The Hyundai Porter (Hangul:현대 포터), also known as the Hyundai H-100, is a pick-up truck produced by the South Korean manufacturer Hyundai since 1977.[1]

History[edit]

First generation (1977–1981)[edit]

The first generation, launched in January 1977, was called the Hyundai HD1000 and was available in both truck and minibus (3 and 12-seater van, ambulance) versions. The truck was called the Porter. The HD1000 was discontinued in 1981.

In November 1986, Hyundai revived the label with the introduction of the second generation Porter, which was now a rebadged licensed second generation Mitsubishi Delica (L300). While the third generation Delica was also built by Hyundai, it was known as the Grace and was marketed only as a van, in parallel with the Porter truck range. It was built with the following body styles: 2-door truck, 4-door truck, 3-door van and 4-door van.
