South Korea’s biggest auto parts maker Hyundai Mobis Co. said Friday last year’s revenue reached a record 51.9 trillion won ($42.17 billion), driven by strong demand for high-end components. The figure is up 24.5 percent from a year earlier and it was the first time the company’s annual sales exceeded 50 trillion won.

Revenue also climbed 29.1 percent to 15 trillion won and net profit gained 14.9 percent on increased sales of high-margin modules and core components for electrification.
