Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. (HARI), one of the country’s fastest growing automotive firms, marked another milestone with the inauguration of Hyundai Trucks and Buses Commonwealth, its first dedicated commercial vehicle (CV) dealership in Northern Metro Manila.


The dealership boasts a full lineup of commercial vehicles and world-class facilities to cater to freight, payload and mass mobility requirements of all business enterprises, government and institutional customers.


According to HARI President and CEO Ma. Fe Perez-Agudo, “It is only fitting that we open our first CV dealership here in Quezon City, along this bustling growth corridor at the heart of the National Capital Region. This state-of-the-art facility will not only showcase Hyundai trucks and buses known worldwide for their safety, quality performance, and durability but also the unrivalled Sales, After-Sales Service and technical expertise of its highly trained and certified dealer personnel.”


The new CV dealership complies with Hyundai Motor Company’s Global Dealership Space Identity (GDSI) standards to complement its best-selling models. The H350, a full-sized premium van that comfortably seats 14 with headroom of six feet three inches, has established a reputation for easy handling, comfort, and fuel-efficiency, literally dwarfing its rivals. The County, meanwhile, is becoming the commuter minibus of choice among the country’s top business establishments, particularly corporate clients requiring shuttle vehicles for its employees, tourist operators, and gaming/entertainment establishments. This minibus offers wider and taller cabin space, extra storage and plush passenger seats to provide best-in-class comfort, convenience and passenger safety. HTB-Commonwealth also carries light, medium and heavy-duty trucks such as the Hyundai HD truck series and the Xcient GT series which are built with rigidly constructed high-tensile strength steel frame perfectly matched with a powertrain that allows optimum performance under various load, ambient, and terrain conditions. As such, Hyundai trucks offer wide array of solutions to the rigorous demands of businesses and guarantee increased satisfaction and business profitability.


(The opening of HTB-Commonwealth) ushers in, not just another chapter of the Hyundai story, but also underscores our strong support for the government’s “Build, Build, Build” (BBB) program and private infrastructure projects. As a global brand with strong local roots, we understand the unique needs of our customers and we are proud to be a Lifetime Partner of the Filipino,” HARI’s top honcho furthered.


Recently, HARI achieved another milestone when it was recognized by Hyundai Motor Company as the 2018 Regional Distributor of the Year in the Asia-Pacific, Russia & Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), besting 25 distributors in the region.


Reinvigorating and supporting the company’s growth trajectory, total sales of Hyundai trucks and buses grew by 113.9% (YTD) in the first two months of 2019 versus the same period in 2018; and by 190.3% (YoY) in February 2019 versus February 2018.
