About Hyundai

Since 1967, Hyundai has had four decades of incredible innovation. 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, the IONIQ - the world’s first model with three electrified powertrains in a single body type and this year we’re launching the KONA, a small SUV with distinctive style and the latest in innovative technology.

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. ??2017 is the latest chapter in our innovation story. As title partner of the Hyundai Mercury Prize, we’re proud to support the UK and Ireland’s most innovative musicians, in their endless pursuit for musical perfection.

Inspiration can strike anywhere, but to take that spark and turn it into a masterpiece we need to find a place where we can shut out the noise and distractions of the world. Somewhere where we can hear our inner voice – where we can find our rhythm. The 2017 Hyundai Mercury Prize is dedicated to this pursuit of creativity, and to all the artists, creators and innovators who find their rhythm and follow their passion. ??To see how you can get involved in the 2017 Hyundai Mercury Prize to win an All-New Hyundai KONA, visit mercuryprize.hyundai.co.uk
