Hyundai Motor has honoured its best-performing European dealers during an award ceremony held 3 May 2016 at the Union Halle in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, close to the company’s European headquarter.
168 dealers from 24 countries were honoured, for their results in sales performance and customer satisfaction. From this group, 18 dealers - the top of the tops - received the highest accolade: the President Award.
The winning dealers also received an early insight into the All-New Hyundai IONIQ, which will be in European dealer showrooms from the end of the third quarter. IONIQ is the first car in the world that offers customers three electrified powertrains to choose from: Hybrid, Electric and Plug-in hybrid. It makes Hyundai Motor the only car manufacturer to sell all of these solutions as well as fuel cell electric vehicles.
The innovative All-New IONIQ is a symbol of the future for Hyundai Motor, and our dealers are the ones who introduce this future to our customers. As we look to further strengthen our business and shape perceptions of our brand, we will continue to support our dealers in Europe, rewarding high performance and fostering excellence in all areas of customer experience.
