Nonetheless, the South Korean carmaker had also announced a “Strategy 2025” roadmap in its Wednesday’s (December 4th) announcement under which the automaker was expecting to spend a whopping sum of 10 trillion won per year until 2025, while undermining impacts of Hyundai’s latest quote, an analyst at KTB Investment & Securities, Lee Han-Joon said on Wednesday (December 4th), “Its announcement of investment plan and goals is full of good words, but not real results yet.
