Congrats to Hyundai! They have been executing their plans very well by developing vehicles which are better in quality and reliability. With the bad initial impression to rise to this level requires some real hard work which they seem to have executed really well.
They have some really good vehicles in Kia and hope they can bring it to India.
Who is in 10th?
Whoa! Now thats an achievement. Kudos to Hyundai . Guess the i series and the Genesis have helped them to reach the next level in terms of quality .
totally biased news.
1. Hyundai hasnt given its own total figures which is surprising as the news come from the company press release itself.
2. Since when did Nissan renault start filing their number differently?
3. Ford's figures are distorted. They are wholesale and not retails sales.
Have we not seen such cheap tactics by Hyundai before? Just search on team-bhp.
The term "largest" may be misunderstood for the financial might of the organization. Maybe "largest selling" is more appropriate.
In recent years, one automaker that gives Toyota sleepless nights is Hyundai. They see Hyundai as the one closest to doing to them what they did to GM/Ford.
When Japan started out in the early sixties, they were thought to make rubbish mickey mouse products. Korean products too had the same reputation when they started out in the eighties, and just as the Japanese reinvented themselves, so are the Koreans doing just that. I suspect that Samsung runs Nokia very close in cell phones, with a combination of promotion, technology, design and reliability, as do Korean electronic companies, in general. Expect Hyundai to do just the same in the automobile industry in the next 5-10 years. The i 10 and 20 certainly point in that direction.

Never expected this from Hyundai. I was mostly underestimating this Korean car maker. I always felt that this guy is somewhere at the bottom of the list.
Waiting for the time, when an Indian car maker can move to this level.
I am not sure about the profits, but Hyundai being No.4 in terms of sales was in the thread started by me.
