Hyundai Motor Philippines Inc. (HMPH) makes its debut at the 8th installment of the Philippine International Motor Show (PIMS)—a development brought about by the Korean brand recently becoming one of the three new members of the Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines, Inc. (CAMPI).

Hyundai presented its manifesto as well as previewed its first purely electric car, the IONIQ 5. Hyundai’s cutting-edge “crossover utility vehicle” (CUV), which was recognized as the 2022 World Car of the Year, will arrive in the country in January 2023.

“Our vision is ‘Progress for Humanity’ because we are dedicated to understanding what people want in life. For us it’s not about going from A to B, it’s about creating time for the moments that truly matter. This is what we hope for our Filipino customers to experience when they own a Hyundai,” said Dongwook Lee, HMPH President, who led the brand’s opening day program.

“We are excited to hit the ground running and give Filipinos access to our award-winning smart technologies, advanced safety and driver-assist systems and of course our new ‘sensuous sportiness’ design philosophy in our range of passenger cars,” he added.

FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Test Drive Promo

Adding to the excitement, the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Test Drive Promo, featuring the new Creta, was also officially announced. Driven by Hyundai Motor Company (HMC) and extended to its global markets, the contest was borne out of its Goal of the Century (GOTC) pledge, which takes inspiration from how the sport of football becomes a catalyst that ignites team spirit and togetherness among its players and fans.

According to Lee, “We are committed to expanding our role beyond the transportation sector. As the third largest car manufacturer globally, we wish to become a mobility solution provider who will take the lead in creating a sustainable future for generations to come through ‘Goal of the Century’, our call towards a climate-positive tomorrow.”

By test driving the new Creta, Filipinos not only get to contribute to global sustainability, but also have the opportunity to fly to Qatar in the latter part of the year to watch a match at the FIFA World Cup. Full mechanics, terms and conditions are found at
