Background on Hyundai
The Hyundai Motor Company, a multinational automotive manufacturer, was founded by Chung Ju-Yung in 1967. In 1968, Hyundai signed a two-year contract with Ford to share assembly technology and built the company’s first car called Cortina. The Pony compact, the first car designed and built in South Korea by Hyundai, was launched in 1974. Hyundai started exporting its vehicles overseas in 1975.
