Over the course of the last financial year, Hyundai added two crucial products to their existing line up in the form of the 2018 Elite i20 and the new Verna. Almost instantly, Hyundai’s new offerings have become strong contenders in their respective segments. In the coming year, Hyundai will aim to build on this momentum as they launch a new small car positioned between the Eon and Grand i10, as well as the facelift Hyundai Creta. Hyundai currently has 493 dealers and more than 1,306 service points across India and operates an R&D facility in Hyderabad.
Globally, Hyundai Motors Limited forms an integral part of the Hyundai Motor Company’s export. India acts as an export hub to almost 88 countries across Africa, Middle East, Latin America, Australia and the Asia Pacific.
