Hyundai Motor Group companies’ shareholders rejected on Friday Elliott Management’s demands for a massive special dividend and board seats, dealing a blow to the U.S. hedge fund’s campaign to shake up South Korea’s second-biggest family-run conglomerate.
Although Hyundai fended off the threat from Elliott at the closely watched vote, it still faces a daunting challenge of winning shareholder support for a planned restructuring that should aid the handover of the group’s reins to heir apparent Euisun Chung.
Maruti Suzuki and Hyundai India dominated the list of top 10 passenger vehicles sold in January, not leaving space for any other carmaker for the third consecutive month.
Data collated from the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturer (SIAM) and independent research show that vehicles from Maruti Suzuki bagged seven positions, while Hyundai’s cars grabbed the remaining place in the monthly bestsellers chart.
Hyundai car owners rejoice. The South Korean carmaker has started a new initiative wherein it will carry out repair services at a location of customers’ choice. Periodic services, minor repairs, dry wash and car cleaning are some of the services covered under this initiative.
Customers can book and pay for the doorstep services online.

Hyundai Motor Co and affiliate Kia Motors Corp said on Wednesday they will recall about 168,000 US vehicles at risk of fuel leaks, after recalling them in 2017 for engine fire risks, and will offer software upgrades for 3.7 million vehicles.
A high-pressure fuel pipe may have been damaged or improperly installed as part of an engine replacement during the prior recall, and that installation could increase the risk of fire, the companies said.
