Indonesia is a key hub for the Hyundai Motor Group’s future mobility strategy. In 2022, Hyundai Motor opened its first Southeast Asian production base in Indonesia, and since then, Hyundai Motor has been claiming the biggest market share in Indonesia’s electric vehicle market.
Since 2020, Hyundai Capital Services has been operating a branch in Jakarta, providing financial consulting and market research services. Indonesia’s financial sector is highly attractive for Hyundai Capital Services given its demographics, strong macroeconomic and fast growing economy. The newly launched entity is a significant milestone for Hyundai Capital Services and demonstrates the company’s confidence in Indonesia and long-term commitment to the market.
“Hyundai Motor has come in at the top of the electric vehicle market in Indonesia,” said Hyundai Capital Services spokesperson. “We believe this acquisition will position Hyundai Capital to leverage our capabilities to serve more tailored auto financial services to the needs of local customers and partners.”
Hyundai Capital Services is now active in 14 countries in the Americas, China and Europe, operating 16 entities and 2 branches globally. The company plans further expansion with the aim to support Hyundai Motor Group’s global mobility strategy.
