2016 may have been a disappointment for Korea’s
exports overall, but Hyundai Motor has a good
reason to celebrate: shipping a record-high
number of cars to the European market.

Beyond Europe, in said period, the Korean
car giant also sold more than 500-thousand
units in India, China the U.S. and at home
