Literal meaning Beijing Hyundai Motor Co., Ltd.

Beijing Hyundai Motor Co Ltd is an automobile manufacturing company headquartered in Beijing, China, and is a 50:50 joint-venture between Beijing Automotive Group and Hyundai Motor Company. Established in 2002, it manufactures in Shunyi District, a satellite city of Beijing,[1] producing Hyundai-branded automobiles for the Chinese market.

2010 saw the company sell 700,000 vehicles.[2] Were it not a subsidiary such sales figures would have placed it as the sixth or seventh most-productive Chinese automaker. It did make the third most-purchased model in 2010 in China, the Elantra.[3]

HistoryEdit

The company may initially have imported components rather than relying on local suppliers.[4]

ProductsEdit

Hyundai ix35 SUV (China) - 2012

Beijing Hyundai ix35 SUV

At least three Hyundai models are solely sold on the Chinese market. The BT01, indigenously designed; Lingxiang (

), an interior-and-feature localized Sonata NF; and Yuedong, a localized version of the Elantra.[5] All are tailored to Chinese tastes.

ModelsEdit

Shouwang brandEdit

Cheaper[6] products will soon be sold under a new, China-only brand name, Shouwang.[7] Its first model is based on an older Hyundai Elantra.[8]

Production bases and facilitiesEdit

As of 2009, the company has at least three production bases as well as an R&D center, all of which are probably in the Linhe Industrial Development Zone of the Shunyi District, a satellite city of Beijing.[9] Two of these produce automobiles and the other, engines.[9]

Its first automobile production base was completed in 2003 and the second in April 2008.[10] Construction on a third Beijing base begun in late 2010 should be complete in the second half of 2012.[11] At least one of these facilities is 17 km from Shunyi Yangzhen.[12]
