The sweet spot at Hyundai, with John Krafcik

John Krafcik, President and CEO, Hyundai North America talked to Lou Ann Hammond, CEO,, about the sweet spot Hyundai is in when it comes to retail versus fleet.

Where is Hyundai in the ranking of retail customers?

Motortrend did a test of 5 cars that get 40 miles per gallon (mpg). The Hyundai Elantra came in last. Why, and what does Krafcik think of the test?

Hyundai uses the old General Motors method of different components for different cars. Is Krafcik considering buying more “like” components to save on cost?
