Honda and Hyundai are two different firms situated in different countries, despite the fact that their logos both use a “H.” Honda is headquartered in Japan, whereas Hyundai is headquartered in South Korea.
Soichiro Honda launched Honda in 1948 as a motorcycle manufacturer. In the 1970s, Honda had acquired worldwide renown for the company’s inexpensive and fuel-efficient automobiles. Honda was already well-known in the motorbike industry. In the 1960s, Honda produced a few tiny vehicles and sport racers, but the company did not take off until the release of the 1973 Civic, which was a hit among gas-conscious Americans. The Accord was introduced in 1976 and was even more successful than the Civic; by 1989, it had become the most popular automobile in the United States.
Chung Ju-Yung started Hyundai Engineering and Construction Company in 1947, and the company was renamed Hyundai Motor Company in 1967. The company exports automobiles to 190 countries worldwide. Hyundai operates a manufacturing plant off the coast of Korea, as well as the Namyang Technology Research Center, eight research institutes throughout Korea, and the Hyundai California Design Center. Popular Hyundai automobiles include the Genesis sedan and the Santa Fe sport utility vehicle.
