Hyundai Motor thanks Brazil
Planning to visit Rio de Janeiro’s Christ the Redeemer statue sometime in the next two years? Well, then you can thank Hyundai Motor Brazil for the free wireless internet access that will allow you to send tweets, and to use Facebook and Instagram to post your sight-seeing snaps when you get there!
Celebrating the 450th anniversary of the Brazilian city, the free internet access is being offered to three million people who visit the Brazil’s iconic statue for the next two years.
William Lee, president of Hyundai Motor Brazil, said at an event held at the peak of the 700-m Corcovado Mountain, where the statue is located: “Hyundai Motor is well received by Brazilians with wide-open arms. Specially developed for Brazilian Market, the HB20 immediately became a sales success by reaching accumulated sales of 500 000 units since its launch at the end of 2012.
“We are proud to be able to return their affection by offering wireless internet to visitors of Christ the Redeemer.”
Hyundai Motor Brazil will also support four promising Brazilian athletes for two years. Martine Grael and Kahena Kunze (sailing) and Marcus Vinicius D’Almeida and Andrey Muniz de Castro (archery) will be provided with better training and preparation conditions for national and international competitions.
They will also participate in digital activities and events organised by Hyundai Motor, in which they will promote their achievements and personal stories of resilience.
