Since 1967, Hyundai has had four decades of incredible progress. During this period we’ve developed cutting-edge technology in all the right areas and we’ve been striving to strengthen our leadership in clean technology. We started with the world’s first mass-produced hydrogen-powered vehicle, ix35 Fuel Cell, and this year we’re launching IONIQ - the world’s first model with three electrified powertrains in a single body type. 

At the heart of our brand is the desire to think differently and always challenge convention. It’s this relentless commitment to innovation and our forward thinking philosophy that’s seen us arrive at where we are today. We sell technologically-advanced, high quality vehicles to people in more than 190 countries and employ over 110,000 people worldwide. 

2016 is the latest chapter in our innovation story. As title partner of the Hyundai Mercury Music Prize, we’re proud to support the UK and Ireland’s most innovative musicians, in their endless pursuit for musical perfection.
