Hyundai produce one car ‘every minute’
Back in 2008 Hyundai’s award winning manufacturing facility in Czech Republic opened and the first car to emerge from the line was the original Hyundai i30. Five years on the millionth car has rolled off the production line and it just happens to be the New Generation Hyundai i30.
Allan Rushforth, Senior Vice President and COO at Hyundai Motor Europe said “since 2008, we have developed our business to become a truly ‘European’ brand. Our Czech plant is at the heart of our European success, producing the two best-selling Hyundai models in the region and making one car every minute. It is cars such as the New ix35 and New Generation i30 that have helped us achieve a record-high European market share of 3.5% in 2012.” The Nošovice plant in Czech Republic produces the Hyundai ix20 MPV, the New ix35 compact SUV and the New Generation i30, the facility made 300,000 cars last year. As well as being manufactured in Europe, each model has also been designed and developed for the European market at Hyundai’s European Technical Centre in Rüsselsheim, Germany.
The New Generation Hyundai i30 really is a success story for Hyundai it offers high quality, low emissions plus great value. It has been voted the UK’s best value hatchback in the annual Practical Caravan, The Camping & Caravanning Club & What Car? Towcar Awards.

There are four main trim levels offered including Classic, Active, Style and Style Nav plus a choice of either petrol or diesel engines which include the latest 1.6 litre diesel that emits less than 100g/km Co2. A three door sporty version of the i30 has been added to the range for further choice.
