The positive sales performance by Hyundai in January 2021 can be attributed to a number of models in the brand’s product portfolio that continued their positive momentum in the market. The Creta continues its reign as it found 12,284 new homes last month. In comparison, the compact SUV registered 10,592 unit sales in the preceding month i.e. December 2020. In October 2020, the company sold a total of 14,023 units of the Creta followed by 12,017 units in November 2020 on the back of the festive season during which the market showed positive signs of recovery and the same was quite needed as the industry was reeling under Covid-19 pandemic.
On the other hand, the Hyundai Venue subcompact SUV also registered impressive sales numbers at 11,779 units in January 2021. The number is even better than the festive period (November 2020) during which the Venue reported 9,265 unit sales. Similarly, the Grand i10 Nios starts the new year well as one of India’s best-selling hatchbacks. Just like in December 2020, the Grand i10 Nios is expected to be among the top five best-selling hatchbacks in India in January 2021 as well with 10,865 units sold.
