A brief history of Hyundai H100

The Hyundai H100, or Hyundai Porter as it's known in other countries, was originally released in 1977 as the Hyundai HD1000. It was designed to be a minibus and a truck, with its uses ranging from people-carrier to ambulance to flatbed.

Hyundai discontinued the HD1000 in 1981 but revived the name in 1986 with the second-generation model – a rebadged version of the Mitsubishi Delica. The design and purpose of the vehicle remained the same.

Hyundai introduced the third-generation H100 in 1996 with updated body styling, and two-door truck and four-door van versions being made available.

The fourth generation was released in 2004 and is the current model available today.
