Hyundai held its first-ever commercial vehicle motor show in Korea.
South Korea’s Hyundai Motor Co plans to spend a lot of money by 2020 on a major offensive in commercial vehicles, to catch up with rivals in a rapidly growing global market. The company held its first-ever Commercial Vehicle Motor Show at the expansive outdoor area of the Kintex Exhibition Center in Korea. The event gathered around 170 mega vehicles for audiences and clients to examine, drive or simply gawk at.
The event was also where Hyundai launched and put on display its first mass-produced, pollution-free bus, the Elec-City that can run 290km on a single charge. The Elec-City’s carbon dioxide reduction is equivalent to 19,000 stocks of pine trees.

In case you’re unaware, Hyundai announced last year that it had plans to start building its H350 light commercial vehicles in Turkey to enter Western Europe. The Hyundai 350, also known as the Solati, is a premium minibus that can be used as a camping car, ambulance, and even a transport for Persons With Disabilities (PWDs).
Held in a 90,000sqm area, the event saw some 170 vehicles – around 50 commercial vehicles and roughly 100 specialized vehicles. It also was filled with an experience zone, driving skill zone, food trucks, and even a kid zone.
