An Unexpected Auto Industry Pacesetter

ROB magazine profiles the evolution of Hyundai

TORONTO, April 28 /CNW/ - Car manufacturers have taken a beating these last few years. Yet, despite a recession and a challenged industry, 2009 was a banner year for Hyundai. So how did the Korean car maker manage to sell more than 100,000 vehicles in 2009 and become the hottest import in Canada? Supporters say Hyundai made a science of car making. But success for this car manufacturer is about the country where it was born, the leaders who have run the business and the savvy decisions they've made.

Writers John Daly and Mitch Moxley reveal the details of Hyundai's transformation and road to success in the May issue of Report on Business magazine, available Friday, April 30.
