With just a couple of days to go before the first kick off at the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil, the Hyundai Motor Company has delivered over one thousand vehicles for the ground transportation that will ferry the teams of the qualified nations at the world’s biggest sporting event in Brazil.
Hyundai Motor recently held an official handover ceremony for the cars at Arena de Sao Paulo, in Sao Paulo, Brazil, to deliver the branded team buses and the 1,021 sedans and vans including the Equus, Genesis, Azera, Santa Fe, Sonata, Tucson (ix35), Veloster, H1, H100 and Brazil-exclusive HB20. The vehicles will ensure the smooth operation of the global event, transporting FIFA officials, national teams, members of the organizing committee, referees and media representatives throughout the tournament.
The 32 team buses are decorated with national team colours, flags and the winning slogans of the ‘Be There With Hyundai’ competition, a unique global initiative run by Hyundai Motor that encouraged participation from fans all around the world. Furthermore, each bus will be escorted by a specially-decorated Grand Santa Fe SUV, as part of the company’s exclusive sponsorship privileges.
In addition to the delivery of cars, Hyundai Motor will operate a complete Service Team at all World Cup Stadiums and FIFA facilities to ensure the best service support and assistance to drivers and fleet of cars during the entire event. Prior to the delivery, HMB’s Service Team trained over 1,000 drivers to become familiar with each model, as well as learn about maintenance, safe driving techniques and routes. Beyond the service support, drivers can also depend on Hyundai Motor’s nation-wide dealer network for dedicated support.
