Hyundai Motor India today said rupee's depreciation against the dollar has not impacted the company's production as it has been compensating the shortfall in the domestic market by exploring newer global markets.
"The rupee depreciation has not really impacted the company's production as it helps us to explore the export market. We have been able to compensate shortfall in domestic market by looking at newer global markets," company's Finance and Corporate Affairs Director R Sethuraman told PTI after the launch of Grand i10 here.
