SEOUL (Reuters) - Hyundai Motor Co (005380.KS: Quote) is considering producing pick-up trucks, an executive told reporters on Tuesday, saying its Santa Cruz crossover truck concept got "good response" at the Detroit auto show in January.

However, Park Byung-cheol, a director at Hyundai's R&D division, added that there were "hurdles" to the production, without elaborating further.

He also said there was no current plan to manufacture its Tucson crossovers in the United States.
