Dong-Jin Kim, Ph.D., Vice Chairman & CEO of Hyundai, talks about Hyundai and bringing new cars to the Americas.
Currently, the Sonata and Santa Fe are built in the Hyundai Alabama plant. Kim says there is “a possibility” that a midsize, SUV or minivan could be built in the Alabama plant. He ruled out a truck or the Genesis, the luxury car coming to America.
Kim addressed the issue that Hyundai has flex-fuels in Brazil and when they would bring them to America. He also talked about bringing hybrids to the Korean and American market.
Hyundai produces vehicles in India and sells them there. They also export from India to Mexico, under an agreement with Chrysler, and badge them as Dodges. This agreement is up for renewal in August 2007. Will Hyundai renew the agreement, or will they import Indian cars to Mexico themselves?
Will Hyundai import cars made in India to the United States?
