Hyundai Motor Group Chairman Euisun Chung Honored with the Issigonis Trophy at the 2021 Autocar Awards
Hyundai Motor Group Chairman Euisun Chung has today been honored with the Issigonis Trophy at the 2021 Autocar Awards ceremony.
Named in honor of legendary car designer Sir Alec Issigonis, the Trophy is Autocar's highest accolade. In recognizing the visionary leadership of Chairman Chung on the presentation of the Issigonis Award, Autocar editor-in-chief Steve Cropley said: “In the last decade the Hyundai Motor Group has grown into one of the world’s leading car firms, and chairman Euisun Chung has been key to that transformation.
“While Hyundai and Kia were considered unexciting budget brands with limited market share just a decade ago, under Euisun Chung’s leadership they have made incredible progress, winning market share and customers with cars that are the match of any mainstream rival.
“The Hyundai Motor Group has expanded into performance cars with Hyundai’s N division and the premium market with the new Genesis brand, and become a true industry leader in both electric and hydrogen-powered cars. It is no longer trying to catch up to rivals: now other car firms are chasing it.”
