The Daimler–Hyundai Truck Corporation was a joint venture established between Daimler AG and Hyundai Motor Company[1] in 2000 to produce high-tech middle-range trucks and buses in the Korean market beginning in 2004.[2]

After numerous delays and disputes,[3] the planned venture was cancelled in 2004, with DaimlerChrysler selling its 10.65 percent stake in Hyundai Motor.[4]
