Hyundai overhauls management in electric vehicle push
Hyundai Motor has replaced its top foreign executives and made more than 200 promotions in its biggest personnel shake-up ever as the South Korean automaker pushes into electric vehicles and self-driving cars.
The management overhaul marks a generational change after Euisun Chung, 51, took over at Hyundai last year from his ailing father, Chung Mong-koo, who had run the company for two decades.
在今年51岁的郑义宣(Euisun Chung)去年从执掌现代汽车20年、健康状况不佳的父亲郑梦九(Chung Mong-koo)手中接过领导权后，此次管理层大调整标志着一场代际交替。
The move comes days after Toyota announced it would pour $35bn into a shift toward electric vehicles as the Japanese carmaker prepares to take on rival Tesla. Both Hyundai and Toyota had been criticised for moving slowly to adopt carbon-neutral technologies.
