Hyundai HistorySource: Hyundai Motor America
Hyundai sold its first car in the U.S. in 1986. At the time, few Americans had ever heard of Hyundai or its products. Since then, Hyundai has upgraded its vehicle lineup and grown quickly into the 4th best-selling foreign manufacturer in the U.S. by making quality and safety its top priorities.
With the creation of thousands of U.S. jobs and over a billion dollars invested in the American market through the construction of Manufacturing, Engineering, and Design and Research facilities nationwide, Hyundai is committed to the community. The latest, most-advanced generation of Sonata LX's is being built locally, right here in our new state-of-the-art Alabama plant.
Every new Hyundai vehicle now demonstrates the emergence of an auto manufacturer whose products compete favorably with top-tier manufacturers from around the globe. After nearly 19 years in the U.S. automobile market, Hyundai continues to reinforce its commitment to sell the safest high-quality vehicles at the most affordable prices.
