Hyundai Motor decided to make an active push into the Mexican market, supported by increased awareness of its brand value, a reliable global production network and award-winning products. The new Mexican headquarters, located in Mexico City, will officially open in May.

“I”m honored to be part of these exciting times at Hyundai Motor and am eager to see the brand grow in Mexico,” said Mr. Pedro Albarran, the newly-appointed Managing Director of HMM. “Some of the top dealers in the nation have signed on to join our sales network and we will be ready to compete head on with other brands immediately.” Mr. Albarran, who was appointed earlier this year, has more than 12 years of experience in the automotive industry.
HMM”s product portfolio is still under review, while its dealer network will initially focus on the mid-Mexico area, such as Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey. HMM plans to release more details, including marketing and advertising activities, closer to the official opening in May.
