Korea Vehicle Sales : 2000-09

A record 57,000 were sold in Korea in 2005

Things continued to change in the Korean market. GM acquired Daewoo Motors, the Daewoo commercial division was taken by Tata, Renault likewise Samsung and SAIC took over SsangYong. Other than that it was business as usual.

Hyundai retained just under 50% market share for the decade. Its sibling brand Kia was consistently in the high 20's. 'Others' - being mainly SsangYong and Samsung - did increase their share but were a bit wobbly. Daewoo was the loser, dropping from 17% to a paltry 8%. 96% for local vehicles was huge and Daewoo's share of that was now very small. Imports rose from virtually non-existent to just noticeable.
