SEOUL — Korea's Hyundai Group this month is expected to approve a request by Hyundai Motor Co. Ltd. and its subsidiary, Kia Motor Corp., to spin off from the parent and combine with two other Hyundai units. The goal is to create a super-automotive conglomerate with enough asset base strength to do battle against global automakers. The new Hyundai Motor group would consist of Hyundai Motor, Kia Motor, Hyundai Capital and Hyundai Precision Industries.
