Hyundai had been around much longer before it first arrived on the shores of the United States in 1986. Hyundai was founded in 1947 by Chung Ju-Yung as the Hyundai Engineering and Construction Company. Established in 1967, Hyundai released its first car the Cortina in 1968 and even then, it was associated with a United States company, Ford Motors. By the year 2012, the company plans to manufacture around 2,500 units. The company also made a statement that it would be too early to say that in which markets the Blue On would be launched first.

A spokesperson of the company said that they are taking a baby step. There is no infrastructure such as charging stations in Korea and many other countries.

On the other hand there are other automakers too with their electric vehicles but the high cost and the limited range of these vehicles are looked upon as the biggest hurdles for their widespread adoption. The Mitsubishi Motors Corp of Japan was the first major carmaker to introduce pure electric cars. Its i-MiEV electric car was introduced in Japan in August.

Nissan Motor Co also intends to introduce a mass-market electric car in the United States in December.

Similarly, Ford will also introduce an all-electric version of its Focus which will be available somewhere in late 2011.
