid electric version of the Hyundai Sonata, sold at your trusted Hyundai Edmonton dealership, was also released last year.

Hybrid electric vehicles sold at Hyundai dealerships Edmonton car buyers trust are equipped with conventional gasoline engines and rechargeable electric lithium-ion batteries. The electric battery takes over much of the propulsion until it runs out of power; only then does the gasoline engine take over.
