Hyundai Motor Sells its Millionth Vehicle in the UK
Hyundai Motor has today announced a significant milestone in its UK history – it has sold exactly one million vehicles since 1982 when it imported its first car, the Pony.
The landmark one millionth car is the all-new Tucson compact SUV which is Hyundai Motor’s latest and fastest-selling model in the UK. To celebrate reaching this milestone, the Company will give this top-of-the-range vehicle away through its #M1LLION campaign. The competition launches today and will ask users to nominate their ‘one in a million’ – a person they believe deserves to win the brand new car.
This landmark comes as Hyundai UK marks another milestone: 10 years as a global subsidiary. This was celebrated with “A Streetcar Named Hyundai” (www.astreetcarnamedhyundai.com) – a world-first zero-emissions driving challenge in London, which with the use of cutting-edge technology has created the first ever mosaic image made up of 503,919 photographs of every street in London. The final image was also revealed today at a special event held at the Sunbeam Studios in London.
