Korea Car Sales By Brand : 2000-04

2004 Ssangyong Rexton 

Korea experienced economic downturn on this period as well, but not at a crisis level this time. Local car brands suffered although imports didn't, as they steadily made inroads, albeit at a low level of unit sales.

Local: The Hyundai Group clearly held top spot with both brands comfortably ensconced at the top. GM Korea had a steady downhill run through this period and was fending off Samsung for 5th spot.

Imports: Premium brands were now the main imported vehicles. Foreign cars must have been noticed with some regularity on Seoul roads by now. I got Mazda's figures years ago from somewhere, but they seem to have disappeared from sources now. How can car sales disappear? As 2005 showed no sales, this indicated they left the market.
