Lots of other big companies owned majority stake is SsY over the period. In August 2010, Mahindra & Mahindra Limited was chosen as the preferred bidder for SsangYong. The acquisition was completed in February 2011 and cost Mahindra 522.5 Billion Won.

(utilizing existing Mercedes-Benz networks) while giving Mercedes a competitor in the then-booming SUV market. This resulted in the SsangYong Musso, which was sold first by Mercedes-Benz and later by SsangYong. Hope the above helps to understand SsY

My bad on the company, I thought Kia owned most every industry in south Korea, TVs, cars, everything. So I figure it was china... No one knew who they were until they read the other article.

For the most part this company is sold in Korea only, different styles and less power, but less emissions, better for driving in huge towns like seoul
Raymond Reynoso Sep 14, 2011
Yeah it's Korean just like the Hyundai Veloster. The same exact car.
Bert Kelly-Johnston Sep 14, 2011
Ken, I'm missing your point about China. It's Korean isn't it?
Ken Madison Sep 14, 2011
Leave it to china to make me hate a car.
