South Korea's vehicle manufacturing industry effectively began with the founding of Kia in 1944. But it wasn't until 1970 that the company began producing motorcars, releasing it first model, the Brisa, in 1974. The Hyundai Motor Company was established in 1967, and is today the country's largest car manufacturer. SsangYong, the name of which translates into English as "Double Dragon," can trace its origins back to the early 1950s and is now known as KG Mobility.
